BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 505. ( Less is Greater, Greater is less .)

“I will set my eyes on them for good, and I will bring them back to this land. I will build them up, and not tear them down; I will plant them, and not pluck them up. I will give them a heart to know that I am the Lord, and they shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return to me with their whole heart.”

God makes a covenant and He keeps His promise. He is who He says He is. He will do what He says He will do.

He is now calling us back up the mountain to pray, communicate and repent and from that place we will become empowered.

In bowing to His kingdom where we make room for His mind and heart above our own we receive again and live by, the commandments that were written on stone by Moses for his rebellious followers but which have been placed in our hearts as followers of Jesus.

Willingness to be obedient and to be wooed by His peace and love aligns us to be purified to walk in His way of love and be the testimony of His kingdom.

“Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.”

The gospel came to the early church with power. The power of the Holy Spirit giving authority to everything asked in Jesus’ name in prayer or decree.

“because our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction. You know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake. And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you received the word in much affliction, with the joy of the Holy Spirit, so that you became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia.”

The kingdom belongs to the prince of Peace who equally has great authority and power over all we ask in His name. We, clothed in Him, reflect and imitate and just as in the early church the evidence of this spread like wild fire that is the hope of today.

Some Christians, churches, have not been distinguishable enough from the world to be taken notice of as those to heed and to follow.

Just as David’s life style went through a period of being mocked, ridiculed and disapproved of; he arose from it to be upstanding and a righteous respected leader.

He was empowered from being in a place of repentance, prayer and realigning to hear God’s heart.

So it is with us now being pulled back by God to stand in His righteousness. Be blessed with the hope of Christ and stand again like oaks strong, clothed in His fullness.

Simply Christians who look, walk, talk and are different from the world. Who swim against the flow of the many influenced by the world. Who cut away from the mass and walk boldly and confidently in a knowledge of what is pure and right because they have His mind.

This is no longer a word for the future it is for now.

It will be increasingly double edged. The victorious increase in harvest but simultaneously the increase of persecution as the enemy attempts to sensor and restrict.

When the true gospel is preached it may well be twisted as hate against what the world has grasped as it’s rights. There will be those brought to beauty and unity and those brought to ashes.

Jesus will walk upon the ashes raking them to reignite embers. The Holy Spirit will blow to fan the flames. God’s provision of storehouses of solutions will be as multiple as those in Joseph’s story.

Our promise is one always of hope as foretold in Isaiah 61.

“For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to sprout up before all the nations.”

God is the alpha and omega. The I am.

The Trinity as the : Father, The Son, The Holy Spirit. The ‘I will be,’ ‘ the I am,’ ‘ the I was,‘ who have introduced themselves to Missy’s father in the book and film called The Shack, as he returns to his family transformed by their special ministering.

The illustration shows the set eye of God upon us watching to emanate His light to see His ways as we seek Him. The light that pushes back the darkness.

Six Scriptures that come to mind:

“I will set my eyes on them for good, and I will bring them back to this land. I will build them up, and not tear them down; I will plant them, and not pluck them up. I will give them a heart to know that I am the Lord, and they shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return to me with their whole heart.” ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭24:6-7‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“And he said, “If now I have found favor in your sight, O Lord, please let the Lord go in the midst of us, for it is a stiff-necked people, and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for your inheritance.”” ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭34:9‬ ‭ESV

“Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.” ‭‭Romans‬ ‭13:11‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“because our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction. You know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake. And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you received the word in much affliction, with the joy of the Holy Spirit, so that you became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia.” ‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭1:5-7‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to sprout up before all the nations.” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭61:11‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“Now therefore, if you will indeed obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my treasured possession among all peoples, for all the earth is mine; and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words that you shall speak to the people of Israel.”” ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭19:5-6‬ ‭ESV‬‬
