BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 574 . ( Less is Greater, Greater is less .)

“Everything seems to go wrong when you feel weak and depressed. But when you choose to be cheerful, every day will bring you more and more joy and fullness.”

We are propelled into our destiny and walk in it  when we are healed by our forgiveness. 

We are restored. 

God can supernaturally anoint us to forget and we can carry and recall the good.

Nothing then chains us to the past.

It is a lie when we say we can forgive but we will never forget.

We are remaining in bondage that denies us the full joy of the feast we can experience.

Our breaking can be our making even if our stripping can feel painful it has been purposeful.

God vies to be central and all consuming but brings life.

“Going on eastward with a measuring line in his hand, the man measured a thousand cubits, and then led me through the water, and it was ankle-deep. Again he measured a thousand, and led me through the water, and it was knee-deep. Again he measured a thousand, and led me through the water, and it was waist-deep. Again he measured a thousand, and it was a river that I could not pass through, for the water had risen. It was deep enough to swim in, a river that could not be passed through.”

Joseph suffered hurt from the betrayal, rejection and jealousy of his brothers and fears what will befall him but he is reinstated into his destiny and purpose over time as God enabled him to forget his hardships and He restored his fruitfulness in his afflictions.

Later his ability to forgive and forget entitles his full restoration and his purpose to be fulfilled.

We are not destined for independent glory but have commitments to one another and God’s heart for others, whether they deserve it or not, born out of love. 

He raises like a phoenix out of the ashes. Horticulturalists know that ash is needed for good fruit to be produced.

A curse removed becomes a blessing. God is in control.

Our sight remains on Him not on the circumstances around us and a new dawn awakens. 

“My heart is steadfast, O God! I will sing and make melody with all my being! Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn! I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations.”

Before the dawn can be the darkest time. We have the potential always to carry the dawn within us. So that we can bring Light to others.

“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you. And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.”

The darker it becomes the more we appreciate the Light. God does a new thing in us each season and each season is preparation for the next.

Those who look to Jesus are radiant with Light. We will not block out the Light by remembering offences we must let go of.

What was broken will not define us. We enter with healing into the new dawn.

The illustration shows the Light of the new dawn carrying the promise of our destiny and purpose. The light emanating to push back the darkness.

Five. Scriptures that come to mind:
