Faith to Endure Change

Faith to Endure Change

There are two sets of people in the world. Those who are constantly seeking a new thing, a new beginning, or new opportunities. These people are always seeking ways to improve their lives. They seek to live a more comfortable, stress free, and a more financially stable life. They want to find companionship or strengthen the relationship they already have. They want to travel more, work less. Possibly advance on their jobs or see growth in their ministries. Every day they seek to go higher, press further, expand their territory, their influence, their power and for some, even their presence. 

Then there are those who have been thrown into the arena of change, forced to begin again. Maybe after the death of a spouse, the loss of a relationship, the termination of a job, or bouncing back from a sickness or disability. For these people, a new beginning presents many unplanned or unsought after challenges. The intense frustration with the fact that you didn’t ask for any of this creates unwarranted stress. Making the necessary adjustments, facing the disbelief or chaos that comes with change, counteracting the denial of your new reality and accepting it, is easier said than done.

The good news in both situations is, with Christ we never move alone. We have a guaranteed promise, that He will never leave us nor forsake us. God has promised to walk with us and to be our guide and our compass. Whether it is your desire or if it has been pressed upon you, rest assured, God is in control. He has paved the path for your success. Don’t look at the situation, look at your God that controls the situation. Know His voice above the voices in your head or around you. 

No matter what it looks like, nothing is hopeless with God. He is a God of new beginnings! With every new beginning, whether by choice or a life happenstance, there will be challenges, periods of darkness and doubt. But hold on, you will eventually see the clear path in the wilderness. Sooner than you think, you will drink from the river in the desert.
Remind yourself of what He’s done before and be confident that He who begun a good work in you, will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
For every advancement or adjustment, just move forward and release your faith in that God is about to do a “New Thing”.
