God Works In Multi-Dimensional Ways

Psalm 139:7-12

“7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;

10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.

12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.”

God is a multi-dimensional eternal being Who exists in our world and in heaven. God is outside our earthly linear time (Matthew 6:6-13, 1 Timothy 1:17, and 2 Corinthians 4:18). Christ taught this principle as He spoke about Father God, Who is in heaven, and that the Father’s will be done on earth (where we are now) as it is done in heaven (Where God exists). Remember, God exists through Jesus Christ (Who is God) on Earth and now through the Holy Spirit (Who is God). God is omnipresent and is everywhere.

Matthew 6:9-11

 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”

Though it is hard for our finite brain to comprehend an infinite God, it is only through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit that we see a glimpse of His infiniteness. Through the divine one, you may, in your limited way (remember God is omnipresent), understand that God works in limitless ways, for He is limitless.

Jeremiah 23:23-24

“23 Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off?

24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord.”

When thinking of how God is working through you, pray to expand your thinking to see outside of your earthly box and spiritually see the spiritual layer upon layer where God is moving. Look at it this way God is wooing you to obey Him and submit to His will. God lovingly calls us to submission, which you may think is just about you, but let’s be Kingdom-minded and see the deeper movement.

Have you ever thrown a stone in a pond, and the initial point where it landed is ground zero, or where you are? The ripples spreading out from the stone hitting the water is how God uses your life through the supernatural Holy Spirit to spread out in ripples from yourself to family, friends, jobs, church, and community. The Creator is not confined to earthly thinking or even earthly lives. When you drive down the highway, look to the left and right at all the homes. In these homes are people whom God wants to come to Him, and He is offering them opportunities to hear His word. Christians are a part of how Christ wants to work in these people’s lives. The ripple effect is a humble allegory of how submission and obedience to God’s word, on a natural level, also affect the spiritual. Your humility and actions will affect others in the spiritual realm as well. It is imperative to understand that your actions are not stand-alone. Your choices affect many people, and your choices are important. In the Bible, Saul lost his life and kingdom over disobeying God with a forbidden action (1 Samuel 28). The book of Acts speaks of Ananias and Sapphira scheming together and lying to the Apostles and Holy Spirit, and both dropped dead. (Acts 5:1-11). Ananias went first and lied and died, then Sapphira lied and died. Sapphira could have made her own decision and chosen the righteous path, but she did not. Her consequence was instant death.

The story of Elisha and Naaman shows how God works in many lives in the same event using the ripple effect. One was healed and had to humble themselves; some were used to speaking the truth; one lied and brought leprosy upon himself. Some people in the account were Naaman, captain of the Syrian force, a mighty warrior with leprosy. Naaman’s wife had a servant girl who told of the prophet in Israel who could heal Naaman. Naaman spoke to his King, so the Syrian King sent a letter to the Israeli King to heal Naaman. King of Israel, who was fearful for his life, for he could not heal Naaman and tore his clothes, scared that Syria would attack Israel. Elisha, the man of God, heard the King was sorrowing and told him not to fear to send Naaman to him to show there is a true prophet in Israel.

The prophet Elisha gave Naaman instructions to bathe in the river seven times. Naaman came to Elisha and was in a rage at the cure of bathing seven times in the river. He wanted a show of bells and whistles for Elisha to call upon God, and God to strike the place and was angry and left; perhaps pride got in the way.

Naaman’s servants came to him and sought for him to follow the prophet’s word. He bathed seven times, and his flesh came upon him; the leprosy was gone.

Naaman came to bless Elisha with goods, but Elisha refused because God healed Naaman. Gehazi, the servant of Elisha, watches everything, chases Naaman, and lies to him about Elisha wanting a small portion of goods. When he had the goods, he came back and lied to Elisha, and because of his actions, the leprosy curse from Naaman was upon him and his seed forever. You can read the account in its entirety in 2 Kings 5:1-27.

You can see how God uses many people in His plan to bring glory to Himself, heal one Captain of Syria whose healing would proclaim the wonders of the Lord God of Israel, and protect Israel from possible war. God exposed the greed in Elisha’s servant Gehazi, Naamans’s wife would be happy, and a little girl who was a servant’s life was probably better. The King of Israel was reassured, and the servants with Naaman saw God’s healing and would surely tell of the work of God through the prophet. Most of all, surely a mighty God watches over Israel.

You are part of the plan of God. He loves you so and wants to use you for His Kingdom. Partner with God, be obedient, and watch God change the world around you. God is good; He never leaves you; as you are in the finishing, you are changed, and so are those who listen to the HS around you.

Ephesians 1:3

“3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.”

God bless you abundantly.

Till we meet again,

  1. Thought provoking and encouraging. God is everywhere and He is about the business of salvation and transformation everywhere He is. Just as God is limitless so are His solutions and strategiez infinite and past finding out. He is always watching, protecting & intervening to turn every outcome to our good & His glory. Whether with rewards or consequences unto salvation, our God is diligent for our good, everpresent, all knowing and watchful God. Hallelujah! Amen
