BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 708 . ( Less is Greater, Greater is less

“I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.”

We are always connected to God. We have peace when we believe that He always hears our voice we know we are never alone. 

His favour and grace is over us and has been through generations no matter what their trials and tribulations have been. No matter what ours are He has been and is faithful. 

We have and are a legacy of His goodness. 

We have offspring who we too lead into faith. Our faith in them grows into their own faith as they grow in the Lord. The baton is passed on along with the momentum. 

Our faith was birthed from our fathers. 

Their ceiling was our floor, our ceiling is the floor of our children.

Children have the phenomenon of the same strength of Holy Spirit power as adults and their child like trust and faith in what they know is not watered down by adult doubt and is powerful. God honours their acceptance and trust. 

God speaks to us through our children too if we listen because they receive from a place of rest where we have grown into the habits of busy works and performance. 

We encounter time in the presence of Jesus in rest. That is where our strength and authority comes from, it is a grace place, it is not a works and performance place. It is being in the abiding in love and receiving grace place. 

Our lives and actions then flow out of Him not our efforts. His values differ from ours. His wisdom and knowledge greater. 

Jesus is the doorway and we become the pillars of that portal becoming  His church and His strength and power this is our challenge. We enter into God and in His depths are safe and at rest in His vastness. 

“The one who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God. Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name.”

The name of the Lord is a strong tower. Children don’t look as if they are strong but in spirit to be child like is the entrance into the kingdom.  

“The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.”

Children are matter of fact and therefore relate to God absolutely. There is no questioning in their knowledge just acceptance.  A child has God’s heart and an incredulous belief that God can do whatever He says. It is their truth. 

Jesus says bring the children to me.  We must be intentional to be like children in our faith. Child like faith is not childish faith. It is from a place of I know. 

“but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”

Knowing God is walking alongside as in the garden and knowing what He is doing because we see and hear it. It is reality. It is truth. It is a simple place of rest. 

This is who we are born to be. His children operating boldly in His love and faith.

God will speak to us sometimes through children because they are listening and hearing when we seemingly are not!

We have to embrace our childlike faith it is a doorway to strength and power. 

The illustration shows Jesus as the strong tower and the children of God running from the world into His immense power and strength. Emanating light that pushes back the darkness.

Four Scriptures that come to mind:

“The one who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God. Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name.”Revelation‬ ‭3‬:‭12‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.” Proverbs‬ ‭18‬:‭10‬ ‭ESV‬‬
