#4101 – Shifting Shapes

Good morning people who let God empower them in every season

Many shapes are set shapes; they cannot change; they are what they are.

Sometimes we see ourselves the same way.

The problem is that sometimes we limit ourselves – or more to the point, we limit God in us – because we narrow our lives down to a boxed-in, safe and clearly defined shape.

Now I am not talking about being something different to God’s design and intention. We are who God created us to be!

But in different seasons, Father empowers us to be what is needed in that season.

Paul put it this way:

1 Corinthians 9:22b NIV …I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.

This is not a violation of God’s design or a compromise of character by Paul. This is a profound truth that we can be and do whatever God needs us to be and do, so that His kingdom comes into a situation, and so that He alone gets the glory!

If you can’t do something, great – that’s an opportunity for God to be seen!
