We can do so much in our own strength; and many times it is show stopping amazing…and yet what Christ wants to do within us goes beyond our greatest human efforts!
Today’s blog post is to answer those questions I posed on yesterday’s blog entry titled, “Short-sighted to Eternal Vision!”
So here I was thinking about how I wanted to encourage women in my small group. It was such a beautiful walk through within my mind. I had these great ideas to put into action – having those “If and Then” obedient activations to encourage women to live the blessed life. To live with Heavenly Wit as I titled my most recent book. To see “Mission fields in the Midst of Battlefields.”
It was a noble effort, yet it was one in which I pointed people to what I did and how I did it…and then the divine interruption took place. This divine thought came through my mind posing this question, “Why are you are pointing to a what instead of the WHO?“
As I was in awe of this rescuing thought, these words came to me,
“The WHO changes lives from within the heart and that’s when transformation
is seen outwardly.
However when you point to the WHAT, you make it a transaction of sorts.
Your what distracts them further from ME, rather than closer.”
We don’t realize that our collective notes of what we have been through are so good for a handful of people. They will even keep going with great tools to “succeed” and yet The Almighty GOD wants them to know HIM so HE can speak adoption, sonship and daughtership to them. Knowing HIM as Father will cause them to see what they went through in life is not the focus or the fix. Instead it’s knowing that their Father was and is with them to show how HE wants to make a way when there seems to be no way.
He makes a way to forgive when there seems to be no way; He makes a way to train us to be intercessors for those who hurt us. Being intertwined with HIM causes HIS compassionate love to bleed through and permeate our very lives to be an echoing Advocate to plead for the lives of those who are destined for deserved damnation.
We soon find out God’s arm is not too short for any of our difficult mishaps, our side swiped surprises or our crushed dreams that have left us devastated. Those moments of not only feeling abandoned by those we wanted to love us, but even feeling abandoned by our own dreams.
Here’s a look back on a great revelation captured on my YouTube channel on August 24, 2020:
