BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 642. ( Less is Greater, Greater is less .)

“Therefore I intend always to remind you of these qualities, though you know them and are established in the truth that you have. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”

Peter in the bible talks about the present truth that only comes from God and was what they witnessed in their lives as disciples and apostles of Jesus. 

The voice of God through the Holy Spirit anchors us.

There were those with the Issachar spirit who were anointed to know the timings of God and how to therefore go along with it.  

“Of Issachar, men who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, 200 chiefs, and all their kinsmen under their command.”

Also those who have knowledge so that God can be part of the living solution. To be encountered.

“And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son.”

‭‭We are in a present place of feeling some degree of exposure and loss. Where we felt we had worth and value may feel as if it is being eroded away.

The time when we are sensing the prompt to open our hands and let things go. Days of radical transformation. However, God always improves and upgrades.

It is worth weathering the change, temporarily feeling out of our depth as we compute how to operate in and do the new, as it facilitates such a wider field of life. 

We and church will become unrecognisable in less than a decade. We need the grace of God to navigate the winds of change and keep up. His gift to us is flexibility to change and to accommodate.

Many are not born into church culture these days and yet we are increasingly feeling provoked to want others transformed by knowing Jesus.

To be anchored into truth. 

Our apologetic, diluted attempts of the past may be radically emboldened if we like Daniel speak out truths regardless of being deemed popular or not.  

The credibility grows as the truths establish as true. 

After Daniel boldly declared the interpretation of the vision of the writing on the wall , he was promoted with a ring and robes and trusted to be telling truths.  

Just as Daniel was protected in his purpose I am sure we too will be when we perhaps speak what some do not want to hear. 

God will back our boldness. Jesus is the standard of truth. The desire of nations.

There is a deep down hunger for truth planted within us before the creation of the world. It makes us spiritually receptive to it.

Our relationship with Jesus Christ tips us over the edge in boldness. As can we be the catalyst for others too, unlocking a realm of revelation and understanding.

There has been a resistance and reservation about acknowledging a spiritual world and battle but it is real. 

We have to engage in the conversation because it is the reality that people know they have issues with and no one trustworthy to turn to. 

There is a better way. Where you are and what you are is not the only way.

We can be set free from perversion and captivity. There is another option than the darkness of the world. People want to know the other option.

Jesus had no fear to say what had to be said boldly, courageously and with authority. 

That authority He has also given to us. It encompasses bold courageous truth telling.

The illustration shows us robed and ringed in Christ. Protected in our boldness to speak truth and emanate the light pushing back the darkness.

Four Scriptures that come to mind:

“Therefore I intend always to remind you of these qualities, though you know them and are established in the truth that you have. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” 2 Peter‬ ‭1:12, 21‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“Of Issachar, men who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, 200 chiefs, and all their kinsmen under their command.” 1 Chronicles‬ ‭12:32‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son.” Revelation‬ ‭21:5-7‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah‬ ‭43:19‬ ‭ESV‬‬
