This passage has such power to it. This scripture is all about honor. It’s brings us back to the central truth and reality that despite what circumstances may be – GOD IS GOOD! It brings us back to right thinking.
To have a renewed mind is to have divine perspective.
When you are in His Presence, and understand that you are seated in Christ, your situation may not change, but you change. So does your view.
I remember years ago receiving an unexpected bill at the church I was pastoring. The bill was a very large tax bill with an immediately deadline. Needless to say, this was not only shocking, but stressed me out completely! After whining and complaining for a few minutes I went into my office and shut myself in. In that moment the Lord captured my heart and spoke to my spirit. I heard Him speak these simple words, “I thought this was My church? Am I not King?”
I immediately fell on my knees in repentance and the understanding that I had lost perspective. Believe it or not, the very next day a check for the amount of the tax bill came in! God gave me a clear reminder that the church is His church and He is King.
When you are in His presence you don’t see giants, you see victory.
This does not mean that you become blind to the giant or out of touch with natural realities. The honest truth is that when you are in His presence your perspective gets clearer and problems begin to shrink to their proper size.
As disciples of Jesus Christ we need to learn to host the presence of God rather than live in momentary highs.
Jesus did everything that He did as a man yielded to God. You and I are designed to live in that same glory. Do not lower the Word of God to your level of experience, nor allow what you don’t understand to offend you. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). What changes in His presence is our understanding of His ways.
Don’t put your faith in temporal conditions. Put your faith in unconditional love.
The Father loves it when His kids want to hang out with Him and do what He does!
