BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 493 ( Less is Greater, Greater is less .)

“Live a cheerful life, without complaining or division among yourselves. For then you will be seen as innocent, faultless, and pure children of God, even though you live in the midst of a brutal and perverse culture. For you will appear among them as shining lights in the universe, holding out the words of eternal life. I haven’t laboured among you for nothing, for your lives are the fruit of my ministry and will be my glorious boast at the unveiling of Christ!”

Keeping hope personally and corporately is part of our shining light in the world.

We become a blessing to others as God blesses us in our trust and hope holding firm in Him.

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.”

When we remain in Jesus the power from our devotion flows out of Him and eclipses all else attempting to black out our hope.

We have an individual God given sound which is not, grumbling along side the world, but of a frequency of harmony, peace and joy that cannot be extinguished.

Jesus offers eternal comfort and we, in His image, have the capability of bringing the same comfort and joy to the world that He has done since His birth.

‭ “And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.”

His comfort cascades as it is in even more abundance in times of suffering. It multiplies from one to another. As we receive so we have more to give.

As the world sets its sights on chaos and grumbling so ours become more set on comfort circulating peace and joy and being blessed.

“For he is the Father of tender mercy and the God of endless comfort. He always comes alongside us to comfort us in every suffering so that we can come alongside those who are in any painful trial. We can bring them this same comfort that God has poured out upon us. And just as we experience the abundance of Christ’s own sufferings, even more of God’s comfort will cascade upon us through our union with Christ. If troubles weigh us down, that just means that we will receive even more comfort to pass on to you for your deliverance! For the comfort pouring into us empowers us to bring comfort to you. And with this comfort upholding you, you can endure victoriously the same suffering that we experience. Now our hope for you is unshakable, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings you will also share in God’s comforting strength.”

Abiding in Christ we get to identify the pull and push of opposing forces. Our choice is positive.

From complaint to contentment. From joyless to joyful. From hopeless to hopeful. From purposeless to purposeful.

God is using time to pull us deeper into Christ. Hidden in Him revelation comes as we die to self. In this death we become life to not only ourselves but to others also .

We draw closer to the greater days. We sense the teetering on the edge. Being on the cusp.

The sense that we need to be ready for what God is doing. He is faithful. His zeal will prevail and do this. It is all part of the big picture and plan He has and has always had.

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.”

The illustration shows our feet stood on the firm foundation of Christ. Clothed and hidden in Him and in His image bringing comfort and joy. Light emanating in the world pushing back the darkness.

Five Scriptures that come to mind:

“May undeserved favour and endless peace be yours continually from our Father God and from our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One! All praises belong to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he is the Father of tender mercy and the God of endless comfort. He always comes alongside us to comfort us in every suffering so that we can come alongside those who are in any painful trial. We can bring them this same comfort that God has poured out upon us. And just as we experience the abundance of Christ’s own sufferings, even more of God’s comfort will cascade upon us through our union with Christ. If troubles weigh us down, that just means that we will receive even more comfort to pass on to you for your deliverance! For the comfort pouring into us empowers us to bring comfort to you. And with this comfort upholding you, you can endure victoriously the same suffering that we experience. Now our hope for you is unshakable, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings you will also share in God’s comforting strength.”‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭1:2-7‬ ‭TPT‬‬
