God doesn’t reveal you to destroy you, but to create in you a (new creature) vision.
God doesn’t reveal you to disarm you, but to authorize you.
God doesn’t reveal you to embarrass you, but to enable you.
God doesn’t reveal you to deflate you, but to empower you.
God doesn’t reveal you to deter you, but to compel you.
God doesn’t reveal you to stop you, but to commission you.
God reveals you to refine you.
Alone with God you learn to quiet your spirit and listen to the Holy Spirit
The 1st reason that God reveals Himself to you, is so that you will get to know Him.
The 2nd reason that God reveals Himself to you is so that you will get to know your self.
The first principle of power is:
Making a decision to spend time alone with God.
And by getting to know God and getting to know your identity in Christ all power and spiritual blessings are opened up to you.
2 Timothy 1:7
7. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
God Thinking notes:
Stretching your faith to include believing everything that God has said.
Making a deliberate, firm and irreversible decision about your relationship with God, upon hearing or reading the Word of God, as moved by the unction of the Holy Spirit.
Speaking into your circumstances and situations words of promise (God’s promises).
Responding in a time sensitive response to a call from God.
Someone is dealing with something that needs immediate attention. God is standing at the door of your heart awaiting a yes answer to the question that God asked of you last week.
There is peace in making a decision. Are you ready to go into the presence of God? Now is the acceptable time."
