Yesterday we decided to rearrange our living room. We moved everything to different places in ways we’ve never done before. It was a bigger job than we anticipated. As we moved furniture and turned the rug, we found that there were hidden things that needed sweeping and casting out. Not a huge mess but still the vacuum along with the dust mop was used. Finally everything was moved and we plugged it all back in. Since we got this bright idea early before church, we turned on some praise and worship videos. The rearrangement gave us several benefits – we could see a different area of the front yard, we had better sound through the system we have on the tv and even the couches seemed to fit better and sit better.
Rearranging furniture is good exercise. But allowing God to rearrange our lives is even better. We get settled in one place and before we know it we’re stuck. But allowing Holy Spirit movement gives us fresh perspective and seats us in new heavenly places with Christ.
Oh beloved, you’ve seen some changes lately. Some you wanted. Some you didn’t. You may not understand it all but you are being redirected in the middle of it all. This rearranging of your life has uncovered some dusty areas. It’s not time to worry it’s time to be glad! You’re going to see more changes made by this turn of events than you can imagine. As you allow God to shift your focus you will see different areas of Holy Spirit, you’ll have keener hearing for His nudgings and the shift will fit you better.
God wants you to know that you are fit for this change. You have the strength through Him to make the physical, emotional and spiritual moves. Since all things work together for your good, you will increase in trust of the Lord because you will see the end result after the move. There is such delight from Him for your life – He loves to bless you in changes, strengthen you in movements and widen your horizons for the Kingdom. You’re going to find out some wonderful things! You CAN do it! And in moving things around you will find yourself feeling better, seeing better and doing more activity that sparks the Spirit within you!
God loves you and He’s for you! Your place of rest and your position for movement are all wrapped up in those words. Don’t fear losing stuff in the process, for you are destined to find more gold beneath the movement. Rejoice that you can run to Him for help all along the way as you live for Him and work in the Light of His Glory and Grace!
