(Part 14 – Day 5 Layers of Meaning)
This last portion of the cycle around the tree is a season of overcoming. (Reddish brown section to left) Gradual baby steps lead to giant leaps of faith. After a time of hiddenness and molding this season feels uncertain. You desire to step out but something has changed in you along the way. You have traded in being your own boss and are now looking to God for His perfect will and timing in everything. You have learned that when He is the initiator there is supernatural reward. You’re no longer satisfied in what you alone can accomplish. When God is working, waves of exponential return flood in one after another. You’re no longer asking What can I do to succeed. Your gaze has widened to What is God up to and What is my part?
(Part 13 – Day 5 Layers of Meaning)
If you pursue God He will show up…..up close and personal. He will sweep in and completely rock your world by His personal expression of love for you. For some reason sometimes we think the God of the Universe is too busy for us; He’s rotating the globe, expanding the universe, dealing with nations and people groups. How could He have time for me? For some reason we forget that the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead lives in us. Christ dwells in our hearts. He will never leave us nor forsake us. The Kingdom of God is within. He has all the time in the world just for you.
(Part 12 – Day 5 Layers of Meaning)
Be prepared for a mind shift. The way into the Kingdom of Heaven is with the mind of a child. One of the first things you’ll discover is the way Up into God is actually down. In order for Him to fill you and awaken you with His Spirit, your soul has to be dethroned. Get ready for war but in this case the appropriate response is surrender. You’ll be amazed at how you want to believe and to allow Jesus to be Lord in your life but for some reason your body and soul seem to have a mind of their own. In some ways they do….years of habit, generational behaviors, selfishness, fear… You’re not alone, we all have it. You will go through a season of war in which part of you is fighting against yourself.
I have taken a short break from writing on Transformation to focus all of my energy praying for an 8 year old girl from my church who has Stage IV cancer. Her name is Ellie Potvin. A group of us went to her home last week to pray for her healing and God was ever present. The King of Glory came to visit and left a miraculous sign of His time with us. Ellie had a sprinkling of gold dust on her head and hands. In the sweet innocence of a child she looked at her palms and said excitingly, “Glitter!” Others in the room discovered they also had this glitter in the palms of their hands. You can follow her story on her Caring Bridge site, scroll down to the May 22 entry to read about the gold dust:
Our God is a healer and no disease is too much for Him. Join with me in prayer for Ellie. We believe in miracles and know the sweet perfect love of God for his child. Let today be the day of the miraculous healing in Jesus’ name!
