Okay. It’s been about three weeks since the post “A Man Walking To God To Break The Ceiling” was published. So you may want to go back for review of that post as well as the post “A Man Walking To God” to be ready to jump into the flow with this new post. This post takes us up, and beyond those two post unto the place that the Father has just for us: our garden of plenty. Once we arrive at this place in God, we indeed have processed our life to where we must walk above the world’s ceiling to have this garden of plenty. As stated in the previous post, as long as we only produce what the world agrees with, we will always hit the ceiling placed on us by the world. Remember Moses’ miracle production company? As long as he produced that which Pharaoh (world system) could produce, there was no break through to let the people go: both produced serpents, water turning to blood, and frogs. It was not until Moses produced the lice, a product that we couldn’t rely on the world to produce, did Moses start the walk to be above the world’s ceiling. Man in the flesh is a creature of the flesh. We will rely on it if we can get our hands on it. We have to rely on that which the world has no control over. We have to rely on Father.
Remember that God knows all, and He could have come right out the box immediately with the lice already knowing that Pharaoh would not be able to produce lice. However, this is not about God defeating Pharaoh, or God defeating our enemies, those would be no match for God. This is about God training Moses, and us on our to defeat our enemies by using His power. Even with Moses, as stated in the last post, the offense must be run through God. God first called for the serpents already knowing that He would need the lice to start breaking through the ceiling. God next called for the waters to be turned into blood to further establish His training module still already knowing that He would need the lice to start breaking through the ceiling. And finally God called for the frogs to firmly establish a false sense of confidence by Pharaoh in his system as God runs the offense for Moses while still already knowing that He would need the lice to start breaking through the ceiling. We have to find out what God is calling for every step of the way so that He will be running our offense. He knows already what it will take to get us to walk above the ceiling, but He can’t take us straight to it if He has not already been calling our shots. He needs us to run our offense through Him. Yes, by all means, go to college, get specialized training, be a great artist, and amazing athlete; but also make sure to have God make the call. Through prayer, counsel, and meditation we can know what play is being called next according to His will for our life. This is how we arrive, and exhaust the world’s system to walk above the world’s ceiling.
It is not easy to position ourself in a place to make the break through from solely relying on the world’s system. The world’s system is much easier to follow, and rewards come quickly as long as we stay below its ceiling. Its road is wide, and traveled by all. The knock on the world system is that it also trains us to make it our crutch. It is all we know at the beginning. It is all part of what we need, and use to reach the ceiling. And we must use it to reach the ceiling in order for God to take us above it. So how do we take prayer, godly counsel, and meditation to rightly use the world’s system? Here is what we do. We make what it makes until it makes us hit its ceiling, but we let God direct us on what to make that it makes. Like with Moses, God called for Moses to make serpents, water into blood, and even promoted him to head the international division of frog making. All along God was processing Moses up to the break through promotion of running the Global overview alliance of lice deployment.
Let’s say a child talks to his/her Christian parents, Pastor, and counselors about dreams of making something of him or herself. That child finishes high school and takes God given talents, gifts, and abilities into a future based on whose call? We hope that to the best of all involved with the child, the call as to what’s next, comes from their belief in God. The child enters the work force, college, military, ministry, the arts, sports, and etc., with the belief to be a success as God would have him/her to be. Let’s break in here for a minute. It is so important that the word we move on is a word we believe that God has called for next. If college is the word believed, stick to it all the way. If we change our minds later, make sure God called the change, or some life event out of our control. The key here is to attempt to do that which we believe God has called us to do. Whatever we believe the call to be, we must believe that God will be there for us all the way.
Now let’s just talk from any adult level after high school. The word that we step out on: college, business ownership, employment, artist, athlete, or whatever; if we know that God is there for us, there is no reason to panic, and give up on our word once we run into a challenge. If God made the call, and for example, we ran the offensive play of business ownership through him first, we know that He has made a way above the ceiling. Another reason the word that we step into must be what we believe of God is so that the power of God can be there for us. Once a word is called out by God, college, money, frogs, lice, and whatever; the power of God will move on it to bring it to pass. Our word will not be an easy word every step of the way because the world will bring challenges. We then must produce fruit of the spirit to have patience, more tolerance, faith or whatever we need in order for the power of God to have time to make its move. We become trained to rely on the world’s system every time we end a word that we believe God has called out only because things Got hard. Hey, when things get hard, let the GOD begin!
Listen, even Jesus the word himself, told the Apostle not to leave before receiving the promise of power. Once we step out on the word college, athlete, water to blood, or whatever, don’t leave our word behind undone: wait for it, wait for the power to move. If God called for it, we must produce the fruit needed to wait for the power to move on our word. Let’s say that God called college for us, but no money yet, then we produce fruit of the spirit while the power of the Holy Ghost is moving to make good on our word. This is why the world is our crutch as well as our ceiling; if something stops our word for a minute, we can easily start something new in the world’s system, and get all off track. We may have to find a member of the body with power faith to identify the next move as we keep producing the fruit of the spirit faith to ask that member in the first place. They all work together for good if we learn how to work them. And the word that we are walking out is basically following the path made clear by the power of God along the way. We have to be like a running back with vision to cut to the opening, and then run through it. If you think that we are just going to run straight up the middle untouched, we will not be looking to the sides for our opening. God uses a lot of the world’s system to train us how to get to the ceiling faster in order for God to take us above it. Many times the word we start on is just that: it’s just the word that got us started. We then learn how to transfer to another word (like we do planes, trains, buses) to finish our destination. We are so funny at times that God tells us the one thing that gets us moving. If God came right at most of us with the end word, we would be stuck in the mud unable to get any real traction. I laugh with God at times when I’m reading scripture like after Moses had just got the word from Pharaoh to take the people and go. God instructs Moses to tell the people to go and borrow from their neighbor jewels of silver and of gold. Why say borrow when God knows that they will not see them again to pay them back? It’s just a joke between me and God, but the one thing I do know is that God always has a purpose behind whatever he says. It could have been said just to free up their minds to be able to leave Egypt? All we really know is to trust Him with whatever He says.
So as we walk out our word, the power of God is opening doors for us to walk that word right into its time and season of promise. This is to make sure we arrive at the times and seasons of that word on time. So in bodily form, moving along with the spiritual fullness(word, power, will) of God, we are able to move beyond the world’s ceiling. And we do this process over, and over again bringing to pass the will of God over, and over again.
