The Greater One!

Triumphant Victorious Reminders

 "Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world."
~ I John 4:4 ~                                                                                                             
 There are so many people who truly desire to enjoy their life.  With that said, I believe I saw more people enjoying life this week than ever before.  

This past week I had the honor of meeting this amazing couple who are incredible celebrators of life within people that they not only appreciate from afar, they also desire to nurture, support, surround and be surrounded by such.  They have this beautiful ability to see the potential of excellence within those they nurture and have this thriving desire to pull out the beautiful display that is within each of them.

Although very sadly they do not confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, I was humbled by such a gift that God has placed within them; an ability to see past faults and see strength.   They are incredibly moved by 'vision' not by mere 'sight'.

With this amazing conviction, I was amazed by their spirit, not yet been made new by God's Spirit, provoked this very thought, "How much more should I as a believer in this Great God, be displaying such celebration and doing so much more?"  Would I begin to see a great outpouring of God's Spirit upon all flesh when I begin to see with God's Vision versus my mere sight?

What I know for sure is that I have been led by my eye sight for way too long.  This way of seeing is straining and causes me to grow tired, resulting in an unstable mindset.  It's tiring, as it causes me to waver and misplace my trust in people versus the CREATOR of ALL; Almighty God, revealed by Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit as I am triumphantly reminded, "Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world!"
