If there is one word that could describe what God wants to accomplish through the Christian’s life, it would be the word “innovation.” I know in my own life, when God has told me He wanted to do a particular thing, He has always brought it about in a way that is refreshing, innovative, and totally blows me away. I have to wait for His Timing, of course.
When I looked back, I could see how He brought several different circumstances and people together to do a certain thing at a certain time. Many of them probably did not even realize that they were a part of His great plan for the answer that I needed.
When I saw this poster, I started to think about how God works vs how Man works. “Change” is and has always been a threat to most people. We hit upon a way to do something, and want to stick with it. When something new and innovative is introduced to us, most of the time our first thought is to disregard it as being beneficial in any way. We surely can’t imagine that it would be a better way than what we know now.
It’s funny how we resist something new for awhile, but then get used to it and treat it like we have always known it would be the best way to do things.
If it is your desire to be obedient to God, the word “innovation” will be a huge part of your vocabulary. God is not big on letting people stay in their “comfort zone” for long at the time. He constantly prunes and shapes your life to ease you in the direction He knows will be best for you.
People usually say the things in the poster above because they cannot see the whole picture. God can see it, and He wants to continually “blow you away” by using you to carry out His Plans.
- Seek Him in prayer and take a step in the direction He shows you
- Ask Him to reveal any sin in your life and be sure that you truly REPENT of it – don’t just be sorry and stop there
- Know that most of the time He probably won’t show you the whole picture – just one step at the time
- Learn about His Character, and then you will know that you can trust Him with your life
Decide today that you will take the ride of your life. Allow God to be as innovative as He desires. You definitely won’t be bored!
