BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 568 . ( Less is Greater, Greater is less .)

“We have this certain hope like a strong, unbreakable anchor holding our souls to God himself. Our anchor of hope is fastened to the mercy seat in the heavenly realm beyond the sacred threshold,”

Having felt to be bombarded with one disaster after another many are feeling desperate for peace and quiet and time to recoup.

Now, however, in the natural, seems any thing but with Covid and diseases still rearing and wars raging.

Spiritually to occupy a place of peace within a war is hostile to the enemy.

Jesus meets us always in our point of need. His presence is even more close in our battles, right by our side. With us He meets us in our trauma as gentle and lowly with the opponent He is violent.

Stuff follows us as long as we allow it to. We have to break agreement with it daily and each day come into alignment and agreement with Jesus.

The enemy attempts instead to keep our attention upon the opened wounds distracting our obsession to be kept there and upon isolation instead of our focus being on the face to face presence of God and upon others. The essence of the two greatest commands Jesus gave us to hinge our lives upon.

Our heart is bound in strength by our faith, hope and love. Our communion with God and our love in community with one another.

We have need of the strength of the threefold bond to fight of attack, war and death.

God is ever faithful and never overwhelmed. His touch heals the hurting places and restores life. Redeems anything the enemy has stolen. 

“So it is impossible for God to lie for we know that his promise and his vow will never change! And now we have run into his heart to hide ourselves in his faithfulness. This is where we find his strength and comfort, for he empowers us to seize what has already been established ahead of time—an unshakable hope!”

We must not allow our trauma to become self perpetuating.

We mark and speak out what Jesus has done for our points of reference and recall to always remain positive. 

Hope remains our reference not despair.

We can rest in the peace and joy of that place in the reassurance of His presence and emerge and fight with quiet confidence.

Our greatest warfare comes from a place of being in His presence and quiet. It does not have to be a move from a place of panic and therefore loud.

“Be still, and know that I am God.“

Trauma can be overcome. We are for others what Jesus is for us. Jesus called Lazarus out of the tomb, the trauma of his death. Others removed his death clothes.

Jesus calls us closer. Always to perceive Him and draw strength from Him by creating a sanctified space and a dependency on Him alone. 

  “Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

We in drawing upon and remaining within Him have His Shalom to offer to others because we are in the place of rest in the boat in the storm not the place of fear and panic. 

The illustration shows our anchor in Jesus Christ in heaven and not in things in the world. Light emanating to push back the darkness.

Four Scriptures that come to mind:

“So it is impossible for God to lie for we know that his promise and his vow will never change! And now we have run into his heart to hide ourselves in his faithfulness. This is where we find his strength and comfort, for he empowers us to seize what has already been established ahead of time—an unshakable hope!” Hebrews‬ ‭6:18‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“We have this certain hope like a strong, unbreakable anchor holding our souls to God himself. Our anchor of hope is fastened to the mercy seat in the heavenly realm beyond the sacred threshold,” Hebrews‬ ‭6:19‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“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

“Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭11:28‬ ‭ESV
