Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. Titus 1: 15

The way people see life and others is generally coloured by who they are: – their character, experiences, choices et al. Thus, you find that it is easy to interpret another’s actions and words through self-knowledge i.e. who you are.

Our purity or otherwise depends on our source, knowing our roots and drawing on it. A branch draws its existence from its roots. Children of God are the branches of the True Vine – Christ Jesus.

As children of God, vessels here on earth for His glory, there is a better and higher way through which we should see and interpret people and circumstances. It is the God way – how He sees. Through His eyes if I may use that phrase. This calls for tolerance (I am sure still growing in this), patience. It demands we remember the weak and the strong be related to differently.

We are to take people out of the box we place them in. Boxes in our minds, built by our idiosyncrasies, understanding, knowledge and experiences.

Daily renewal of our mind with God’s word is the antidote for seeing people through who we are. For it shows us who we are, we are images of Christ Jesus, siblings with God the Son, His workmanship unto good works. Thus, the way He is, is our standard and blue print. The more we align with God, the more He increases in us and self-decreases. Then we would find it easier to see people, circumstances as He God sees them

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.

A friend and I got into a friendly banter on blackberry messenger chat this morning. Had requested that she bring African salad for me to rehearsals on Saturday by 7am, to which she said impossible.

Told her there’s no such thing as impossible, and she said otherwise. As we bantered, she then stated it exists in her dictionary as it is impossible to serve the devil.

As i told her that it was a possibility but one we do not wish to attain, she then listed impossibilities: bow to the devil, road prostitution, murder. I then requested she define murder and she said taking another’s life willingly.

At this point everything had taken on a different view point for me. It was no longer about the banter, but about how I saw things. I shared murder as defined by Matthew 5:22. The question at that point to me was: whose definition are you using?

You see as children of God, we are called to live for Him, His purpose. As His ambassadors our marching orders are based on what obtains in heaven. For we are in this world but not of it. We are sons of God because we are led by the Spirit.

For who defines our words, shapes our choices, actions and invariably our lives. How we see defines how we receive and how we get. So the real question regarding my everyday seconds is an expression of whose definition I am guided by.

Today with each choice and decision you make, remember the definer determines your future.

Time and again I am reminded that the word of God is life, it is much more than words. It is something that can be seen and in some cases felt as well.

Before the Word became flesh and dwelt amongst us, men had begun seeing words even as their Father first saw words. From the law of first mention we knew that God spoke and then He saw all He spoke. It is recorded that it was good.

God saw His words, Saul was shown God’s words, Isaiah, Micah, Jeremiah, the disciples and apostles all saw God’s words. Question: have you seen God’s words? Do you see it regularly? May I pause here and state: all God has spoken to you when you see it, it will be good.

God has given us patterns in His word, first with Himself and then with a host of other witnesses that His words should be seen not by a select few but by all. For we who say we have been called by Him when we see His words to us it is for good. To those who live unto their flesh when they see His words it for harm.

Spend time in God’s word, spend time with God’s word, seeing God’s word should not be a luxury but a life style. For God’s words can be seen and are for good.
