TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
This is a time of transition into a new thing. Have you not heard? I absolutely love change and I want you to love it too! Search out who I am for you in this new place. As I take you higher, you will see me from a new perspective. It’s time to climb!
THE BIG SWITCHEROO
I love food, but would I want to eat the same thing every day for 40 years? Not really. For 40 years, the children of Israel didn’t eat anything but manna and quail. They all got tired of it. They grumbled but they ate. For 40 years.
It took them a long time to learn to trust God. Once they understood, the first thing they did when they got to the Promised Land was raid someone’s garden.
And the manna ceased on the day after they had eaten some of the produce of the land, so that the Israelites no longer had manna. – Joshua 5:12
The manna ceased. Can you imagine for 40 years, there was a certain way something worked? For 40 years, you had something to count on – it was there every time? I wonder what they thought when they woke up and there was no manna on the ground.
Maybe they thought it would come back tomorrow, but it didn’t. God just said, “Switch!” He’ll do that with you, you know. If you’re going to leave the old thing, God says, “Behold, I do a new thing. Can you wrap your head around it?”
With every upgrade comes a whole new way of relating to God, of experiencing God – of Him providing for you, and speaking to you. Are you going to rely on your methods or are you going to rely on Jesus? If you rely on your methods, you’ll go back to the wilderness to relearn that lesson.
I don’t want a trap door to fall out from under me! I don’t want to fall back into the Wilderness. If that’s you, get with the program! God will change your thinking, job, friends, church – even the place you live to get you on the same page as Him. Embrace the big switch! It’s your gateway to the Promised Land.
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO EMBRACE THE MAJOR CHANGES GOD HAS FOR YOU. TELL HIM, “BRING ON THE BIG SWITCH!”
