The Butterflies Rage

12 Jul

The Butterflies Rage…

Alright, you’re not really satisfied with your walk, not real happy with the way you act. You’re sick and tired of living less than joyous, less than holy, less than consistent, and less than victorious.

It’s not a bad thing. It’s a good thing. The sin isn’t good, nor is the defeat. What’s good is that you’re not content with it. Suppose you spent your life something like a worm, crawling around, eating dirt.

You’re doing all this, but you’re not happy with crawling, and you don’t even like dirt. It means you’re not a worm. If you were, you would have no problem with it; you’d enjoy it. If you’re not content with it, it points to something else.

Are you not content with your present life, or that sin, that compromise, that failure? Good. Because you’re not a worm. You’re a butterfly. You’re not of this world. You’re born from above.

You’re a beloved child of God. That raging discontent in your spirit is that of the new self: victorious, waiting to break free. So be discontented, but be encouraged and rage through to victory. Your very struggle is proof of your heavenly call.

Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. Hebrews 3:1

Look now at that thing in your life that doesn’t line up with where you want to be in your walk with the Lord. Break it open and break through to your calling.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
