Devotional: A Message From The Stick Insect

Christian Devotion about not conforming to the world



"Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]." Romans 12:2 (AMPC)

A few years ago, I was given this vision from out of the blue.

I was just making the bed one day when, all of a sudden, I had a picture in my mind of a forest. I was standing in the forest and my eyes were drawn to a fallen log. As I looked at this log, I saw a stick insect moving across it. The moment I saw the stick insect move, the words came, "Just like this stick insect is on the log, so is the church. It has blended and adapted to its surroundings and environment so much so that it's getting harder to see true Christianity." I thought, 'Wow!' Then, as I was marvelling at this vision and what God said to me, there came another voice (seemingly from without), saying, "You can't tell many Christians about this because they're not going to like it." I listened to that voice and didn't really share it with people. Over the years there's been the odd confirmation of this through various things I've heard and observed. It was around a couple of years after the vision that I shared it here. I believe that Satan was the one who whispered in my ear that day, not to say anything. I don't know why I did not see that before.

I believe God wanted me to share this so we can all heed to this message and conform to God's standards, not to the world's standards.
