BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 581 . ( Less is Greater, Greater is less .)

“you have loved righteousness and hated wickedness. Therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions;”

Success in God’s eyes and in the kingdom is not measured as success in the world.

God says well done to each of us individually as He sees us victorious in small measures over what for us individually seems insurmountable.  

He knows our battles our strengths and weaknesses. He praises us for our abiding in faith and hope in Him.

Our manifesting His power and fruits. Our perseverance and endurance. Our love of righteousness and hate of wickedness.

We can take ourselves off the hook of measuring our success as the world would see it. 

Our attention is always on what is Jesus saying and which direction is He leading us in. 

Our participation in holding the values of the kingdom close in our hearts.

God called David as a man after His own heart. What was in his heart trumped what God recognised in him.

We know he murdered and was adulterous. We know we fall short too but God sees what is in our hearts.

That is His priority for reformation if necessary even if that is through affliction.

“It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I might learn your statutes.”

Jesus said in this world we would suffer pain and affliction and that there would be wars and rumours of wars.

Discipline is an important training and we sense being in that place of waiting in silence to advance obeying God’s instruction and commands as the Israelites awaited Joshua’s command from God.

“So the people shouted, and the trumpets were blown. As soon as the people heard the sound of the trumpet, the people shouted a great shout, and the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they captured the city.”

The supernatural power of God triumphs in the supernatural battle He beholds.

He is judging people and nations weighing them in the balance of what He will and will not tolerate that is wrong.

We are sensing a place of chaos but He is in the midst to bring correction.

There is a revelation for many, in their season of weeping and repenting, of needing purification and a returning to our first love. Jesus.

It alerts us emotionally to our sense that we know what is righteous and what is wicked in our hearts. Even if we have ignored it in our minds. Our gift in this recognition is a peace and a joy.

There is a strength in aligning and connecting ourselves to like minded ones in this time of harvesting and sifting out of the chaff.

“I am a companion of all who fear you, of those who keep your precepts.”

His opinion matters to us more than the opinion of the world. We will not be compromised by fearing people more than Him.

A need to discern and see sin as sin and hate it for what it is from the enemy whilst still loving all people with our heart’s emotion.

This is a spiritual dynamic we are connecting with and will be seen in this season in the rise and fall of people, leaders and nations.

“From one man, Adam, he made every man and woman and every race of humanity, and he spread us over all the earth. He sets the boundaries of people and nations, determining their appointed times in history.”

Our prayer is to understand what we see as righteousness and wickedness and know where God is moving so that we align instead of oppose in what we ask.

God is intent upon having us cling closer to Him now more than ever. 

The illustration shows us clinging close within God’s heart cradled and anointed by the oil of His Holy Spirit discerning and loving righteousness and hating wickedness and blessed with joy. Light emanating to push back the darkness.
