BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 793 . ( Less is Greater, Greater is less )

“The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad; the desert shall rejoice and blossom like the crocus; it shall blossom abundantly and rejoice with joy and singing. ”

Any personal liberation and breakthrough is never meant for us alone but for the corporate body. 

We have a tendency towards small mindedness relative to God’s angle. He will see all that has become parched blossoming again. However what we agree with is key.

That which God blesses us with we have need to back enthusiastically and speak into being with our agreement whilst equally we have to stop cursing ourselves with words of negativity from the enemy.

The enemy’s ploy is to intimidate and cause us to back down, to confuse us into poor decision making, manipulation by distorting how we receive and deception where he gives false examples and revelation of how we bow down and worship false gods and idols. 

False gods cannot protect what we value. God has to send plagues and undo order to regain our attention.

 When in scripture it says He hardens His heart it can be translated as strengthens His heart, a conviction to gain our misdirected attention. 

God of order will allow chaos for our discovery and to be liberated.

It seems strange that He can be answering our prayers by creating chaos and battle zones! 

His weight in the midst has to be discerned and we need Holy Spirit wisdom to act in accordance. Therefore to not be praying against His move. 

Our prayers are described as incense captured in golden bowls in heaven.

“And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.”

The prayers are described as being burned with holy fire and as such they are purified and give a fragrance to the atmosphere. 

“and the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, rose before God from the hand of the angel.”

The angels cast them back to earth as descending fire upon the enemy. 

“Then the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on the earth, and there were peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake.”

Our prayers hold a power beyond our comprehension in the spiritual warfare that is ensuing. 

Often we spend time praying and asking God for what is already a foregone in His promises and word and we miss discerning the prayers that He can weaponise.

 Or we, in lack of wisdom, are countering what it is God’s will to accomplish. 

Hence the importance of being Spirit and Word led in our communications and prayers. Aligned with His heart and not distracted by our own soul thoughts in our relationship. 

We pray in the Spirit. 

Our weapon against darkness is to be light. To dress in light and be energised by light is our warfare to dispelling the enemy darkness. 

“The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armour of light.”

The illustration shows the golden bowl of our prayers as incense in heaven burned by God’s holy fire as weapons of spiritual warfare to emanate light that ‭‭pushes back the darkness.

Five Scriptures that come to mind:

“The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad; the desert shall rejoice and blossom like the crocus; it shall blossom abundantly and rejoice with joy and singing.

“and the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, rose before God from the hand of the angel.” Revelation‬ ‭8‬:‭4‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“Then the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on the earth, and there were peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake.” ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭8‬:‭5‬ ‭ESV‬‬
