“You don’t know, what you don’t know”, the first time I heard this statement I laughed. It just sounded odd. But it’s the most truthful statement ever. God said my people perish from a lack of knowledge – Hosea 4:6; so we need knowledge to ensure we do not perish. We need knowledge to ensure we know…!! Be encouraged.
Let’s recap our common journey. From the day of our birth to today, everything in our lives has a point of reference. Agreed?
Our lives are filled with valuable reference points and structure; time to wake, time to sleep, birthdays, Christmas, bank holidays, Sunday routine, Saturday routine, work whether at home or at an external location.
Then we accept Jesus into our lives and guess what we instinctively do? We add “human structures and references” to our Christian walk. Every time we experience a move of the Holy Spirit we map it and say – God works like this – reducing the Almighty God into our structure – ouch!!
Romans 12:2 we must “renew our minds” – oh man, how I hope you get this. As a non-spiritual human we need structure to make sense of everything going around us.
Now let’s think of God, before everything was. God is a spirit being, do you agree? Good. God exists outside of time, physical space and gravity, do you agree? Good.
When creating the earth and planets – how does God know where to place it? What structure is He placing creation within? I’m not mad, think about it. If we wanted to build a house, you can’t start with the roof down, gravity won’t allow it. Everything “we” do has a point of reverence. True?
Our God did everything with no reference points…!!
Now think. Healings has no reference point. Salvation by declaring sins and accepting Jesus the Christ, has no reference point. Baptism of the Holy Spirit has no reference point – remember what the men in Acts who heard unlearned men speak in their language say. They must be drunk – Acts 2:4 – this was their only reference point. Are you getting this?
How can this knowledge accelerate your spiritual life?
When in the “spirit” we are in God’s existence not our own; we must become comfortable being ‘reference-less’. You cannot find a reference for the power that created heaven and earth; that heals; that saves…it just, is what it is…!!
Living each moment of each hour of each day through the Holy Spirit means we are living-reference-points. Scary I know.
Jesus told us “the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you” – John 14:26.
This promise is simply mind blowing.
Choose to rely on the the Holy Spirit to teach you how to exist in the spirit – declaring things to be on earth as it is in heaven. Choose to accept there’s no fixed structure or reference points in the Spirit.
What now? You’re a spirit human…make stuff happen – change the world – like right now…!! Be encouraged.
