I’ve spent a previous couple of weeks recalibrating my focus and compass. Why? Because in the midst of chaos and the battle of voices, I find it necessary to make certain I am focused on God – on His ways and plans in the midst of the crazy! The battle is intense, and in my desire to actually understand the battle and focus my response, I had to question “what’s my part”? I can’t do it all, so help me stay centered and focused on the part I have to play. I don’t want to be swinging at the pinata in hopes I might hit something! Instead, I want to recognize what the Holy Spirit is saying to me and calling me to do.
It’s so important that we recognize this battle isn’t simply about an election, or who is President. Don’t get me wrong … this is the key component of the battle we are in at this very moment, but it doesn’t end there. For me, I have to understand the bigger picture of what is actually taking place. What (or who) is behind the chaos, the battle that is being so intensely fought? I have learned so much these past few years that has been transformational in the deep inner fabric of my existence. Things that have changed me, sharpened me, opened my understanding in ways I had no idea to even ask for. This ‘understanding’ is not simply in my head, but has become the very core of who I am and how I think. I’m talking about the ways I understand God that I previously had no idea about! My ideas of who God is were fashioned and shaped by a limited view of His actual ways. I say that to say, that we are not supposed to stay focused simply on church inside the building, evangelism, healing, etc. but rather on the BIGGER picture of Who God is and how He works! How are we to know Him and partner with Him for His name to be known and glorified throughout the earth?
I have never been much for studying. I’m a quick learner, so I always preferred to be shown what to do and how to do it, because once I saw it … I got it! I have always needed an understanding (comprehension) of the situation in order to decide whether or not I believed so that I could then actively engage or pursue an outcome. With God, it happens a bit differently though. This understanding or comprehension comes in the form of our spiritual eyes, not our natural minds, being opened or enlightened through revelation. It is by the Word and the Spirit working in tandem within us to align our hearts and thinking to the ways of God. Once we ‘get it’ on the inside, then the Holy Spirit begins to formulate the thought processes of comprehension so we know that we KNOW it from the inside out! This is called transformation!
I pray that the Father of glory, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would impart to you the riches of the Spirit of wisdom and the Spirit of revelation to know him through your deepening intimacy with him. I pray that the light of God will illuminate the eyes of your imagination, flooding you with light until you experience the full revelation of the hope of his calling—that is, the wealth of God’s glorious inheritances that he finds in us, his holy ones! Eph 1:17-18 (TPT)
During these past months of limited engagement with the world due to the so-called COVID lockdowns, closures, and restrictions, the Holy Spirit has taken me to places I previously had no interest or comprehension of! Not because I was rebellious, but simply because I didn’t understand. The places of understanding how His ways actually function governmentally in this world in which we live. Understanding how His governmental ways are meant to mesh with our ways of life, breath, and purpose! It’s not about politics, per se, it’s about the governmental ways of the Kingdom of God and how we are called to function within that kingdom. Understanding what His plans for this world actually really look like! Somehow step-by-step the Holy Spirit has led me to people, teaching, and paradigm-shifting layers of insight to transformationally align my understanding. Realities that have drastically changed the way I view things. Really more about how I comprehend things from Heaven’s perspective in ways I had not previously understood. All of this to say, that for me, God has used Ron’s death, followed by my return to US soil, and then the COVID times as opportunities to be radically changed, recalibrated, and focused in a way that perhaps without all of the above, would not have happened!
