Transition. | “It’s a new season.”
Generally speaking, when it comes to the seasons we can all agree on this:
In the summer, it’s hot; in the winter, cold. Things bloom in the spring and in autumn they fall.
There’s some sense of security in knowing these things for a fact. But, for some of us, it’s not the seasons that troubles us— it’s the transition.
You see, that’s where the most uncertainty lies. ‘Is it cool enough to wear this or warm enough to leave my extra layer behind?’ Just like we question our steps during seasonal transitions, our spiritual transitions feel a little like this:
| God, what you’re doing is so awesome, but am I ready?
| Your plan is so unbelievable, but am I deserving?
| What You’re unveiling is so powerful, but am I in position?
Even with all this uncertainty lies one truth:
God is God.
He understands the human spirit because He walked in human flesh. He knows we need direction and affirmation and two-way communication to feel deeply connected to Him and our purpose.
So try this for the rest of the week: Ask Jesus “What do you need from me today?”
He may drop someone on your heart (I had a few in mind writing this post) or give you some instruction meant just for you. Take it day by day and during this “transition,” know that regardless of the fruits this season bears or the promises it holds, nothing will detract from who God is or what He’s capable of doing in your life.
God is not seasonal. He does not change; victory or triumph, love or loss. He never fails and He’s looking for some daily time with you to prepare you during the transition into this “new season.”
