BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 620. ( Less is Greater, Greater is less .)

“but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,”

Jesus is the imprint of God that we receive in our heart and which then radiates His glory through us.

Grace is God’s etching tool.

It is never outside appearance but the heart within that defines our identity. 

Biologically epigenetic DNA can modify within our environment. 

Spiritually we can switch on when deep calls to deep and be transformed. 

We are etched into Jesus’ palms, engraved , tattooed, into His identity as we die to our own self. 

God’s love mirrored out of our image in our intimacy with Him. 

The wonder and joy drawing us into a greater intimacy where the fragrance comes from us both indistinguishably just in that rest and abiding in. 

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

Connecting with Jesus we are set free from our selves and can serve and mediate as all our barriers come down.

We can become all things to all people and come alongside as we yield to Him. 

“For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them.”

 “I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some. I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.”

 Intimacy with Jesus promotes love and in that yielded , undone place there is no offence and no thought of exposing judgement or confidences.  

“Whoever covers an offense seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates close friends. Whoever loves transgression loves strife; he who makes his door high seeks destruction.”

‭‭ “Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

Offence is when we are protecting ourselves but our identity is in Him. Self is dead so we have nothing to protect.

Jesus is secure in Himself and so we can be also. Jesus revealed to us has a beautiful aroma. The essence of love, of God, detectable in and through us by others too.

“Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble.”

Anything that is planted out of offence is an offence to heaven and God will not inhabit it. 

Reactionary responses are less prevalent when we prioritise connection to the Lord.    

The order is frequently that there is turbulence prior to promotion causing dis ease because the enemy is attacking. 

Biblically the storm on the lake preceded the demoniac deliverance. Kingdom promotion is about maturing and identifying.

The place set up for success is also the place of squeeze and refining to purify. 

The gold resulting from the unpolluted, unmarried, polished to shine after the rubbish has been dealt with. 

New wine is made by squeezing, crushing and pressing the grape. Pressed and woven into God’s love.

“that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God’s mystery, which is Christ,”

The new season requires the flaws of the old to be pressed out. Not cosmetically wrapped up and covered up.

We are robbed of where He wants to take us if we fight against our rest and abiding. Our battle is fought in our rest. When we refuse to be baited into excessive action. When we wait upon the Lord. When we refuse to be driven any more.

When we let all that is within us come to full term to be birthed with nothing lost or aborted. 

The illustration shows us engraved on the hand of Jesus as He is engraved in our heart. Emanating light that pushes back the darkness.

Seven Scriptures that come to mind:
