“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
I never cease to be amazed by the uniqueness of God. He is all omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent. All seeing, knowing, powerful and everywhere, all at the same time. His love for mankind is so great that He sent His beloved Son, Jesus, as a sacrifice to bear the weight of the world’s sin. Yet, that love is so individual, so special to ‘each one of us’. The deeper the relationship, the greater the revelation we will have of that love. Our lives will then become a fountain, an abundance of living water overflowing to those around us, a fountain that will never run dry. This whole chapter speaks of an invitaion to those who are thirsty, culminating to when Christ’s new order will be manifest on this earth.
Dear friends, I want to encourage you, do not become weary in doing good, and pray like you have never prayed before! We only need to observe world events to know that the time is short. So, let us use our time wisely. Let us be Kingdom minded at all times, empowered by the fullness of His Spirit.
I personally feel a little sad that the concept of church today is so sophisticated. Modern technology had brought video screens, the internet and plush buildings. The early church was so simplistic. In Acts we read that the believers were all together and shared everything. No-one was in need, they were all one in heart and mind, and many wonders and miraculous signs were performed. They devoted themselves to prayer and the breaking of bread.
Let’s get back to basics! We must take the church to the market place, and each day pray for folks as the need and opportunity arises. The Lord is changing lives, bringing healing and restoration in wonderful ways. As the enemy throws everything at us to wear us down we rejoice because God is on the move, He is faithful, and something wonderful is about to break in the spiritual realm.
