God is always in control, even when we don’t understand the why of something.
Change is a lifelong process of challenges, we must walk through to know the will of God for our lives.
God use challenges , whether it’s a person or group of people, place (work) or things (traffic, long lines) to help produce more fruit in us–love (giving), joy (gladness), peace (free from worry and fear), long suffering (patience), gentleness (kindness), goodness (generosity), faith (dependability), meekness (gentleness) and temperance (self-control). Fruit, as well as, our spiritual maturity takes time to grow and mature. (shock face)
Sometimes change is about adapting without complaining.
Sometimes, it is, what it is, keep moving forward.
Sometimes, we just aren’t ready for the next step.
Sometimes, we allow the “what if” to stop us.
Sometimes, our pride and/or stubbornness blocks our fruit from developing.
Sometimes, our free will to choose keeps us stuck.
Sometimes, we just lack encouragement. Remember Romans 8-28 says “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
So change is the test to walk through challenges, by faith, trusting God without complaining.
The not complaining part, can be a retest many times before we mature in self-control.
When we surrender to the Holy Spirit, change and/or challenges become easier to walk through.
Some days can be just brutal, as soon as we recognize a challenge, let us breathe and praise The Lord that this too shall pass and The Holy Spirit will lead us all the way through.
