God has a word for us, "NO MORE BOXES!" God does not live in a box. He did at one time – but ever since He broke out of the Ark of the Covenant, He has never lived in a box again. Of course, you and I tend to live in boxes that are often fairly nice, although cramped. They're neat, but stuffy, old and stale. If God no longer lives in a box, then let's follow suit and let's live outside of the box too!
He wants to lift the lid over our heads so that we can experience His voice in an on going basis. Let's breathe in God's refreshing Word and renew our hearts and souls so that we will walk in a new level of His divine creativity!
God Confirms His Word
God wants us to hear His voice, discern it from other voices, and then, through the spirit of wisdom and revelation, correctly interpret and apply the word He has spoken to us. God has said that out of the "...mouth of two or three witnesses every fact may be confirmed" (Matthew 18:16). For emphasis, we find this statement, or a variation, three times in Scripture: in Deuteronomy 19:15, in Matthew 18:16 and in 2 Corinthians 13:1.
Evidently, God does not want us to only know the historical Jesus, who came in human form and walked among men. He greatly yearns that we would also know the living, resurrected Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. The Father wants to enable us to hear, know and obey the risen Lord. But often we don't realize that He is speaking to us. No wonder we miss His cues. He is such a multifaceted Creator; endlessly creative in how He chooses to communicate.
