As time goes on we start to make an internal map of what is wrong and is right. This map is embedded in our subconscious and forms our belief system. It is often this map that steers us through the hundreds of daily decisions we have to make.
This freedom of thought and choice is an essential component of our design because it means be can we can change our way of thinking and experiencing instead of just repeating the same things over and over again.
The danger with this internal map is that it can blinker our spiritual eyes to the wonderful majesty of Christ that is alive within us. God is constantly uplifting us to know and experience his delight and love that is alive within us.
God gives us hundreds of opportunities every single day to which he wants to open up our eyes to his work within us.
By saying yes to God’s delight in us, we open up ourselves to new avenues of the Holy Spirit and therefore we become more conscious of his presence and we awake to his gentle whisper that invites us to engage with him.
It is however always easier to say no than yes. Yes requires courage to engage with God. Yes requires openness and generosity and no keeps things just as they are.
Yes involves risk and no does not. Yes requires trust whereas no requires none.
God’s hearts desire is that we enjoy him and delight in him. God has placed his Holy Spirit into us and invites us into the adventure of writing a new map in our hearts. He wants to take us on an adventure to discover the depths of his work in our lives.
Christ says Yes, for the declaration of God to us all God’s promises are YES and AMEN in Christ Jesus.
God wants to write inside our hearts a new map, and map of his grace, a map of his unconditional love, a map of his delight, a map of his treasure given to us. It is from this map of God’s delight that the Holy Spirit wants to re-configure our subconscious so that all we think and experience is from the majesty, grace and glory of God.
