Did you know that the hermit crab looks for a shell that fits him, then lives in it 'til he outgrows it' After that he has to scurry along the ocean floor and find a bigger one; it's a process that repeats itself throughout his entire life. Are there things in your life that no longer fit you but you can't let go just because it's easy and familiar? David said, 'You...freed me when I was hemmed in and enlarged me when I was in distress.' To really grow in God you've got to be willing to get out of your comfort zone and deal with a little 'distress'. What worked for you yesterday may not work today. Maybe it's a club you've outgrown, a relationship you need to think about or a behaviour you need to change. Whatever it is, never become so 'settled' that you can't let go and move on when you need to. Sometimes it's good to be patient and see things through but there are times when those things are holding you back because you've outgrown them. Instead of hanging in and trying harder, at certain points you have to stop and ask yourself, 'Is this situation good for me'? If you're not sure, ask God for 'an understanding mind [to]...know the difference between...right and...wrong' 1 Kings 3:9. (His Word says, 'If you need wisdom...ask [Him], and He will [gladly] give it to you' James 1:5. (When God says it's time to move on, it's because there's another shell out there that will fit you even better but you can't live in the new until you leave the old one. So how about it; are you ready for bigger things?
