Rarely have I been so unsure of what God is saying-
Yet rarely have I been so sure of who He is
Rarely have my thoughts of where He is leading me shifted so frequently-
Yet rarely has my calling and destiny felt so secure
Rarely has the future seemed so shrouded in mystery-
Yet rarely have I walked in such confidence and peace
Maybe the goal isn’t to get somewhere
Maybe it is to keep walking in step with Someone
In divine union
In sweet communion
Maybe it isn’t about accomplishments, or even fulfilled prophecy and promises
Maybe it is about the naturally supernatural impact of a surrendered life-
A life yielded to the One
Who is Perfect Love
I’ve heard a lot of talk in recent years about new wine. Yet I keep having this sense that we’re still trying to fit the new wine into old wineskins. Into old methods and formats. Into old thought patterns. Into old paradigms.
But what if His new thing really is a new thing? Or maybe the new thing is actually a really old thing that just feels really new because we’ve drifted so far from true North? What if what He’s doing offends our sense of maturity, or our ideas of prophetic insight and revelation? What if He challenges the assumptions we’ve made about His Word and His ways? What if He isn’t speaking to us in exactly the same ways He has in the past? What if He chooses not to handcuff Himself to theological patterns that make us feel secure?
God never changes. This bedrock truth is our eternal plumb line. However, our understanding of who He is should be continually expanding and growing. Growth brings growing pains. Growth changes our size, our proportions, and our perspective. When you grow, many old things that used to fit so comfortably, no longer fit at all.
But His love always fits perfectly. Always has, always will. His love never changes. His love never fails.
“But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.” -1 Corinthians 13:8-10
Could it be that completion–wholeness–fullness–perfection–will finally begin to manifest when the Body realizes that:
…Our highest prize
…Our highest privilege
…Our highest calling
Is simple, unbroken, uncomplicated, pure communion–divine union–with Him?
Lord, align our hearts and minds with Yours. Help us to live in the simple beauty of daily, intimate communion with You–wherever that leads us. We want to be where You are, do what we see You doing, and love how You love–now and through eternity. ~Amen
