The High Road
Let the mind of the Master be the master of your mind.
Pr 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
The mind of Christ, reveals, and thinks, the higher thoughts of God.
These often go radically different directions than all of our earthly learning, experience, and reasoning’s.
Gotta choose the high road, no matter what it looks like in the natural… Pr 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
This is the verse I have chosen to have inscribed upon my wedding band….
Trust and faith, creates pathways in the Holy Ghost, creative pathways into deeper places, spaces, mysteries unfolded, to our situations, hearts, and answers to each and every generation.
Let’s read one of my favorite verses (for I find myself often thirsty for what only the living God of heaven can give!)
Is 55:1 ¶ Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.
5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the LORD thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.
6 ¶ Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
So we see the higher thoughts of our God, found only in the mind of Christ, revealed through prayer, both in understanding, through seeking Him in His Word, and in mysteries prayed out in other tongues, in the Holy Spirit, words cried out before the throne of God that no known human language can express, as my First Nations brothers teach us in the wisdom of the elders, spoken only in sacred seeking in healing circles and the utterances of the Great Spirit, the language of God, given us to worship our Great Spirit, in spirit and truth, through Yeshua Homishea, his mysteries breathed into us, in sacred communion and intimacy. The language of God…Tongues to the white man….
10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
And so redemptive power is released through His voice uttered through His sons, daughters, servants, with signs, wonders, miracles, and great destruction to the constructs of worldly men, devils, and carnal desires, as mercy triumphs over judgement, and holiness is exhibited once again through the blood of Jesus, and He, and He alone is glorified in it.
Read this little devotion by a man named John Oxenham:
Take the High Road:
He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;
To every man there openeth
A way, and ways, and a way.
And some men climb the high way,
And some men grope below,
And in between on the misty flats
The rest drift to and fro.
And to every man there openeth
A high way and a low;
And every man decideth
Which way his soul shall go.
‘Father, lead me on the highway of holiness today, may I ever take the high road, walking with you, glorifying Jesus, no compromise. Amen
