Thrusted Into A Kingdom Mindset

God is thrusting His people into a kingdom mindset.?With this He will be able have “four-corner/full-circle effectiveness” through our lives, in every direction. Get ready for what could be the shift of your lifetime and welcome it. The heavens and the earth will be affected, as will our horizontal efforts for the gospel toward others as His people embrace the change.
1. What Seems Loss is Actually Gain
Matthew 10:38-39
“And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.”
We are in a time where God is taking us into a place of what can seem like apparent loss, that is actually gain. There are things to let go of that you may embrace things that will advance you further. These are the kingdom ways that seem contradictory to the mind of man, but they propel us into greater freedom, glory and blessing in His Presence. Don’t be afraid to hold things loosely. It is all too easy for the mind that has been trained by religion to force things, try to control and manipulate to make something happen. The way of the Spirit is to hold loosely, abide in His Presence and allow God to keep that which is meant to be in place.
2. Tossing the Heavy to Carry the Light
Matthew 11:29-30
“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Many have carried the heavy loads that sound spiritual, look good to the natural eye, but are really distracting to the true purposes of God – even hindering His best from being realized. As it is with something that becomes “popular” in religious circles, the spiritual cliches of the day. Many are just copied with all the right words but have no true substance of life. Jesus had a way of just not being all that marketable. There was always the element of offense that would not make Him the best prospect for promotion. For example, everything was going great until He told everyone that His blood was the “true drink”. That just does not market well. Without true substance of God’s Presence everything becomes an oppressive heavy weight.
3. You Are Not Subtracting, But Adding & Multiplying
When God tells you to do something that seems like such a subtraction He is actually adding something to you in the spirit and possibly even in the natural. In the Kingdom, when we give we will receive. When we let go, the best will return to us in multiplied ways. When you let go of something you are giving God control of something, giving Him the ability to do something.
Luke 6:38
“Give, and it will be given to you:good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”
4. God Tears Up Boxes
Some are already experiencing God tearing up their box. This is a good thing. Right when you thought you had so much figured out He came to tear up your boxed thinking. God is just to expansive, big and amazing to get stuck in our boxed mindsets. He is reforming His people with a kingdom mindset, giving them His ways of doing things that are so far different than the way things have been done.
Ezekiel 47:3-5
“And when the man went out to the east with the line in his hand, he measured one thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the water came up to my ankles. Again he measured one thousand and brought me through the waters; the water came up to my knees. Again he measured one thousand and brought me through; the water came up to my waist. Again he measured one thousand, and it was a river that I could not cross; for the water was too deep, water in which one must swim, a river that could not be crossed.”
God wants to fill His people, His Church, with a fresh reality of His Presence. To do this He is having to change the framework of the minds of leaders to do things differently. It is not normal for the Presence of God to be absent in congregations. There will be some leaders and congregations that go on their entire lives never knowing the Presence of God. There are some that just tip-toe in the water, then others that dive in and swim.
There are some who have never experienced the tangible Presence of God that will be graced with the opportunity to come embracing the table of His Presence with a choice of yeah or nay. The ones who respond with a yes will then be challenged with the necessary changes.
People can pay a price for doing something noble not even knowing God. We pay the price for His Presence, to see His Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. Let this be our resolve.
5. Alignments That Advance
God is taking us into more effective routes. More can be accomplished when we have God directives concerning our alignments in relationships. What we are after is God exact blueprints for our lives that we walk in complete effectiveness in His eyes with power and breakthroughs. The Lord is bringing us into newness, freshness and completeness in the power of alignment that will open doors to majestic glorious strength advancing His Kingdom in our calls and spheres of influence. Be encouraged with this verse below.
Isaiah 40:27-31
“Have you not known? Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,
But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.”
6. Stand and Command
Don’t be?pushed back into a corner! ?Don’t be sympathetic to evil. Stand and command the revealed will of God to be established. ?For some, eyes need to be opened to see the plans of God so that they know what to command. ?God will put a command in your hand to execute. ?God did not put you here take up pew space, occupy for His Kingdom and glory until He returns.?
