All of us are going through some kind of transition, whether physical or spiritual. These really are changing times, and for that reason we are encouraged to stay focused on the task at hand.
In the last stages of moving out of our house that has been a part of my life for the last 29 years, I thought it was going to be a breeze; the breeze turned into a turbulent wind! So many emotions surfaced that I didn’t know were still active. Fooled me! I love this house. It's funny how we become so attached to something, and don't realize how great the attachment is until we are about to separate from it. I love this house. Lots of history here. We are reminded from time to time not to become so attached to things of this world. It is all temporary. We are to be good stewards over it, share it, and at the same time be willing to give it up at the drop of a hat...if He says so. So, when it is time to transition from one temp dwelling to another, it should be fairly easy. SHOULD BE. Perhaps I have become a little bit too attached. However, I shall get over it! Moving on.
How many times has He said to get rid of a certain attitude, jealousy, the unnecessary sharp tongue? Let’s see…what about self-centeredness, being angry about everything but the real thing…sin, or spiritual competition (who does that!). On moving day this stuff has to get tossed. It’s a lot and it will not fit at all in the next place. If it is insisted, you may have to stay where you are…spiritually speaking.
You never know how much stuff you have until you have to bag it all up. We have had to downsize, give away some things, sold some things, stored some. God is downsizing us too. He’s cutting away things that there is no room for in the new place. You know, things that are not holy and Christ-like.
I'm packing up and getting ready to go. If it doesn’t fit in the brand new bag, it’s outta here! But we are also making sure that we pack the right things to move into our next level of anointing, as well.
The task at hand is to let go of junk that is not needed, and only carry in your spirit that which will minister, and get you into the new temporary place. We are ever changing and being transformed to look more and more like Him!
Are you prepared to let it all go at any given moment? Think about that. Moving Day is here, and we are in the last stages of moving out.
