Sometimes we’ve got to let go of ‘what got us here’ in order to enter a new season of even greater fruitfulness.
Peter had to revolutionise his thinking in a single day, as God brought a paradigm shift that challenged him to the core. Thankfully, his immediate acceptance of Gods revelation caused him to let go of ‘what got him here’ so he could take hold of a new way of thinking that opened the flood gates for exponential increase and expansion of the gospel:
Peter told them, “You know it is against our laws for a Jewish man to enter a Gentile home like this or to associate with you. But God has shown me that I should no longer think of anyone as impure or unclean. So I came without objection as soon as I was sent for.” – Acts 10:28-29 (NLT)
What ways of thinking might God be calling you to get rid of? It may have got you this far, but like Peter there could be a season of even greater fruitfulness as you let go of the past in order to take hold of the future!
