It’s complicated seeking answers and trying to connect the dots. When seeking expansion of vision, it isn’t a matter of when God will expand it if we know how to connect with that which holds the knowledge we seek. God gives us things in part. Rarely does he reveal to us the big picture initially. . Part of why is because:
- We’d ruin it.
- Our hands and not graceful.
- Our decisions are not made with FULL knowledge.
Without full knowledge, our reality is warped. You see a trap as an opportunity or a blessing as a test. Pure confusion.
I understand what it is to have no direction, no answers, no puzzle pieces- yet the expectation for productivity and achievement remains. However, God does not expect us to accomplish tasks that He has not disclosed.
We don’t read His mind, He reads ours. He has full understanding of us no matter how close we are to Him. We on the other hand will only know as much about God as we attempt to.
If we don’t seek Him, we won’t know Him.
If we don’t read our Bible, we won’t know Him
If we don’t pray, we won’t know Him.
So to the question, when is God going to expand the vision He’s given me? The answer is complicated.
Firstly, God is sovereign. That means He does whatever He wants, whenever He wants, however, He wants, for whatever reason He chooses to. There is nothing we can do to make Him do something He has no intention of doing.
However, God is not stiff, nor cold. He has provided plenty keys for unlocking the blessings and flow of knowledge. Namely, the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
The Spirit within us carries the secrets of God. Secrets being that which has not been revealed (yet). The Spirit has full knowledge. And we carry that knowledge within us. The consciousness of God is within us
1 Corinthians 2:11 For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
Our secrets and our thoughts are stowed away in a chamber hidden deep within our minds- our consciousness. God has made our spirits identical to His makeup. 1 Corthinians tells us that only the Spirit can comprehend, know, and understand the secrets and thoughts of God- they are His.
The Spirit wants to connect with God. The bit of God within us needs to connect to the true vine. That connection unlocks secrets, information, and the expansion of vision.
Connecting to the Spirit for Expansion of Vision
How do we do this? How do we connect to the Spirit, and therefore God, allowing for the expansion of vision, knowledge, and understanding?
- Worship. Worshipping God is a sacred, intimate act between the Creator and creation. It is a love language and unlocks his affections all the more.
- Obedience to the Word of God and the urges of the Spirit. Continuously grieving the Spirit with disobedience and mishap allows the enemy and dark forces to have a foothold in our lives. Obedience also ensures you arrive at your destination on time and intact.
- Fasting and Prayer. Fasting is a spiritual weapon and tool. Sacrificing our physical comfort and substituting prayer and meditation for earthly bread opens our spiritual senses. The weak body lowers its guard and yields to the Spirit.
- Meditation and quiet time– no distractions, no phones. How can God reach you when you always have Him on hold? Silence the noise, it’s possible He’s already spoken but because you haven’t fixated on His voice in the quiet or darkness, you have overlooked it.
- Reading the Word. When You don’t hear God’s voice, the Bible is His voice! The Bible is His words, literally.
- Taking steps in the physical realm. We can’t just tally all the instructions God gives us in our head, we must act them out on earth. You have to start somewhere, but more than that, you must start.
Ultimately, centering our lives around Christ- our actions, thoughts, and intentions are key to expanding our minds and vision.
Lastly, we need a sound mind for knowledge to come to us for expansion of vision.
Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
The Spirit of God, the dove, wants to rest on someone. The dove wants rest.
Matthew 3:16 “and when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him”.
We know the Spirit of God houses the consciousness of God where all the secrets lie. The Spirit of God will not rest on an unsound mind. You must still your mind and redirect your thoughts to God. Hyperfixation of material things, worldly concerns, and worries like bills, and errands are not an invitation to the Spirit. He is seeking a worshipper, a praiser, a prayer.
Still your mind, for expansion.
