Musing: Looking for God
You probably have already discovered this God isn’t speaking the way he has spoken for years. There has been a shift in how God is doing things. If we are looking for the Holy Spirit voice or direction for the most part it won’t be through his past methodology. It is part of the word from Joshua 3:4 “for you have not passed this way before.”

Since the beginning of this year (2020) I have seen God do the most unusual things. It seems that he is breaking all the old-paradigms. He is not in the obvious. If we look for God it what was you’re going to be very disappointed and frustrated.
He is the God outside of our boxes. That is a lesson we should learn from Israel when Jesus started his ministry. The priests and the majority of Israel didn’t recognize God working through Jesus because it was different from what they were familiar with.
Here’s a good word “lets blow up our boxes.”

The next verse begins with "But keep a distance..."
