“Are you in a time of transition right now?”
Transition means change—it signifies that there is something to leave behind and something to look forward to.
As ‘middle ground’, transition can be a time of frustration and waiting. It may also be a period of grieving for that which we leave behind. When we do not see the future clearly, our faith is being challenged and our trust in God tested.
Your Heavenly Father wants to encourage and empower you. He has you in the palm of His hand.
Isaiah 49:16 (NIV)See, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands; your walls are ever before Me.
God is with you and for you. He knows the future and has already mapped out and lined up what needs to take place in order for you to reach your destination.
Acts 1:3 (NIV)After His suffering, (Jesus) presented Himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that He was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.
Jesus used the time between His resurrection and ascension to prepare His followers for what was to come. This period contains three vital lessons for us about the value that God places on transition and I will look at these over the next three days.
