Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. – Philipians 3:15
As Peter got out of the boat in the middle of that storm I’m sure the other disciples were probably thinking, “What if he made a mistake!?” Doubting Thomas said that unless he could see it, unless he could touch it (in other words, unless he could receive it through his senses), he wouldn’t believe. Jesus, however, is contrary when he says “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
Truly I believe when it comes to operating in the prophetic, or the ministry of healing, or the ministry of deliverance; which Jesus plainly said we should do, our mind of reasoning is one of the main channels of confusion. It thereby limits us in doing the works of God.
One of the scriptures in Hebrews that always exhilarates me is that Jesus learned obedience by the things that He suffered. Meaning to me, that He was constantly improving, not only in His reception and hearing of the Father but also in His portrayal of what the Father wanted to do in any given situation. He grew in wisdom and in favor with God and man.
Reasoning will always be there to keep you from launching out into the deep. It’s that other still small voice besides the one that would have you to experience the great things of the Supernatural Kingdom. Remember you’re not in relationship with a tyrant, you’re in relationship with the merciful Mighty Almighty Loving Father.
