It’s a known fact that if you want a different result you can’t keep doing the same old thing—the same old way. Somewhere, down the line, you are going to have to make a change. That usually means getting out of the box called: “business as usual.” I know change isn’t always easy. But, if you’re not pleased with the way things are going, then something needs to change, and that change might have to start with you.
The box is suffocating.
Let’s take faith for example. Faith takes risk, and risk requires action. We are not supposed to be so afraid to move out on faith that we just remain in the same dire circumstances forever. I don’t think that’s God’s will for our lives. He wants us out and about so the world can see His glory shining through us. (Matthew 5:16)
After Jesus ascended to heaven, He left His Holy Spirit to live inside us. Christians have divine unlimited power available to them all the time. If we want to see the fullness of that faith operating, we have to let the Holy Spirit direct our lives. (Proverbs 3:5,6) One thing is for sure; faith in the Holy Spirit won’t allow us to be boxed in the limited confines of human thinking, reasoning, and resources.
Unrestrained power can’t be contained in a box.
Sometimes when we pray for God to change a situation in our lives, He will tell us what to do either through His Word or by giving us an inner prompting as to which way to go. But, if we don’t follow His leading it could inhibit the change we are seeking. That change could require us to explore new ideas as we put our faith and trust in God.
Walking in the will of God gets us out the box over into faith. The enemy wants us too afraid to venture out. He would rather keep us locked away from our potential in God. But God said:
Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. (Psalm 91:13)
The devil didn’t have enough power to keep Jesus in the grave. And, since we have that same power operating inside of us as Christians, we don’t have to stay boxed-in, therefore,
Get out the box!
