I stood and watched as trailer load after trailer load was being filled with rock rich dirt to be taken off site and dumped. Before our new parking lot could be poured, the correct bed had to be prepared. The rock filled soil had to be stripped away to make room for the appropriate fill material and the eventual parking lot.
As the last truck pulled away, I wondered, “What rock filled soil might be present in my life?” Is it possible that God might have to do some spiritual excavation, before I am ready for what's next? Is it possible that He needs to do the same with you?
Ephesians 4:22-24 tell us,
“Change the former way of life that was part of the person you once were, corrupted by deceitful desires. Instead, renew the thinking in your mind by the Spirit and clothe yourself with the new person created according to God’s image in justice and true holiness.” (CEB)
Today, allow God to begin the work of spiritual excavation in your life and experience the new person He desires you to be.
