Have you ever felt the spirit of opposition and allowed it to stop you from something you knew and desired in your heart? Did you ever look around and allow the spirit to oppress you due to your past failures or due to the lack of belief? When God gives us a vision or desire in our heart we should never allow Satan to spiritually discourage or rob us of our purpose in life. Sometimes in order to break through the oppression we have to step out of the box to see the Way.
Throughout time man has set up perimeters to follow and these perimeters are what Jesus often spoke against due to man following tradition instead of listening to the heart. Our God is of order and He teaches to obey authority but He is the one who qualifies man as it is validated in the spirit of others. We never know where God may be working and all it takes is the eyes to see and the ears to hear as we come together in the spirit of God to witness amazing things in His glory.
God tells us in 1 Samuel that He does not see as man sees. For he does not look upon the outside appearance for He looks upon the heart of man. David came out of no where and was the least of his brothers but had the heart of God. If you were to look upon your heart and ask what God may see would you find the heart of a champion or a heart that has grown tired and weary. The Lord can refresh your spirit as you call upon His name and He is often working in places that we never see due to forgetting how to truly believe. This spiritual message paralells the movie Secretariat as God displayed the heart of a stallion that went against all odds to set new records. It took the belief and sacrifice for a family that recognized the heart within one to uplift others….Enjoy this brief movie trailor on Secretariat http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftFMenGAd2A&feature=relmfu to further relate this message….
