Navigating Transition Pt.2

Navigating Transition Pt. 2

As we begin part two of this series, please continue to keep the three principles for looking at God's Word from a Kingdom perspective in mind. God's Ultimate Purpose, Law of Dominion and God's Purpose for Revelation
Another problem you may run into when you are going through transition is:
  • You are distracted.                    
Luke 10:40 AMP "But Martha was very busy and distracted with all of her serving responsibilities; and she approached Him and said, “Lord, is it of no concern to You that my sister has left me to do the serving alone? Tell her to help me and do her part.” 
Luke 11:17 "But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth" 
Luke 11:34 BLB "Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eye is clear, your whole body is also light; but when it is evil, your body is also dark."
James 1:8 AMP "being a double-minded man, unstable and restless in all his ways [in everything he thinks, feels, or decides].

You must be able to stay focused on your purpose and assignment even when you are transitioning. The enemy will try to use distractions to throw you off course. Stick to God's plan for your life. That way, no matter what comes up, you will still be on course.

Another concern you may have is:
  • You are concerned about timing.
Ecclesiastes 9:11 NLT "I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner doesn't always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn't always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don't always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being in the right place at the right time.
Ecclesiastes 11:4 NLT "Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest"

Do not allow the fact that you are going through transition stop you from pursuing the purpose, dream and vision God has for your life. There is never going to be a perfect time to step out in faith. You just have to do it. And stepping out in faith does not mean operating with using God's wisdom. Use wisdom while walking by faith.

Psalms 33:18-22 "Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee." 
Romans 9:16 ESV "So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy. " 

Despite our failings and inabilities, God is faithful. We just have to be willing vessels for His use.
Isaiah 55:11 "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Hebrews 10:23 "Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

God's Word cannot fail. You can forfeit and give up, but that is a choice that you have to make. If you decide to stand on God's Word, depend on His wisdom for guidance and refuse to give in, then despite the transition you are going through, you will make it to your destiny.
