The deep waters – our world trembles with each wave that washes over us. Our lives are disrupted. We are being deconstructed. What was built up within us in religion is coming down. Jesus Himself is bringing it down. We are imploding from within. It seems we are unable to comprehend the simplicity in Christ. We want more. More of this and more of that – forever chasing new things, new revelation, forsaking the deep well of Jesus Christ.
So used to being hand fed on movements, we are not used to feeding ourselves, trusting Holy Spirit to lead and guide us in the Way in Christ.
We got comfortable being in the mix, in the system, whether that system was a constant stream of prophetic conferences or a church/denomination that dictated a norm rather than show us the WAY – a way of adventure and creativity in Holy Spirit. The church at large is in a sad state. The solution? Return to Jesus. Many lost their first love. Jesus calls and woos them back to Him.
He watches. He waits and observes from the outside looking in. So few actually notice Him. He looks through the window with a desire to be our all in all. How much do we settle for so much less?
Some beautiful poetic expression below.
The voice of my beloved! Behold, he comes
leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills.
9 My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag. Behold, he stands behind our wall;
He is looking through the windows, gazing through the lattice.
10 My beloved spoke, and said to me: “Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
(Song of Songs 2:8-10 NKJV)
This inner deconstruction of our lives brings down all our idols. And, there are many.
Why? So that our focus is purified to look into His eyes, to catch His gaze, to reflect His glory,. To BE the creative expression of Christ in the earth.
