I mentioned in the previous article that nothing changes for me. And by that I don’t mean there is not constant change going on all around me every day. So what do I mean?
I never knew what a blessing being able to make such a statement would be. If there is one thing I dislike, it’s boredom. So you would think, “nothing changing”, would be boring, but it’s totally not! It’s totally exciting because I wake every day knowing that no matter what may happen today, I still have the same vision! The same way of living. The me I have grown to be continues on no matter what! A worthy vision is like our guiding star! We don’t get lost in the night.
I’ve always been a person of VISION. As long as I have a vision, I know where I’m going, what I’m doing, and what life is about for me. In my Bible, in Jesus, I found a vision that never fails and never ends! What more could I want? And so…when I say: “Nothing changes for me”, what I mean is > “I have trained myself to live in spirit, not flesh.”
T-H-E-R-E-F-O-R-E, “physical” things do not devastate me, change my plans, change who I am, change what my life is about. SO…even though a hurricane may be blowing over head, the lake within me remains calm, the waters unrippled, because I still get to live the life I want to live, a life in spirit. It’s a matter of the inner and outer principal. What happens outside me does not have to affect the vision inside me.
I use different terminology when I refer to this at various times. I may speak of Godwalking, or God Balance, or God Task, and so on; but it all connects to the same inner vision which I got from Jesus, the Son of God: Live in the Spirit, not the flesh. Spirit is my life foundation.
Physical things do not devastate me because my life is spirit. I do not dread even death, because only the flesh actually dies, my spirit will be released to pass through the next door of the supernatural. I sincerely believe we have a Creator who has prepared a place for those who do not reject their Creator, but honor Him through His will through Christ Jesus.
So no matter what each day brings, by faith I seek Holy Spirit, and together we Godwalk, maintaining a God Balance. But again, this is not the formula we will soon share. This is still the product of the formula.
If you have followed this site, you know that over a year ago I became very disappointed in what America seems to call “Church”. So I went on a nine day Godseek. My wife and I went to the Black Hills of South Dakota. We came back from there with a developing vision. I’ve been getting out of bed every day and walking that direction ever since that trip. This led to building the Teepee I’m still working on. There have been MANY challenges along the way, but did that change anything? No. The challenges have “affected” the path to the vision, but not the vision itself, especially since not even the Teepee is really the vision! The vision is: “Living in Spirit, not flesh!”
To do this I became a Priest through Christ Jesus, the High Priest after the Order of Melchizedek. I don’t mean I wear a white collar or anything, but salvation in Christ brings us into a Priesthood, and our focus becomes “Spirit”, more than flesh.
There are many thing in this physical world I get to enjoy. As a matter of fact, living in spirit seems to enhance the flesh, because by the wisdom of God we avoid many painful mistakes. My wife and I are still very much in love. We have been married 41 years and have 5 great kids who love coming together as a family. And now dad is building a Teepee in his old age, of all things, for the 7 Grandkids, and the family to come together for great times. Also many ministry opportunities have been happening at this special place, even though it is far from completed.
God has proven he don’t need a finished product to use it. The Teepee stands as a direct challenge to many people’s way of life. It’s a picture of simplicity, serenity, peace, the beauty of nature, the joy of an early morning song bird, it causes people to consider a different way of living and just maybe realize all this world’s “stuff” and “fun” are not the answer. They will never satisfy your SOUL! And your soul is the real YOU, not the thing you see in the mirror. We see spirit, not flesh.
Soul Peace is only found one way, a life in spirit. By that I mean your spirit, and God’s Spirit, joined together, walking together, Godwalking in a godly balance. This is what we’re teaching in these articles. We have peace, and we teach peace.
Soon we will begin examining what I’m calling “The Formula”, what Jesus did to have a vibrant Spirit life with the Father. We think about these things and write about these things because our life is not shallow and complicated, but deep and simple. So says Grandpa White Feather. More to come soon. Hope you enjoy.
