BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 587 . ( Less is Greater, Greater is less .)

“For the thing that I fear comes upon me, and what I dread befalls me. I am not at ease, nor am I quiet; I have no rest, but trouble comes.”

Dwelling upon ourselves, upon our fears can open a door for the very thing we fear to materialise.

It is far better not to meditate upon dis ease but more upon the good that we are promised to be blessed and to prosper by.

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

‭‭From a divine perspective we and the world look different. What is sourced from heaven can abide here on earth. Fear is not sourced from heaven but from the enemy.

Much of life’s experience in this world tests our responses but also train us to spiral into different understandings and therefore modified response.  

Repetition and circling round the same is often the result of not learning first time round. We do have authority to break cycles of our own or generational origins.

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”

We replace it with the opposite and call down from heaven righteousness peace and joy. We are reformed and set off in a new trajectory irrespective of whether we are equipped with all the answers. 

Faith does not have all the answers it allows gaps for God to fill along the journey. Our response and relationship with Him are important, we are not robots but unique individuals with our own identity in Him.

“For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”

God requires a partnership and co-labouring. We are sons and daughters but also coheirs with Christ. 

There is a mutual trust and reliance to create His atmosphere wherever we are minimising that of the enemy.

In fear we magnify the enemy. In faith we magnify God.

The power of Jesus within us is so strong that no power of hell can move us. Yet equally Jesus words are for us to use that leadership and power to serve not to Lord it over and this was His example.

“But not so with you. Rather, let the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as one who serves.”

Our greatest role model becomes our greatest identity as we submit and allow Him to live within us because He always lives from the Father’s heart.

“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.”

As Christ is shown for who He really is who we really are is revealed also. 

“When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience,”

We are known by the fruits we bear. The fruit replicates what it is. Our testimony results from what we have walked through.

 It should have the fingerprint of God replicated and visible to become a multilayered benefit not only for me but for others to witness, identify with and equally become part of the multiple  body. 

The illustration shows both the circling in fear and the being the fingerprint of God in our life which replicates into others and multiple generations.  Light emanating to push back the darkness.
