A Doorway to Wonder

"There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not: The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid." Prov 30:18-19

Elegant buoyancy, derived warmth, navigation and love that pursues...

The cross is revealed to be a beginning and not an ending. Once that which is dead and buried in God's plan rises that risen one rises with newness of life that has transcendent qualities that are marvelous. Christ was the first of many. He is our anchor within the veil. Spirit indwelling and Spirit filling now make possible dynamics not before known.

A child of God has ears to hear like an eagle has wings. Hearing that functions well in the heights. There is an upper highway where words shine. Spectators see a bird sailing through nothing but the Eagle sees something else... hears something else.

How does a ship go from here to there. Not by looking outward but by looking upward. Sailors are guided by the stars and believers are guided by God. The Bible is a compass. Seeking the Father's will is meat and drink for a hungry soul that is influenced and surrounded by a living Spirit. There is guidance, an anchor in the storm... there is purpose in going from here to there.

Warmth is derived not produced. The Sun on a rock... the Father and the Holy Messiah... we can go and curl up there and we are sustained through the cold dark night. That place is warm... it is not the warmth of a self made fire that produces smoke and sparks and only ashes remain. This warmth is clean.

Lastly... Love... So strange and wonderful. What power... what intimacy compares to it. The cross is a doorway into a different kind of love. You can't explain it to an outsider. It is not the love of a living soul... it is the love of a quickening Spirit. A man and woman have a closeness that no one else is invited into... it is a language that only they speak to one another. Yes. They want other to have it but no one will stand between them.

The resurrection provides objective stability and it is truth we live in. The breadth of God blows on the embers of our mind and makes the scriptures glow with life. We navigate even as someone mighty and eternal navigates us.

God send your Spirit like a mighty rushing wind today. The old is buried and we want to live in the wonders of the new.
