BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 725 . ( Less is Greater, Greater is less )

“So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight.”

From heaven’s perspective prayer dismantles the enemy and is therefore epic in our lives. 

We walk by faith and not sight but know He is there and where we struggle and see no solution we have conviction that God, has the answer and the power.  

Jesus models the necessity to make the effort to draw aside, climb the mountain, go off alone to be with His Father and from that place of encounter He can walk upon water, kill the struggle surrounding. 

As Faith filled Christians we too can walk upon what others find themselves drowning in. There is an easier way to view our circumstances from the inside out with Jesus as our rock and core that outer circumstances cannot shake.

Looking from the outside in we allow the circumstances or situation to affect our emotions and knock our faith. 

Jesus’ ministry started a church how He wanted it to be.

Now He wants the church how He started it. 

“And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”

There is ease to be in His presence when we take time to draw close. God is always there, we discover, if we are not distracted.

Prayer has to be stirred up from the spirit and the flesh resists. Many of us are driven by comfort and not discipline.

Seeking the will of God always trumps our prayer requests which often represent our own will. 

It is from love not for love that we seek to commune. 

God has more investment in the process and heart and one to one encounter than the multitudes of superficial display of curiosity. 

Compromises of one generation become the opportunities for another. It is key to get to know Him not just of Him.

To be able to carry what is coming we have to go further than the shallow into the deep. Living in the shallow place we deceive one another

What grieves us also grieves God and requires being still in His presence . Revelation leads to impartation and transformation. It comes from a place of knowing God and His word.

We can be prepared for what is to come as well as having wisdom in what exists. 

We should not come from a spirit of despair. We look to God our hope , rock and refuge.

If it is war, famine and poverty. Be those who have His solutions like Joseph

Our decree might be to seek and find God’s strategies and solutions to any crisis we sense arising around us. 

““Do you give the horse his might? Do you clothe his neck with a mane? Do you make him leap like the locust? His majestic snorting is terrifying. He paws in the valley and exults in his strength; he goes out to meet the weapons. He laughs at fear and is not dismayed; he does not turn back from the sword.”

Prayer has power and brings the horse into the battle to out leap the locust. 

God is our strength and ouster of fear. 

The illustration shows the spiritual strength of prayer dismantling the enemy ploys. Pushing back the darkness.

Three Scriptures that come to mind: 

“So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭5‬:‭6‬-‭7‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” Hebrews‬ ‭11‬:‭6‬ ‭ESV‬‬

““Do you give the horse his might? Do you clothe his neck with a mane? Do you make him leap like the locust? His majestic snorting is terrifying. He paws in the valley and exults in his strength; he goes out to meet the weapons. He laughs at fear and is not dismayed; he does not turn back from the sword.” Job‬ ‭39‬:‭19‬-‭22‬ ‭ESV‬‬
