"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. Isaiah 55:8
We are not of this world and it's time for a better view. We enter this new view through encounters with God's heart. When we "Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise;" (Psalm 100:4) we get to enter a dimension in the Spirit that is not available to the world. Do you know what is available to you in this place?
I can tell you that in the midst of pain and difficulty, I have entered this place and the view was much different than what I saw. My circumstances did not change immediately, however, I did. God gave me a glimpse of how He saw me and my circumstances. He showed me what He was going to do through it and you know what happened?...My stance became one of vicotry instead of desperation.
What if God allows the enemy in because He is using him for His purposes? Isn't that what He did when Jesus was crucified? I challenge you to come up higher. I challenge you to not be overwhelmed and desperate but instead gain a better view of God's ways. Ask the questions, because God is longing to give you a glimpse of Heaven. It's what Jesus died to give you.
On the eve of Jerusalem Day, the 70th anniversary of Israel the nation reclaiming it's identity and inheritance, I thank you. For all that you are and all that you hold.
When I close my eyes, I can still hear you.
I can still smell Your fragrance and feel the wind on my face.
When I close my eyes I can feel the heartbeat of heaven.
When I close my eyes my heart is alive in Your heart My King.
I can lean on Your chest and feel the breath of life moving.
I am accepted in the beloved.
In You, I live and move and have my being.
Thank you for the treasure of You and the time spent together here.
I have not even begun to unwrap all that I gained in Your presence here my Lord.
You are remarkable, irreplacable, undeniable and worthy of all praise.
You are unmoved, unchanged, forever King of all.
You are my song, my cup and my portion forever and ever.
