Breathing rarefied air.

If we walk in the Spirit we shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh (Gal 5:16)

Our life shall thus be transformed from a defensive warfare, in which we are always attacking evil, to a glorious consciousness of God only, which shall exclude the evil from our thought as well as from our life. We shall not have to constantly clear the sunken rocks from our channel, but on the high and full torrent of the Divine life we shall rise above every obstruction¬† and move, as in Ezekiel’s vision, in a river of life which shall be above our ankles , and above our loins, a river to swim in, carrying us by it’s substantial fullness.( A.B.Simpson)

Walking in the Spirit, walking in the obedience of God. Coming into the fullness of His glory. Engulfed in a river that flows from heavens eternal majesty. Being carried by its “substantial fullness.” Glory to God. Is that not what we want brothers and sisters? Leaving behind the cursing of the darkness and proclaiming instead of God’s ineffable glory. Rather than fighting through the thickets and dense forests of life, we should be engulfed and taken by the depths of His river. Paradoxically, walking in the Spirit is to flow in the glory of God’s river of life.

One of man’s most natural fears is to drown, to be taken by the depths and given over to it. To open up ones lungs is to be immediately drowned. To walk in the Spirit, to flow in Ezekiel’s river is not that much different. To be swallowed whole by the Spirit of God, to be fully given to Him fills us with great fear. What will happen to us? Where shall this take us? We have been so used to hanging on, we have no idea what letting go even looks like. To no longer stand upon our own two feet is to walk in the Spirit and be engulfed in heavens purpose, which is to be fully focused on gazing into impenetrable light in which God dwells. And from that place ceaseless streams of praises flow. Open up your lungs and breathe the rarefied air of heaven brothers and sisters.
