TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
It’s time to hike up higher and see the view from God’s perspective. He is ready to show you His heart in the matter that you are seeking Him about, so rise up!
JESUS IS THE ROCK
According to 2 Samuel, we Christians possess a God-given ability to climb out of whatever mental mess we find ourselves in.
He makes my feet like the feet of deer, And sets me on my high places. – 2 Samuel 22:34
Psalms 61:1-2 takes this a step further.
Hear my cry, O God; Attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
When David says that he will cry out to God from “the ends of the world,” he’s not talking about a location. The translation should be “at the end of my rope.” You see, your ability to find God when you are at the end of your rope, or your “wits end,” is based upon your ability to seek Him when you’re at wits end in that mess.
Most of us get frustrated, throw a fit or turn away from God when the world crashes down around us. We forget that Jesus said at His ascension – or rising up – that He would be with us to “the ends of the earth,” or the end of our rope. He is the “rock that is higher than I” that David was talking about.
Jesus said in Matthew 16:18-19 that He was building His church not on Peter himself, but on the rock of revelation knowledge God downloaded to Peter. Therefore, you and I have access to a mental download from the mind of Christ to our minds. If you can see things the way God sees them, you will not be overwhelmed.
It is the “view from above” from that “rock that is higher than I” that David was referring to. Jesus has that view from the top and will give it to you right now if you give your mind to Him concerning whatever is overwhelming you. Submit your mind to Christ. It is the key to having true mental victory!
When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. – Psalms 61:1-2
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO UNDERSTAND THAT PAST, PRESENT OR FUTURE, GOD WANTS TO TURN YOUR MESS INTO A MESSAGE THAT WILL HELP AND HEAL YOU WHEN YOU’RE AT THE END OF YOUR ROPE.
