When Outsourcing is your ONLY Option…

Outsourcing was my only option seeing as to how I lacked the capability of leading myself. We know, according to Ephesians 4:11, “It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for the works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.” For my train of thought to be renewed I had to outsource from my company “Self” and seek those who have been walking in their authority to assist with the renewal of my mind. Learning to think the way Christ does and letting go of old thought patterns is a process that cannot be done alone. I’ve learned through many haughty decisions based off of wrong thinking that it was time to outsource.

Yes, there are those basic decisions that I can make alone but the weightier decisions required the mind of Christ.  I know that my thoughts aren’t his thoughts nor my ways his ways, but he did say let this mind that is in Christ Jesus be in you. This tells me that it is possible, yet not by my own merit. I’ve struggled with this form of outsourcing for years now simply because it requires I give up my self-proclaimed right of control.  I was losing time, money, joy and peace because of my unwillingness to seek wise council, in this case my company need not only to outsource but to close down all together; by crucifying flesh daily.

In this case we need to seek wise counsel as a form of outsourcing, reading the word and trusting God and not our own thoughts and methods.  You may not be dealing with self as it relates to control the way that I do, maybe its loving that family member or spouse the way God commands you. Because he loves you he is saying that the time is now to outsource and look for those who love him completely to help you stay in the process of renewing your mind and simply learning to receive from others.
