Are you ready for a radical change? To have a radical change in one’s life means to have a new thorough, major, complete, comprehensive new course of something different from what it would be left alone.
Are you open to the Spirit of God invading your life with something new? Sometimes in order for God to invade us with change we have to be open, willing to let go, or take a step back in order to go forward. Maybe a radical change in your life might be to embrace something so different that you even have to lay down your own formed opinions and embrace a change in the way you are thinking.
In Genesis 13:1 it says Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot went with him. Abram had been in Egypt because of a famine. Egypt was to be in a place of confinement, to feel cramped and distressed. One day he made a decision: “I am going to leave this place.”
Maybe you have to make a decision such as Abram did. Decisions can be so important. To decide means a conclusion or resolution reached after consideration. In order for radical change to take place, conclusions must be drawn and decisions made. Proverbs 3:5-6, a familiar passage of scripture says, “Always trust the Lord completely, and do not think that your own wisdom is enough. Remember the Lord in everything that you do. If you do, He will show you the right way to go.”
Sometimes having a radical change isn’t necessarily in having to relocate to a new location as Abram did, but a new place of thinking that gives you a fresh new outlook.
I believe that the Lord is saying that whatever circumstances you may feel you are in that elicit a feeling of confinement or stress, He has another way.
He asks us to realize our own wisdom is not enough but to acknowledge Him and He will reveal His way to take. 2017 is going to be a year of radical change. Are you up for it? You may need some help along the way!! Food for thought!
