I Corinthians 13:11 (KJV) When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
When was the last time you tried to break a habit, an old idea, a negative behavior pattern, or an unhealthy emotional recording from the past? It’s not easy! Even though you know you need to, even though you know it would be a good thing to do and will result in a healthier or happier state, it’s just a lot of pain. And you’d rather live in the comfort of your misery, or so you think. I know what I am talking about on this one people of God.
We often react like toddlers whose parents are taking the bottle away. Tantrums, meltdowns, and tears always seem to be a part of the process. But the reality is we are not toddlers, and are to be child like (Luke 18:17) with God not childish!
What are you holding on to? What from the past are you hanging on to that you need to let go of? You know the things that tear you down and keep you from emotional health, but you just hang on to. This is serious stuff folks!
How many times has God given you the opportunity to give those things up because they keep you isolated and stuck, even poisoning your spirits? But it means letting go. It takes a willing spirit. But you can walk in the victory that the Lord has already given you, if you choose it. It’s your time, choose it today!
