Daily Read – Isaiah 54:1-57:14; Ephesians 6:1-24, Psalm 70:1-5; Proverbs 24:8
"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," says the Lord.
"For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts
Come up higher and your thoughts and ways will begin to change in accordance to My will. An earth bound believer remains stuck in the old ways of thinking unable to soar into My higher ways. Surrender your ways
, and allow My ways
to lift you up into heavenly realms where you will walk a life unhindered.
From this place, prayer and warfare take on a completely new light. You will perceive clearly that the weapons of your warfare are not carnal, but mighty! The natural mind cannot grasp this revelation, but your spirit receives it. The armor and weaponry that I implement in battle are very different from that which is used in the earth realm. My ways are not confined to the boundaries set in the natural realm. In fact, My ways will turn the natural upside down!
Truth is the belt that girds your waist, for out of your belly flows living waters of My truth. Righteousness guards and shields your chest where your heart, your center most part of your mind, will, and emotions reside. The good news of peace covers your feet, leading and guiding you every step in this day. Faith and trust in Me will shield you from every lie, deception, and fiery dart from the enemy. As you raise My Word declaring it in every situation, a sword is actually wielded doing much damage to darkness in the unseen spirit realm. My helmet of salvation fully protects your head, brain and thought life. I have provided all of this because you are My redeemed, blood washed Bride.
You ask Me, "If this is all mine, why do I still struggle with so much!"
Again, My ways and thoughts are not your ways and thoughts. You are perceiving things through the eyes of the flesh and not through the eyes of the Spirit. Surrender to My ways, lay down your ways and you will come up higher.
Lord Jesus, I want Your thoughts and ways to be my thoughts and ways. I have been tied down and held back from experiencing true freedom. Circumstances in my life have clouded and blurred my perception of Your truth. I pray for the wind of the Holy Spirit to come and blow the clouds from my mind. I pray that every tie that keeps me earthbound would be severed and loosed. I want to live in the high place. I want to live, and move, and have my being in the Spirit.
You were created to soar!
