BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 514. ( Less is Greater, Greater is less .)

“and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Knowing one hundred percent the truth of who we are gives us the identity we need to move forwards in the fullness of who we are.

Our foundation is in Jesus. He as foundation and cornerstone is powerful and withstands all shaking. We have permission to not shrink back from that confidence.

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”

Through Jesus we have the confidence of knowing what our season is and what God is doing in it. Just as the tribes of Issachar had understand as to their season and what to do.

Though there are still storms and challenges there are opportunities. The freshness of navigating in unplanned, unrehearsed territory gives freedom to progress instinctively, spontaneously and Spirit lead.

The last couple of pandemic years have taught us that we have to loose our grip on the rigidity of plans. We are discovering that they need to be written in pencil and to willingly be prepared to use the eraser and change them

It is survival by trusting and casting fear to the side. To allow loss and grief to be dropped as we experience that perfect love that casts out all fear.

God is close to the broken hearted.

“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.”

We are not as those driven under Pharaoh’s cruel task master rule but the freedom of being under the hand of the Father who wants always for our best and always to give us better.

We break free of what binds and stifles to the invitation of our inheritance.

We must discern the man made from the God made assignments. Heaviness comes from man while joy, life and lightness are from God.

Adopting the walk of faith and trust again as if walking in the garden sensing God’s pleasure and not the slave driven toil killing all curiosity, fascination and excitement.

Being allowed to ‘small up’ in freedom instead of ‘big up’ in responsibility.

Come as a child.

The illustration shows the pencil and eraser to make the flexible plans led by the Holy Spirit in this season emanating the light to push back the darkness.

Four Scriptures that come to mind:

“and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” ‭‭John‬ ‭8:32‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” ‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:8‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“Of Issachar, men who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, 200 chiefs, and all their kinsmen under their command.” ‭‭1 Chronicles‬ ‭12:32‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.” ‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:18‬ ‭ESV‬‬
