Isaiah 43:18-19; So don’t remember what happened in earlier times. Don’t think about what happened a long time ago, 19 because I am doing something new! Now you will grow like a new plant. Surely you know this is true. I will even make a road in the desert, and rivers will flow through that dry land.
Ruts are graves with the ends knocked out. I know, random thought, right? When habits and patterns become something we have to maintain, perhaps it’s time to bring on some change.
Some personalities love routine, others HATE it! Whatever it is in your life that you’re tired of, or perhaps IT’s just tired, spruce it up. I know when I grow tired of the livingroom, I move the furniture around. Sometimes I paint the walls, add new pillows, change around the pictures.
There are times I have devotions at a park, at the beach, in the courtyard, but if your devotion time is becoming the same ole thing and you’re not getting fresh revelation, something as simple as going to a different room, turning off the lights, sitting in the dark and pouring out your love onto the Lord will add variety.
Bottom line-don’t be stuck or afraid of change! God is a God who is alive. He never tires of spending time with you. Even a simple, “Good Morning, Father!” brings his presence in like a flood. Always have pen and paper ready to write down the smallest of impressions. Write a love song or poem to the Lord. Express yourself! If you can’t express it to the Lord, how are you going to express the Lord to others.
Lord, help us not to stay in a place where you no longer are. When you move, let us move with you. We are yours and yours alone. Our life would be empty and boring without the joy we find in following after you. May we see others through your eyes! May we be burdened for the lost and always remember your widows and orphans. Bless Israel oh Lord, the people you love. It’s in Jesus’ name, Amen.
