Read Genesis 12:1-7
1 The LORD had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. – Genesis 12:1 NLT
Hello family, In order to bring us to the next level in our walk with Him, God will cause a shift in our lives. Abram (soon to be Abraham) was doing just fine right where he was. He definitely was not lacking, he had his family around him and things were great as they were, so why move? Why? Because God is shifting him!
Our cars have gears each one has a different point at which it engages. If you have a car with a top speed of 200 Mph You will need to shift gears to get to 200, gear one will only get you to 90 Mph, you wont get to 200 Mph just on that gear alone. I know you have become very comfortable where you are, but its time to step up to the next level.
Shifting will also require you to do thing differently than you used to at gear one. You see gear two tops out at 120 mph. You can’t just lean back with one hand on the wheel with your slow jams on. No! At this new level you will need to turn off the slow jams and sit up! Because God has you moving at a more intense speed, you are going to need to be more vigilant looking out for any hazards. The enemy wants to keep you down. More attacks will come be ready for them.
God will also give us direction, and we must be ready to act at a moments notice. If He wants you to replace the time you use to watch you favorite show with quite time with Him, guess what gotta give it up! When we shift up to the next level we can’t do the same thine we did before and expect different results, that is called insanity! God is shifting you, expect the unexpected, be ready to move when He says move, sit up turn off the slow jams and be alert!
Much Love & God Bless
