In order to see where God is taking us, it helps to understand where “we are” in the process. Note I said “process” and not “moment”. The process is temporary and can be adapted, shifted, or corrected. “Correction” here in the way that I am using it does not imply right or wrong. It means rather an “adjustment of perception”.
When we set about to establish “who is right or wrong”, then we are setting ourselves up to be deceived by what we may feel or physically see with our own eyes.
Every man doing what is right “in his own eyes”. No King in the land, such as we see illustrated in the Book of Judges in God’s Word. Is Jesus reigning and ruling on the throne of your heart or are you perhaps leaning towards your own understanding because it “feels better or easier” to do so? May we give up the “right to be right”. May we not lean unto our own understanding.
May we esteem the needs of the other over our own. May we fully extend our heart to the other without respect to conditions subject to what we feel, see, hear, smell, taste, or touch with our physical senses. As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. Guard your lips with heart discernment “before” you act. Oh, Lord Jesus, have mercy upon on us! And He does and shall. Are we moving, living and having our being “in Christ”? May we carefully examine our hearts this moment!
Remember, God may call things that are “not physically yet present” as being as “though they already are”. If we are “in Christ” in the manner that we are walking out our lives, then when aught to be seeing more in alignment with “what He sees” in our situation, how we are enacting our very being in real life.
Are we taking that “next step” that He shows us when it feels most uncomfortable to do so? It even may seem impossible to do. That is often when can get stuck and not transcend the very issues in our lives that are holding us back from drawing near in a true heart in full assurance of faith.
Jesus is always moving from point to point in our lives simultaneously, while at the same time not losing focus of intent or perception on any one point while remaining centered in the very purpose of His heart. He keeps all points encompassed, connected and relating, each to the other. Are we moving with Him and keeping our perception purified through His eyes?
“Have this same attitude in yourselves which was in Christ Jesus. Look to Him as your example in selfless humility. In all things and with all relations with others.
Although He existed in the form and unchanging essence of God, as One with Him;
He possessed the fullness of all the nature of God and did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped.
It was not as if He did not already possess it; but emptied Himself and assumed the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men, He became completely human but was without sin, being fully God and man. (Philippians 2:5-7 Amplified and condensed)
So we aught to avoid the trap of thinking we know better. Only in the mind of Christ is discovered the fullness of the best outcome in your mind that illustrates the very character of Jesus which we are to demonstrate to one another. Lord Jesus, have mercy upon us. May we, as we behold one another, visualize that moment, as if we are looking at Jesus, face to face. There we must not look or discern through filters of judgment or preconception.
I know I am going very deep in subject matter here this morning. I hope you can stay on this journey. I sit face to face in the Presence of Jesus and this is what He asks me to express and to make known to the best of my ability. I am on the same level playing field with you. We are sons and daughters of the King Most High; Jesus. Each of us is special and unique in His eyes. May we see one another in the same light. This is Where I sense God is taking his church in coming times which is already underway. As we have eyes to see, then we shall so be.
I had a dream early this morning where I observed that we all had wings to fly, but they had not been used perhaps in a very long time. We perhaps had forgotten how to use them. But we each had the wings attached but they were like sails on a sailboat still bound to the mast. As the bindings are released the soft breeze begins to fill the sails until they are fully extended and the winds crescendow into a full gale. The ship begins to move faster and faster. Each of us are holding a little child in our arms. The children are begging us “please mommy or daddy just lift me into the wind and let go because I know I can fly, please release me into the wind. It will be okay, really it will; pretty please?
We did so and our children opened their wings and were suspended momentarily in the air and then they settled back into our arms. “See it is okay. I can fly. Now you know I see and believe just because I can. I want you to enjoy this with me. Can we play like this every day? Now you believe me, right? I was born to play. We all are supposed to live in simplicity and innocence. Jesus loves me and you so much because He tells me so all the time. Don’t you believe Jesus like I do? I pray that you can. If I can see, then so can you play like me”?
Will you and I believe God? In the Father’s arms the impossible is made possible. Now I will wipe my tears and say goodbye until we meet again. There is no more to say in this moment. God bless you!
