Lately I’ve just been thinking about the importance of refreshing the seasons. I don’t want to keep looking back and asking myself: “What worked yesterday?” So that I can do that again today. That is so unoriginal and in general just blocks the opportunity for things to unfold organically. The most beautiful and unexpected things usually transpire without force. God is so spontaneous.
“Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do the skins will burst, the wine will run out, and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into the new wineskins, and both are preserved.”
I am enveloped in completely new surroundings which I think is symbolic to what God is doing in me. From the climate, to the types of people that fill my daily life, nothing is the same as seasons prior.
I am being pressed in an entirely new environment, and will thus produce a sort of spiritual wine with unprecedented flavor. What God is working up is so sweet and unlike anything I have experienced before. His divine love and beauty are always providing new glimpses into hope. Yes I have seen glimmers of eternal hope, and been given peeks into his glory. What a joy to behold love on the throne.
Yea, the love of God is immeasurable and his beauty cannot be replicated. Even to speak of Him is so humbling.
My surrender is much deeper today that it was yesterday l, because deep is always calling unto to deep and God—to think that He could ever long for anything— is asking for more of me. I do not hesitate the way I did in seasons prior because I understand that “to live is Christ and to die is gain (Philippians 1:21).”
I did not write this to speak in poetic mysteries, but to say that to let go and let life unfold is to really feast. The Holy Spirit is like a current, and to remain in the flow is to move in the direction of life. This is not about duplicating yesterday, because although yesterday’s wine was tasteful and soothing to the soul—what a joy it was, it has spoiled already. Today is what we have. Let us live fully and most presently in today, and be grateful that we can be called sons and daughters. Let us be grateful that we can even utter his name on our lips.
Amen to the highest King.
