It would behoove you to read Part one of ‘The Ending of 2015… Is The Start of 2016’ that being said let’s move on to where we desire and need to be in 2016?
We left off with God is always making things new, Revelation 21:5. He is a God of Perfection. He rights the wrongs in our lives and it takes the time, which translate to the process.
I said previously, I don’t throw people away. I let them hang on till they let go unless God tells me to let them go. Why? I studied art. The creation of any masterpiece begins with a thought, which is replicated in some form of medium to be the image of the original thought. Take for example an oil painting. You have the preparation gathering all the materials, and then placing that thought onto the canvas of the artist choice. For me there was a communication from my creation or painting which made me adjust what I was creating. Some colors didn’t’ work well together so I would have to add or take away pigment or brush. The canvas spoke back to me and I answered with more or less color, changing brush strokes, defining definition, more or less shading or whatever it needed to look like the original thought. You get the picture. The Painter was in control not the painting. The painting belonged to the Painter.
This is why I don’t get rid of people in my life. It’s God’s decision. People will bring out the best or worst in you and vice versa. They might be in your life to refine some of those crude ways of yours. They could be in your life to toughen up those unusual soft parts, the underbelly, so you can save someone’s life or your own. You might need them ten years from now but you cast them aside or out before the need presented them to you. You didn’t let the relationship mature, or set, allowing time, the process making you and them perfect. Now you are flawed and they are broken. Due season has come and you are left wanting… Remember it’s the Painter’s discretion when to blend, when to add or when to take away. The Painter is the one with the best vantage point of sight. He stands back and looks at the painting. He judges. The image can’t judge. It’s an image it’s void of the substance or the original thought. That’s why some people are seasonal they just didn’t blend well.
I also said I repelled a lot of people. I just don’t fit in with misery. My love, overly joyousness, enthusiastic, optimistic disposition contradicts their self-loathing, discontent, mean attitudes and prideful dispositions. Why? God, the Painter said I was made in His Image, after His Kind. What image or Kind is that?
Genesis 1:26-28 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Then God said, “Let Us (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) make man in Our image, according to Our likeness [not physical, but a spiritual personality and moral likeness]; and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the cattle, and over the entire earth, and over everything that creeps and crawls on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 And God blessed them [granting them certain authority] and said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subjugate it [putting it under your power]; and rule over (dominate) the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and every living thing that moves upon the earth.”
In Genesis One verses one through three we see the beginnings of the image of God.
Genesis 1:1-3 King James Version (KJV)
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
In verse one above we See God is a Creator. Verse two God is a Spirit. Verse three God responds, speaks positive change into His situation or creation (like the Painter and His painting) with corresponding results. So, you are a creative spirit with the ability to respond positively to your situation evoking change, revelation, clarity in your life and the lives of others.
This is why God cares more about how you respond to any given situation than what the situation is or doing to you. He can handle what is being done to you.
Psalm 55:22 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Cast your burden on the Lord [release it] and He will sustain and uphold you;
He will never allow the righteous to be shaken (slip, fall, fail).
You are made in God’s Image the situation shouldn’t break you it should make you. The earth being dark and void didn’t break God. He said what He wanted and He received it!!! Some of you have spoken the destruction that has destroyed you and you are still speaking it today. It has left you sick. You see when you squeeze an orange you get orange juice. It stands to reason if you squeeze a Christian you should get Christ. You are where you are because you didn’t speak what you wanted you spoke what was there. You are continuously having and living what you don’t want because you are saying what you don’t want.
The other Image of God is found in 1 John Chapter Four.
1 John 4:8 Amplified Bible (AMP)
The one who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love. [He is the originator of love, and it is an enduring attribute of His nature.]
God moves and does everything out of Love because He is Love. .. To be continued…
God is Love, Love Covers and Conquers It All…
