Moving in Changes

Posted on August 5, 2015 at 4:53 PM
8.5.15     Moving in Change  

Change.  How well do you manage change?  I suppose it is dependent upon the nature of the change.  Some changes we manage easily and without a great deal of thought, and then some changes are apprehensive and difficult for us to accept or adjust to.
Ordinary every day changes come and go, and mostly without notice. A change in our schedule, an unexpected duty, an unexpected visitor. I think the reason these types of changes are so easy is because they do not cost us as much, there is not an uncontrollable difference in our life.
Unexpected and dramatic changes are much more difficult. These are life changing and costly to us. Another person's actions or decision can alter the course of our life without much control for us, and without our agreement. These changes we want to resist and to stand against. These changes can be filled with emotions and fears, and even dread. Changes like death, loss of employment, divorce, a child leaving, or family issues, are all out of our control and cause anxieties and uncertainties in us. 
Even good changes can most often bring fears and insecurities of whether we can measure up to or accomplish what is required of us; a new job, new marriage, new family, etc.
As Believers in Christ we must be able to have enough Faith in Him to adapt to whatever change our day may hold.  We must be able to believe that our Lord is in control of all things that creep in, or barge into, our lives on a daily bases.  He knows.  He is not caught unawares.
What is the point of all these changes?  No matter if they seem good or bad, these changes (challenges) are designed by Him to draw us closer to Him, to show us another side of our God (healer, comforter, provider, defender, etc.) and to grow us up in Him.  These are trials and temptations  designed by the Master to mature us and to get us out of our own agendas and our own ways and thoughts.
We serve a GOOD God, and we must remember that.  Do not be resistant.
Trust and obey.  If you do, you just well may miss the calling on your life or a
great blessing designed to turn your life around.  Have Faith in God. 
He always has a plan and He always equips us for what is needed!  He never leaves us nor forsakes us. Ever.

- Pastor Sandi

Ecclesiastes 3:1   "For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:"
Philippians 4:6-7    "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Mark 11:22    "Have faith in God," Jesus answered."
1 Thessalonians 5:11-16-18   "Be joyful always, pray continuously, give thanks in all circumstances for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
