Boxes, let’s talk about them. The definition of boxes is a container with a flat base and sides, typically square or rectangular and having a lid. The purpose of a box is to store something. So far I have managed to describe and tell you what a box is and many of you have already checked out of what I’m about to say. Sometimes it’s good to take a look at something so simple to understand what God is trying to speak to you. Humanity are beings of habit and boxes. Our minds are built in such a way that we place specific things in certain boxes…. Culture, mentality, work, etc… it all get’s categorized via boxes. Now being creatures of habit is not a bad thing at all, but an excess of anything is never good. For example, If I am doing something that in the end is harming me, should stick to my ways according to tradition/culture? This is where the box comes in. The box can sometimes be a god before my God. Structure, culture, tradition and the comforts of how we have grown up, raised, taught can sometimes be a god in our own eyes. We can over esteem these things above the voice of God that speaks otherwise. I walk in the ways of those who taught me, poured out their wisdom into me and laid a foundation before me, but when God says move…do I throw my boxes at him and say, this is how I was, raised, taught, etc… even as God fearing Christian’s. I am not against habit, structure, and consistency. What I’m trying to communicate is the fact that Freedom reigns outside of the boxes that we have built and called them holy. The structure is good. Habit and consistency are good. But, how far will you go? If there is something that I feel to be relevant for today is that God is after the box. He wants to break the box and the structure that we have put Him in. For far too long have I stored God in the boundaries, structures, and habits of my life and giving Him no Freedom to be Free! It would be a lie if I were to tell you that I have figured it out because I believe I will spend the rest of my life unpacking my life’s boxes. I have been asking the Lord recently to reveal to me the area’s in my life that are boxed up. I challenge you to ask this question and to wrestle with God. God does not belong in my boxes and boundaries.
