Clearly: The Clearing

Scriptures

Jeremiah 1:4-12

Notes

How you perceive things determines how you conceive things. How you conceive things determines how you receive things.

Eventually your mistake will mock your miracle.

Ishmael is the product of man trying to help God fulfill His promise. Due to His promise, Ishmael obtained and maintains the covering and terms.

God is the only one who can take your problem and turn it to His plan.

You will only have an appreciation for your future while you have an appreciation of your past.

God always has a plan before the enemy has a plot.

You are only successful when you have completed what you were created to do. Success is not predicated on external factors and people. God only needs you to do what He told you to do. Stop viewing yourself through perceptions, mistakes, past, and hangups. He does not; you should not.

You cannot build where something already exists.

Uproot and tear down → destroy and demolish → build and plant.

It is not the bad thing that happened to you during your night that is an issue preventing yourself from being blessed. It is the seed that was planted during the night at the “bad time.” The enemy's seed grows with God's seed. If precautions and perceptions are not made, both that have grown will be retrieved during harvest. The enemy's crop must be removed before you are able to fully function with complete efficiency in His plan and purpose. It must be uprooted and His plan and purpose replanted in your life.

Sharper than a sword

Hebrews 4:12

piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and quick to discern the thoughts and intends of the heart.

The Word is not a sword. It is a scalpel.
Swords are meant for damage. Scalpels are meant for healing.
