1 John 3:2 -- "Beloved, now are we the sons of God......"
We will not become the sons of God when we get to heaven. We are sons of God now. If we aren't sons of God here, we won't make it to heaven.
We must have within us the image that God has of us: then we will be enlightened and see that God's fullness will dwell in us as we keep His Word.
Job 3:25 -- "For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me."
The words we speak create: (1) images either of faith-based on the authority of God's Word or(2) fear based on our failure to believe and act on God's Word. Just as faith in God's word gives substance to things hoped for (desired), on the other hand, fear gives substance to things not desired.
The point is that every circumstance or situation life is subject to change if we are consistent to do what Jesus said in Mark 11:23,24; Luke 17:6; and John 15:7. But on the other hand, if we speak words of doubt, fear, and unbelief, we may establish bad situations and circumstances in our life forever.
Ephesians 4:29 -- "...Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers."
I minister others into Christ, disciple them, and equip them to disciple others.
As I sit at the feet of Jesus I labor for the meat that He gives me which endures unto everlasting life.
I am becoming a passenger in the vehicle of His will, a vehicle in which He Himself is both captain and navigator.
Ephesians 3:20 - "Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us."
Out of the box thinking realizes there is no box. You are the limitless PURPOSE and MANIFESTATION of God's glory, released into the earth with the same anointing, mission, and message Jesus had over 2,000 years ago.
You now live beyond the dimension of needing your needs met, and you live in that kingdom dimension of being the conduit of blessing for others.
Out of the box thinking and living eliminates both the box and the notions of religious confinement that the box created. You now understand that the glory that was on Jesus is now on you...so you are God's glory walking throughout the earth called on assignment to be the answer to someone else's question and the breakthrough for someone else's bondage.
"Behold, you are fair, my love! behold, you are fair! You have dove's eyes." - Song of Solomon 1:15 "But seek you first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you." - Matthew 6:33
If we will respond and seek the Lord above all of the other pressures and demands on our time, and tell Him that we desire Him with "a single eye," He will then respond and say to us, "Behold, you are fair, you have dove's eyes." Now, we are ready to be led into a further experience of union with Jesus in the outworking of His Kingdom purposes upon the earth.
Today, the Lord is seeking those who are willing to be reduced to having this singleness of vision.
