God messes with our heads, to get to the heart of the matter…connecting His heart with ours and also with each other!
I have found this to be true, over and over again…
In terms of the stories in the Bible, it doesn’t take long to realize, that if we read it with only our ‘’conscious’’ mind, we really do find ourselves losing our mind very quickly..because without ‘’suspending’’ our conscious mind for a moment or two, we just would not get any of what He is actually saying.
Just a couple of snippets we read:
His Ways are higher than our ways and also that we have the mind of Christ. We are here on earth, yet seated with Christ in Heavenly places.
The weapons of our warfare are not of this world.
Not to mention stories of people that where so weak, washed out and wicked yet God used them to make Himself known.
He had a fish swallow a man.
A donkey speak to a prophet.
Parted the Red Sea, so the Israelite’s could walk on dry land.
Whittled an army down from 30,000 to 300 to win a war.
A women, a virgin, give birth to God.
A carpenter from no where (Nazareth) to be King of the Jews, crucified and rise from the dead.
People of no education saw Him resurrected and testified, with signs and wonders, in the Power of Christ.
How does the Bible make reasonable sense?
I have prayed, at times and more and more often:
“Help us Lord to be unreason-able! To have the ability to stop reasoning and listen to what you are really saying”….and this is what I hear:
“Peace, be still.”
“I Love you with an everlasting Love.”
“I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
“Come to me all you who are weary and I will give you rest.”
“To him who overcomes, I will give to sit with me on my throne”
There is so much more to hear…but that’s a start.
What are you hearing?
URLOVD immensely intimately!
