Establishing habits and routines are great, but there are times in life we need to ‘switch it up’ and consider if our itinerary of sameness needs some revisions. The Bible tells us God is the same yesterday, today and forever but that doesn’t mean He isn’t a God of variety.
God isn’t controlled by habits. He does not run in ruts and He doesn’t always manifest himself or His power the same way every time. Look at how He healed blind people. He spoke to some and to others He touched. To some he rubbed spit mixed with clay on their eyes and in one case He spit right in the eyes. He used different methods but with the same results. They were all healed.
Sometimes in our Christian walk we become blinded to the different ways God works to manifest His power in our life. He calls out to us, “Switch it up and get out of the comfort of your spiritual sameness; I want to add variety to your spiritual walk”. Yet we continue to pin together our spiritual socks, replay the same spiritual broadcasts while we sit in the comfy “I’ve always done it this way” spiritual chair.
Maybe it’s time to consider letting go of the ‘predictable’ and ‘switching it up’. You might be surprised at the method God uses to heal your eyes from the blindness of spiritual sameness.
