Sacrifice & Letting Go
Hey there Lovebugs :)
Happy Tuesday! What are you willing to let go of so that God can bless you? Better yet, what are you willing to let go of so God can use you? Everything we have in our possession isn't necessarily good for us. Everyone in our space isn't necessarily good for us either! There are some things and people we are going to have to give up. Not because we're horrible people. Not because we're not smart enough. The reason is simple: we're moving into a new season!
Whenever there's a promotion or an elevation approaching, there's a cleansing, a breaking even that takes place. God has to purge us of old habits, thoughts and actions to make us fit for use. The things we did years ago aren't going to work now. The things we did months ago will not suffice now. God is doing a NEW thing! 2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV) says "old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." There are some things we have to let die! There are some things we have to close the door on! There are some things we just can't do anymore! We have to get ready to do a NEW thing!
So, Lovies, sit quietly before the Lord and let Him do a new thing! It will require sacrifice. It will require dedication. It will require hard work. But guess what? The benefits will FAR outweigh the sacrifices! Get ready Lovies because new is coming, and we need to be ready for it!
