BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 711 . ( Less is Greater, Greater is less )

“But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”— these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.”

The depths and the nature of God are never redefined, they never change.

“so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.”

Whatever circumstances we go through whether High or low, He remains the same and is therefore our rock and anchor and why we can continually praise Him. 

This is understanding that comes from knowing what the Spirit that connects us through God’s heart communicates the Gospel hope come what may. 

“Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God.”

We are not only waiting for Christ’s return or our eternity after death. 

We understand that Christ has already won and has made our connection with God complete now. 

The Gospel is not a buffet where we pick and choose only what our preferences might be. It instead is the full meal and banquet where nothing is omitted from beginning to end and on. 

The gospel comes in one total truth and transforms lives. There is power in it. God is spirit and we know Him in our spirit.

Our faith is not in men and their wisdom but in that of God’s wisdom. God is the source of all gospel wisdom.

“And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.”

When God uses us to co-labour and partner with Him imparting spiritual wisdom or power we  acknowledge it’s source giving the gift we receive back in full but, just like Mary pouring out her value over Jesus, that which she poured splashed back over her and she received the same perfume as Him and bring the same to the atmosphere.   

We are carriers of Him but never the source. Our faith in Jesus and the gospel translates into holding His power in our hands. From that surrendered place we can serve.

“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

When I am weak I am strong and God’s grace is enough. 

Problems and loss do not attract power but they instead provide an opportunity to surrender and we connect in humility and discover power on another level. 

Destinies are born out of brokenness and weakness. Still saying our “yes” in obedience and trust in God becomes our opportunity to demonstrate the gospel.

“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”—”

God speaks to us through The Holy Spirit that has been given to us so that we might know these things. 

“Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God.”

God like some search engine of magnitude collates our every experience, emotion and response to complete us and develop our spirit wisdom. 

His thoughts for our safety are more numerous than the grains of sand. 

“How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with you.”

Those born only of the world are seeking the answers that only God can give. 

“The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.”

We can inspire generations to crave and hunger for more and discern the spirit when they come to know Christ. 

“The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one. “For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.”

The illustration shows Christ the tree of life returned connection to God’s intention for us to know and be with Him emanating light that pushes back the darkness.

Eight Scriptures that come to mind:
