“Now, this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him,” 1 John 5:14-15 (NIV).
Even as we’re in the midst of seeking God, we can get off focus and begin to give ascent to our own thoughts.
Recently, in trying to figure out a next step, I was considering choices before me. Fortunately, the LORD quickly saved me from myself and my own thinking, as I received these powerful words from Him.
It is my hope this word will lift your spirit and encourage your faith no matter what you’re going through. Just when you think it’s the end, it may well be you are entering a new beginning instead.
Going to Daddy God first, staying in Him for the answer, and not leaning on our own understanding, will save us a lot of trouble! Receive this powerful word of the LORD.
I thank God for His sweet correction.
“This is not the end of it. It’s only the beginning. For here you sit, seeking Me, but deciding your own fate! What have I to do with it?
Pleading with Me will not change your heart. Plead with yourself for the change!
Only Ask, Believing, and then you will see the change you have waited for.
This is in MY REALM of POSSIBILITY – OUTSIDE of your mind. Yes, OUT of your mind!
So, I say to you, You MUST be OUT of YOUR MIND to think of ALL I can do!
OUT of your MIND and into EXTREME POWER
You see the storm approaching the coastline and you say, “Brace yourselves!”
But who is bracing themselves for the MAGNIFICENT POWER of GOD? This is the POWER of your anointing.
Brace yourself for it! For as a storm surge rises up in power, so shall your rise up and overtake the land in My Power, and THIS is ‘the GOOD stuff.’
This is the GOOD I came to do you!
So, “Overtake me, LORD,” you say. But when I do, you resist My power by your own thinking!
Let it never be again. Submit to the power of your God in all things, and all things will change and be overtaken by His WAVES of GOODNESS ~ even right now.
Speak to the waves and say, “We’re in this together! Carry me! Up and over that sand bar, and rest me on the ROCK that is HIGHER than I!”
Let this be the WIND that carries you into the next move of God. Fill up your sails with it.
Hold out your arms and let the wind that carries you lift you high above it all!
Then, see down on creation from a different vantage point and you will recognize things differently.
So far above that you can’t see the details of imperfection, but only the lights that cast the shadows as the WHOLE UNIT of MAN and LIFE ITSELF FIT together to make a much GREATER thing.
Far above from the heavens, I look down and see it all, even in the minute detail of you.
But up here, you will see it differently – A PATTERN of LIFE over all. So, Come On Up Higher and See what I mean.
Drift off with Me and watch what I do OVER the nations.
A CLARION CALL is coming — to one and all — but not all will answer, and nothing will stop those who do.
Will you be one of them? I hope so. I’m counting on you to Come with Me.
Up here, above it all to sort out the details of the living.
This is MY JUDGMENT SEAT view, MY VANTAGE POINT is ALL-ENCOMPASSING and PERFECT — without fail.
COME on up! HIGHER! FARTHER! It’s TIME now. Let Me show you what I AM doing.”
“After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this,” Revelation 4:1 (NIV).
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet[ no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end,” Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NIV).
It’s time. Go ahead and be out of your mind and into His Power. Go on up, higher!
