“You’re thinking too small!” Thats what the Lord spoke to me as we drove home from church on Sunday. I asked for a point of reference and He directed me to look around me. So I took another look all around and again I heard, “You’re thinking too small!” So I asked that He open the eyes of my understanding and help me to see what he was trying to show me.
Suddenly I knew it wasn’t what I saw in the natural that he was referring to, it was what I saw in the Spirit realm. Isaiah 55:8-11 CEV says: “The Lord says:“My thoughts and my ways are not like yours. Just as the heavens are higher than the earth, my thoughts and my ways are higher than yours. Rain and snow fall from the sky. But they don’t return without watering the earth that produces seeds to plant and grain to eat. That’s how it is with my words. They don’t return to me without doing everything I send them to do.”
I need to think like God does and not allow the smallness of my natural view to stunt me from all God has for me. If I can’t see it in the spiritual realm, it will never manifest in the natural realm. I may not understand how it works, but it’s how God does things so I know it works. Like Elisha, I need to see the fiery angel chariots on the hills of deliverance rather than the natural enemies that surround me.
So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. Matthew 21:21. It’s having faith in the God who is able, thinking like God, operating as He created us to.
Father, I trade my eye sight for yours. I trade my vantage point for yours. You are indeed higher and mightier than anything that I face in the natural. Everything I need is in your Word and I will focus on what is in your realm and not mine. I trade my words for your Words, for they are life and health to me. Others may not understand me, but I seek to please you by becoming more and more like you each day. You’ve called me to come up higher, to leave the world behind, so I come. Into your arms, I come. Into your Word, I come. Into your deep and everlasting love, I come. In your grace I will make my home. Make me more like you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
