Wildly Liberating

“Jesus: ‘Ah, but what about you? Who do you say that I am?’ Peter: ‘God’s Anointed, the Liberating King.'” -Luke 9:20 (the Voice)

Disclaimer: Here is my promise to you. Not every post I write will be heavy and burdensome. Some may be because that’s life. But for the most part, because of who God is, we will always end up taking His yoke upon us, which is light.

Day 3 and here is what I know. Rest takes time to acclimate to.

Whenever there is a shift in the speed, cadence or momentum of a thing (or an entire life) it can take some time to readjust. The problem (as I see it) is when there is not appropriate time or space for a shift to happen.

Here is what I mean. EVERYTHING changes and we keep on keeping on. At a pace that is no longer appropriate for the reality of our experience and existence. I think that is called survival.

So God clears space.

We don’t know what to do with the space so we fill the space, often times with the “usual” things God has just delivered us from, in order that we can continue to operate from a familiar place. Even though it no longer serves the season of our lives, it’s comfortable and it allows us the delusion of managing (uh hum…controlling) life.

Either God is who He says He is, or He is not. If He is, we can trust Him even when everything in us screams to take the bull by the horns and get to work.

New seasons take time to acclimate to. New seasons invite sobriety. New seasons require dropping the pin and relinquishing control of outcomes. It seems almost irresponsible, doesn’t it?

That, or wildly liberating.

    Thanks Brooke…that was what I needed to hear today. I’m coming up on my first year as a new mother and all those awesome changes:) I need to remind myself all that matters is who does Jesus say that I am.

    Hello, Brooke. You are not alone in this. What I am witnessing is answered prayer coupled with angst. Maybe I wasn’t exactly fully ready (in those inner most spaces) for the big audacious prayers to be answered, yet He is! I am finding strength and courage to grow more and more into His image; in those deeper inner most spaces on His behalf and for His glory. It takes time. Let us muster up the strength & courage to lie down so He can do the work in us through His Holy Spirit. This is exactly where we long to be, isn’t it? So we boast in our weakness. For when we are weak, He is strong. Thank goodness! Love and big audacious blessings be yours in Him too.
