Many are they who presently feel empty within without heavenly vision. Yet faking the funk won't cause you to win. The road to hell is often paved with good intentions. You can be so wrong for so long, but if you really want a breakthrough let me tell you what to do...
Before the roof caves in and the truth comes out, humble yourself and fall upon the Rock of ages Christ Jesus the God of the resurrection. God is not moved by headstrong know-it-alls whose fragile egos require continual self-exaltation.
Confess to God the error of your ways, pride, wrongdoing, weakness and inability to find the way to your personal promised land. Let's face it folks! Like it or not, we all need God at some time and point in our life. Your breaking point and dire disappointment is therefore a divine invitation and appointment with your Creator to create something new in, with, through and for you!
God gives grace speedily, generously and abundantly to the humble; but He swiftly resists the proud in heart. Therefore be childlike in heart and mind, acknowledging your need of God and His divine involvement, intervention and orchestration in your life.
Otherwise trying to stand alone you shall likewise fall alone. However if you draw near to God, He can resurrect hope in your heart and cause you to not only stand, but also to boldly and bravely enter your personal promised land (though it usually comes as you walk by faith, not by sight).
Change is ongoing in life. No matter how smart you think yourself to be... No matter how headstrong and resistant you may be... No matter how arrogant and obnoxious you are... Change is a definite fact that if resisted will break you and limit your ability to go far.
Change therefore is not the problem - we are when we resist it, which causes us to enter prisons of our own making and be bound by chains. Yet the chains are more internally restricting than outwardly restricting, because a small inner adustment and renewing of the mind can immediately change your perspective and prepare for you new electives... new options... new situations... new destinations... new opportunities... giving birth to new relationships and divine connections...
Jesus said "They who are born of the Spirit are as the wind" ...a bit unpredictable, but always dynamic and powerful (John 3:8).
When the wind blows it is refreshing and invigorating. Eagles spread their wings and rise upon the wind.
Chickens stay on the ground to cluck and crow. However they who embrace change and draw near to God with humility of heart will arise with heavenly vision to fly and be on the go!
Die to your pride and that which you adamantly require ...and let the God of the resurrection impart to your heart new divine fire and give birth to that which you ultimately desire.
Change and transition is the way of the wild. Conservatives and top heavy folks don't usually thrive under such circumstances during turbulent times.
But they who know their God will be strong and accomplish great things (Daniel 11:32) in the midst of turbulent times because their citizenship is in heaven, their trust is in their Creator ....who continually creates and gives birth to new opportunities!
They who are earthly minded however cleave to their beloved country (many of which are presently falling and all of which shall powerfully be shaken, tested and tried in the last days - Haggai 2:6-8) and are greatly limited thereby and crippled therein.
The citizens of heaven however continually manifest, embrace and arise to soar higher and transcend geographical borders and boundaries to rejoice in a world of opportunities.
A new day and a new way is upon us!
Enjoy the waves of change or be contained by the chains of your prideful resistance.
