“My daughter, you’re thinking too small.”
“Father, I don’t understand what you’re saying.” I asked for a point of reference and He directed me to look around. I looked all around me and again I heard, “You’re thinking too small! I created you to do impossible things and you’re only thinking possible.”
Even in seeing the natural realm, all that God created is enough to blow my mind. That same God was telling me I was thinking too small. Wait, there’s more? 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 just what I saw in the natural that He was referring to, it was what I saw in the Spirit realm. Things I don’t yet see will be.
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.”
It’s my capacity to create that I wasn’t getting. I was made in the image and likeness of God and 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.
Like Elisha, I need to see the fiery angel chariots on the hills of deliverance rather than the natural enemies that surround me. I need to see my debt canceled, my body whole, all my needs met with plenty more to put in store. I need to expand my thinking to be more like my Father’s, that nothing is impossible for me, because Christ is in me!
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.
