Jesus said what is impossible for man is possible for God. When we have our minds set on things below we will say it’s impossible. The facts told us that man would never fly. But he does! The facts told us that the world is flat. But we know it isn’t. The mind of man tells us that we live in a finite world and yet the universe is expanding constantly. We have a very small idea of what is the truth and limit what can happen. We need to get our minds focused on things above. We are seated at the right hand of the Father in Christ. We have access to heaven’s perspective.
At times we really do get heaven’s perspective like when Jesus asked the disciples what people were saying about him. Peter got the revelation, the heaven view, that Jesus was the Christ, the son of the Living God. He was blessed for it as he had a heavenly view of reality. But within a short time he lost it. Jesus was telling the disciples what was to happen to him and Peter pulled him aside to rebuke him. Matt. 16:22-23 “Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. "Never, Lord!" he said. "This shall never happen to you!" Jesus turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men." Jesus had to rebuke him, as Peter did not have God’s perspective. The Complete Jewish Bible puts it this way. Matt. 16:22- 23 “Kefa took him aside and began rebuking him, "Heaven be merciful, Lord! By no means will this happen to you!" But Yeshua turned his back on Kefa, saying, "Get behind me, Satan! You are an obstacle in my path, because your thinking is from a human perspective, not from God's perspective!" (Bold emphasis is mine)
We can be like Peter, one minute in the Spirit with heaven’s perspective the next minute working things out from a common sense perspective.
