God Thinking LIII - Getting Beyond Your Self 7

"It is in God’s intervention into the events of life that we come to recognize how fragile we are and how utterly dependent we are on our heavenly Father.
Who wants to be sick?
Who has never been sick?
Does God allow sickness in His saints?
God does not bring sickness.  Sickness is from the fall, but God does allow sickness and through it, whatever it is, God is just as there and just as concerned and just as Holy and just as righteous and just as powerful and just as actively involved as when you are well.
God does allow sickness, but in that sickness God is there equipping you and strengthening you in your weakness, revealing an attribute of God, not easily recognized when all is well.
It’s time lost if you don’t see God in it.  But if you do see God in it.................
You don’t choose the fire.
You don’t choose to be sick.
You don’t choose trouble - But when they come, you must see God in it, so that you won’t have to go through it alone.
It is time to take a quantum leap from where you were spiritually to a new level of awareness of God’s Holy presence.
You have grown (in the amount of power you are able to activate at any given moment.)  It was a miracle but God showed you favor and lifted you up and in some cases, delivered you.

In some, God built you up and gave you a confidence  to overcome things in your life, that you had not felt for years, or ever.

In some, God revealed His directive for your life, either for the day or the week or the future.

In another Jesus revealed Himself sitting on His throne, looking at you with a smile and favor. 

God is pleased that we gather together to praise Him and worship Him - to adore Him - to talk about Him and to talk to Him.  God Thinking works. 

You have grown tremendously.

Inside you have sensed God’s presence.

You sense that life is not futile, but beautiful.

You sense that you have purpose, at any age. 

You have tasted of the Holiness of God and you like it.
God is so ready to make something great happen through you.  This is a prophetic word for you.  Are you ready to believe God to do through you what you never could imagine?"
