SPRING FORTH NOW - DAILY MEDITATION
Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
The natural position for us all is to be comfortable where we are and only to make adjustments when absolutely necessary, less adjustments the better. It is only when our lives have been upended as a result of a major challenge in which we struggle to make adjustments and only if absolutely necessary and does not require much sacrifice and/or suffering on our part. Because of our default position of comfortability and/or adjustments only when absolutely necessary, our mind, thought life, directs our actions accordingly, challenging any move or action that is fuel by faith and not by sight. As long as our minds, thought life are more comfortable with maintaining and/or surviving we will act accordingly. However, if you or I decide, we choose to Elevate our thinking to a place in which we just do not maintain and/or survive but thrive and flourish in the promises of God, it will require acts of faith. When we Elevate our thought life, we are positioned to act, launch out into the deep, take risk and exercise our faith in that which should be. The incentive to launch out into the deep of our experiences toward the promises of God is fueled by an active faith in God’s promises supported by the wind of His Spirit. Therefore, as we are Elevated beyond the natural default positions to operate in the Spirit realm of God and His Kingdom, we are positioned to Catch The Wind of His Spirit. Our ascension to a higher plain has absolutely nothing to do with how right we are or how perfect we are but instead is rooted in our desire to “per-fect” our faith, actions in alignment with what God is doing with and through us toward the fulfillment of His promises. God’s mercy extends to us wherever we are so that we would be Elevated in His Spirit so that we may sit, exist in the high places of His promises, experiencing the fullness of His power operating in and over our lives!
