Problem Solving

Already Done!

Something we often say when yet another problem assails our lives is,

“There’s always something!”

But, here’s some good news, for a change!

Adding just two words can make a whole difference…

To overcome

So now, we have a brand-new deal, “There’s always something… to overcome.”

But how can we change something that seems so unchangeable? There’ll always be problems in this world. They can’t just go away! Can they?

No, but they are all totally surmountable. Why? Because Jesus has already achieved victory over every hardship this life throws at us.

He said, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

Yes, there will be trouble ahead but as we align to Christ, a process of victory over it is assured because he’s already gone ahead of us and made it possible.

Hard to believe. But it’s true!

Now, every challenge in life can be overcome.

Are you ready to give it a go today?

Go on..it’s already done!

Majority Thinking

The only one! 🙁

Christ followers can often feel an ‘earthly minority’ in their daily lives. This is a lonely place to be.

But the truth is that “the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4)

You with God are a ‘heavenly majority’!

One day the servant of Elisha was terrified of what he naturally saw as a majority army against them. But Elisha asked the Lord to reassure him by opening his spiritual eyes and show him the heavenly majority in their favour.

“The Lord opened his eyes. He looked and saw…” (2 Kings 6:17)

If you are living a ‘minority life’ right now, take time aside with God. Enjoy His Presence, and include this prayer.

‘Lord, please open my spiritual eyes so I too can see my majority in heaven.’

No longer alone. 😆
Supernatural Work Life

Stay Connected

“If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit.” (John 15:5)

It’s just a one-dimensional working life if we only rely on skills, qualifications and experience.

Connected to Christ during our working day brings us infinite possibilities from heaven, our spiritual home.

“God is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.”
(Ephesians 3:20)
Faith Pioneering, Kingdom Business

Pioneers Don’t Look Back

If we are going somewhere we haven’t been before, the likelihood is we’ll need to do things we’ve not done before. So, looking back at old ways won’t help at all. It brought paralysis to Lot’s wife!

Jesus, the pioneer and perfector of the Christian faith didn’t even look back to the good things.

“He [Jesus] did not devise a master plan for His destiny based on
previously successful works and strategies;
He received His destiny by cultivating the Master relationship based on love.”

This Critical Perspective is crucial for the faith pioneering journey and includes 3 essential states in this order:

  1. Intimacy
  2. Presence
  3. Alignment

Without them we’re stuck, and the only way is back, which is an unfulfilling prospect.

So, let’s keep looking forward to fulfil our pioneering call

Beyond Limits

When faith is pushed to the limit of our endurance and we keep going, in a humbled state of ‘not I but Christ’ (having nothing left to give) we enter God’s unlimited sphere.

Here we break the ‘sound barrier like a super-sonic jet’ and smoothly accelerate forward powered by His mighty Wind.

God's Presence, Kingdom revival

Top Priority

“Walk in my presence and be thou perfect.”

God’s presence is indispensable for bringing the culture of heaven
to our places of influence.

We cannot achieve the all-important kingdom perspective without the King!

Therefore its cultivation with Him should be our top priority at all times.

Prayer of the heart alone (not of the head or understanding) 
brings us into God’s presence, and maintained without interruption 

This is the stuff of personal, regional, national
and international revival, no less!

“The consciousness of God is the spirit of revival”

Colossal Wonders

Worldly systems are huge and oppressive when I use my reason or smallness of mind. But with my spiritual senses* they shrink, as I am set free into the colossal wonders of Christ’s unlimited higher reality.

God “hates confined spaces”

When I allow the world to crowd in all I see is problems. It’s the biggest thing, like a dark cloud over my whole life. But when I allow God to ‘cover me’, He is all I sense, His unlimited eternal reality, vastly bigger than my earthly experience.
There I am immensely free.

I am limited on earth
But unlimited by heaven

2 Corinthians 3:17
* Did you know? We all have spiritual senses that match our 5 natural ones:
sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. These help us to perceive the natural and spiritual world around us. Ask Jesus to guide you into the spiritual wonders of His choosing for you today. Have fun!

Prophetic Poetry

Unlimited Increase

It’s not the noisy things we shout
That reflect God’s whereabouts.
But the small, quiet tones.
10%, that’s all we own.

Then God ‘writes’ His-story,
90% of the glory.
Unlimited increase,
Wonders unleashed.

“A small thing is a small thing,
but faithfulness in
the small things is a great thing.”
