In the grand scheme of this world as we know it, basically there are two major camps of people; those who influence and those who are being influenced. Now is the time to decide in what camp we want to pitch our tents! What people group do we want to associate with?
I think sometimes we tend to follow others because we don’t have a clear vision of who we are in the first place. The uniqueness with which we are meant to walk is so often discouraged by conventional ideals to homogenize our personalities so others can feel more comfortable. It’s the same notion which took over restaurants and stores. Make everything the same in every city so people can feel comfortable in knowing they don’t have to experience new choices. Over simplified concept but you get the idea.
Conventional thought must be displaced with “new thinking” that anything is possible and we should expect that “new things” will happen!
I am looking for a generation who will not stop at the edge of the envelope and play it safe. We should be ashamed to seek safe if we serve God almighty. He alone is our safety and He draws us into the great unknown. Let’s stop holding back to see what others are going to do and jump forward into the “what are we going to do for God!”
