Lift your game !
I heard very clearly this phrase the other day from the Lord
It was not to do with the English Soccer team in the World Cup semi final. Although in the second half they did not consolidate their lead. They did not lift their game. It was if they had been given bromide in their tea or some sort of depressant.
The Ecclesia needs to walk out what has already happened in Heaven on earth.
In Heaven the ‘game’ is being played at full pitch. No one is imperfect. No decision is faulty. No action lacks faith or is full of doubt. No one is under any illusion as to their identity in Christ and the Father. They are there because they chose the Way the Truth and the Light. They have a purpose as the Cloud of Witnesses. They are not sitting idle or dejected. They need us on earth to lift our game.
What does that mean?
In essence it means that those of of us that have been privileged to see and taste already that the Lord is good. Those who listen and hear the Word of the Lord clearly and know He is risen and alive today. Those who walk in the gifts that He bestows on them, need to realise something once and for all.
We need to start walking out Heaven on Earth properly.
We need to know who we are in Him in our hearts minds and body.
God has no fear of man. We should not either.
God loves everything and everyone. We need to as well.
God is not selfish. His Ahava love goes outwards all the time
God is not worried or vexed.
We cannot be either.
God is never afflicted by anything.
We cannot afford to be either.
God has entrusted us. Wd need to trust Him fully.
Raising the game means literally getting better and maintaining the level higher and higher. Not dropping into mediocrity. Not letting the side down. Not being sloppy. But precise measured and directed.
First the physical then the spiritual.
Don’t expect to be performing well in the Holy spiritual if your physical body mind and soul are impaired by earthly worries.
This new wine skin is a spiritual one as well as a physical one.
“Your eye is like a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is filled with light. But when your eye is unhealthy, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is!
Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
