CIRCLES OF LIFE - YOU WILL KEEP GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES UNTIL YOU CHANGE DIRECTIONS, CHANGE YOUR COURSE OR BREAK FREE!
The other day, I was enjoying one of my favorite movies. As a writer, I am always on duty, and I am always looking for the next message from the Lord, with pen in hand. I get a lot of these catchy titles from the Lord and what to write to enable the people of God to grasp what God is showing them or the point that He wants to get across.
Anyway, in the movie, there is a scene that the Lord had me to focus on. He said, "That is what many of my people are doing this very day. Okay, so let me set the scene for you. This man was in the Sanity Ward of a Turkish prison. He was not as insane as everyone else in that ward but he was getting there. And the longer he remained there, the more he began to look and act like the others.
There was a pole in the center of this room and about 20 of the insane prisoner would just walk around this pole going clockwise. All day long, they walked in a clockwise motion around the pole. They never spoke and they never changed directions. The new guy finally decided that he was going to try to change the direction that they were walking. He got in that circle and started walking in the opposite direction. They didn't pay him any attention, they stayed on course. At one point, he even tried to physically turn them around, but they just didn't get it.
Today God says to you, "I am trying to turn you around but you just don't get it. You keep going around and around in circles. You just don't get it." You put God in a box when you have the mindset that you have always done things like this or like that. God wants you to change course, change the directions that you are going, because you are headed for a big fall. If you do not change your ways you will only have gone around in circles, ending up in the same position (state of mind) that you started, when you first got saved. If you don't change course, you will began to look and act just like the Christians that only remember that they are saved on Sundays.
Some of you repeat the same prayer (repetitive prayer almost like you have it written down on a piece of paper. You sing the same songs and say to yourself, I've been doing it this way all my life, why change now? Why do something new? You want God to do something new in your life, but you keep God in a box. CHANGE COURSE MY SISTER, CHANGE COURSE!
Heavenly Father, I thank you for loving me enough to speak to my heart today. Father, I pray that you forgive me for my sins in the name of Jesus. Father, I realize that I have not changed since the day that I first received you as my Lord and Savior and I am praying now Father that you help me to change the course and direction that my life is going. Father, I do not want to remain in the same state, day after day. My desire is that I get to know you more intimately through prayer and worship. Today Lord, I am changing direction to move in the way that you need me to move, in Jesus name, Amen!
