Romans 8:28 “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.”
Change is something that we all go through. We have big changes in our lives and we have little changes. Sometimes God changes our temperment, our views, and our heart or maybe he calls us to change our lives completely by relocating us to another place. Some of us are set in our ways and we can’t imagine change in any way. There are some things I don’t want to change myself but the fact is in life we all go through some type of change and it affects us in some way.
Ephesians 2:10 “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
Sometimes we can’t see Gods plan and sometimes we will never know why He worked in a certain way. Change can often be very hard. But in the end, we learn from these changes and they always make us stronger. I’ve learned that good things wait for me every time God asks me to step outside my comfort zone. We can always look back and see how He walked us through it and the blessing we received from it.
Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in The Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”
We will probably never understand why God changes our lives in different directions. Change will happen and in the end, all we can do is trust the Lord and allow His moving and leading. He always has a plan for our lives to make us the best that we can be. Ultimately, He is good and faithful and in adversity he will provide for us what we need to survive. He does not always change our painful circumstances; however, He sustains us through them. Ultimately, it has to be Gods will over personal choice. I encourage you to be open to any changes that God will call for you to make. It will always make your life better.
Deuteronomy 31:8 “It is The Lord who goes before you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”
