We have grown so far from our “origin”, our identity and the way it was meant to, that we need all the energy left to adapt to the unnatural things that are left over. Pushing people into forms and identity that mostly represent abuse and lack of revelation, we violence the deep character of God as He always challenge us to “return” and start over! We always have the tendency to not want to offend people as we leave the old structures which are so incapable of carrying the new and with it, over and over, we keep ourself and other from experience the full flavor of Gods intentions!
I was thinking of Rachel , who toke the “idol” of the old and brought it into the new… What a deep consequence was laid in that decision as Jacob stated to his father-in-law: Anyone with whom you find your gods shall not live!
I know, there is grace as so many of us have had the grace to continue in the old. But mostly we overlooked the real purpose of that grace as it was never meant to keep us where we are but to leave the temporary and move into the eternal overwhelming revelation of His Kingdom here on earth! We were supposed to enter the old environments and with the Love and Grace He gave us, call them out of the egyptian structure and “lead” them into the land of destiny!
So, resetting has all to do with Him, His purpose and honoring Him. When it comes to choosing who to honor, I hope you understand that in real there is no option!
