BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 552 . ( Less is Greater, Greater is less .)

“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

The connection we have with Christ and He with us is the priority of our lives.

From that position we know that we can have as much of God as we want every minute of everyday. 

He transforms us.

“to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.”

Our energy and grace on each day springs up from having spent time with Him from the very start of it.

“Be still, and know that I am God.“

God said to Moses ‘come up to me and wait’.

“The Lord said to Moses, “Come up to me on the mountain and wait there, that I may give you the tablets of stone, with the law and the commandment, which I have written for their instruction.”

We too are given instructions and words of revelation to be guided and aligned by.

We honour Him when we eat them, savour, digest and ponder them because then we begin to understand His heart. 

Our own hearts are flooded by what He imparts. We process dying to self and the flesh before He raises us higher. Moses was left waiting 6 days before God called Him out.

“The glory of the Lord dwelt on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days. And on the seventh day he called to Moses out of the midst of the cloud.”

Then he lingered with Him forty days while God unfolds revelation to him.

The consuming fire of God consumes us instead of being consumed with ourselves.

We then have our being in Him.

“In him we live and move and have our being’‘

When we recognise our ‘oneness’ in mind, body and soul it is inspiring and life giving.  

We do not mourn dying because we are swept up in living, moving and having our being in the beauty of who He is. 

What had been stolen is restored. We live life in all its abundance.

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”

There is no worry about peripheral things when we discover that we cannot live face to face with Jesus if other faces are in between.

That clarity of knowledge liberates us to the love we share. Focus is shifted off us when we know His love.

We are reformed to a stance of humble confidence and surety. Despite all of what we are not, He loves us and we can trust Him in the truth that wisdom imparts.

It is only when we are set free by love that we too can truly love, seeing the value and worth in everyone else who like us are not perfect.

The illustration shows us crucified with Christ so that it is no longer us who live but Him. His love liberated to be the light emanated that pushes back the darkness.

Seven  Scriptures that come to mind:

“to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.” ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭4:22-24‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalm‬ ‭46:10‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“The Lord said to Moses, “Come up to me on the mountain and wait there, that I may give you the tablets of stone, with the law and the commandment, which I have written for their instruction.”” Exodus‬ ‭24:12‬ ‭ESV‬‬
