Food for 1
For 5,000 and counting

Knowledge has a beautiful way of colouring ones’ sight. The power of knowledge. Beyond of God all things are possible to another level of I have been empowered to do way, way, much way beyond what I do.
He took
He looked to heaven
He blessed
He brake
He gave

For now, I still ponder: why 50?
You see if there was ever a PURPOSEFUL One that walked the face of this earth at some point – it was Him. Truly he is the One who has walked the face of this earth with steps ladened by purpose.
As He is – We are
AS He is – I am
As He is – I am

Not any less, no, same, equal, co-heirs, siblings…hallelujah!!!

Steps – purpose filled
Sight – coloured with knowledge of who I am.

You see nothing is ever truly not enough. A little is all that’s needed. For I have been blessed, to be fruitful, to multiply, to replenish, to subdue, to have dominion. That’s why the Lord can save whether by many or by a few. A number of conquests in the Old Testament do show He chose to triumph by a few.

The numbers were not to be deterrent but a statement to all. God in 1, God in 2, God with 1, God with 2, there is nothing and no one that can withstand.

To see as He sees, I need to seat more at His feet. You see the more I understand who I am in Him, the more I begin to fully live and function the way I ought.

So I shall check my sight through the washing of His words and allow enlightenment pull down every scale dark and dreary.

Or what woman who has 10 silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it? Luke 15: 8

If does loses one coin…
Have you lost anything – divine health, physical property, peace of mind, joy…

Does not light a lamp
Have you opened God’s word? You never know how practical for daily living the word is until you open it. It is the light we use to see, to know how to respond per time, how to act.

Sweep the house and search carefully…
Word study always does good. To study the scriptures is setting up oneself to be well knowledge, to be learned in ways beyond your imaginations.

So I ask have you lost anything lately? Is there a void you’ve tried to fill but not yet has satisfied?
Open the word, go to the bible…. Do come back so I can rejoice with you upon your finding it.

In the place where God has positioned you, you will always be an answer to someone’s question or confusion or have the solution needed for the situation. This brings to bear one key thing – it aint about you! Yea not the skill, not the giftings but it’s about Him… pointing men to Him.

For when we give expression to that which God has placed in us – men glorify God.Thus He has enjoined us to let our light so shine before men, that they may see our good deeds and praise our Father in heaven.

Pharaoh saw Joseph’s light and gave God glory, Israelites saw David’s light and gave God glory. Babylonian kings saw Daniel’s light and gave God the glory… from Genesis to Revelation the list is pretty long.

I dare to say that the “light” they all saw is the giving of expression to the skills and giftings in us which point men to the Awesomeness of God… when our skills is an answer, a solution, an interpretation to anthers questions, confusion and dream.

Over the past couple of weeks spanning into months, I’ve been learning about authority and obedience. It has been quite revealing to me I must say. The beauty though comes forth brightly as I live out my learning daily, not only at home but also at work. My normal reaction to certain circumstances, I’ve begun to question in the light of my new insight. Truly the entrance of the Word brings light. Where there is light, change and transformation are sure.

We learn each day is a popular saying which has taken on a new meaning or more or less become more real to me. With each aspect of authority and obedience i learn, there is an occasion almost immediately for me to put same in practice. Just as I have questions which seek for balance, the answers come. The word as concerns my ongoing learning is being made flesh in my day to day living.

You must agree with me, that the beauty of the theory (learning) is always in its practice (living). That is the function of living Word, that it be made alive in our day to day life. Grow from rhema into experiential knowledge. It is not enough to learn and thus know what the Word says. Rather in the living out of what we have learned we walk in line with God’s agenda. For He had said: follow me (learn of me) and I will make you (you’d live it out) fishers of men (my paraphrase of the verse).

As you learn, never fail or miss an opportunity to live same out, even in the course of learning.

There’s a lot suffering in the world. The hard reality hit me deeply this lovely morning. Breaking without a prior appointment into the beauty of the sheltered life I’ve always enjoyed.

Surely, it was for such as these, that Christ blood was shed. Yet the prince of darkness has beclouded their hearts to the light and life giving truth. Reading of their plight awakened the flood gates of my eyes. The solution is way beyond that. It s not enough for me to feel the affliction they bare. Good but not enough.

What can I do to show them the light that sees them as precious? Practical things that lets them know Someone cares. I could give of my time to pray for them, I could send my money to help alleviate the excruciating suffering; I could give of my comfort…these i could do. So I have to turn my “coulds” into “woulds”.

I am sure you might have come across such as these. What has been your response to them?

“The King will reply. “ I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me” Matthew 25:40

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save, what was lost. Luke 19:10
