And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
The things of God, including the promises for our lives, must be viewed through the Spirit. What God has promised to us is already done and therefore, our challenge is to view our circumstances beyond our present reality, what is to that which should be and act accordingly. Whatever our circumstances may be we must Embrace them in the Spirit otherwise the challenges and the present time of our reality loom large causing us to feel overwhelmed, defeated, and deflated in that which we believe should be. To get above the fray of the challenges and present times in which we exist requires us to operate in the Spirit. Remember, when God created us He did so in His likeness and as a result blew into us His breath, wind, of life and as a result we became living souls. We are only alive and can live in the Spirit, as God is Spirit, operating within us. Embrace the Spirit of God and Catch The Wind of His Spirit and flow, despite and in spite of the realties of your experiences, in that which should be as promised by God. Jesus taught by way of parables not to confuse but instead to model living in the Spirit, getting beyond what appears to insightful opportunities through the Spirit in order to operate and possess the promises of God. Seeing our lived experiences through the Spirit, we receive the wisdom, insightfulness of God, to act and possess what God has promised in our circumstances. Embrace and Catch The Wind of God’s Spirit, flowing beyond what is to that which should be as promised and prepared by God, it is your gift, receive and operate in it!
