Starting a Series on Transition
Some of us like adjust. Other individuals do not. If I told you I’m nevertheless driving my 2008 Tundra—and satisfied about it—you may guess which side of the spectrum I’m on. I’ve frequently thought—as I drive a distinctive rental automobile nearly weekly—a law really should be passed stating that all automobile manage panels have to be the similar! I’m not crazy about adjust. I have discovered, having said that, that a willingness to adjust is paramount if we are to succeed in life. Not so significantly with autos, of course—I may well drive my Tundra for 10 far more years—but absolutely with life’s seasons and course modifications. I have to be prepared, and I have to also possess a particular level of transitional capabilities. The similar is accurate of spiritual occasions and seasons. The Church is not normally prepared to shift into new seasons as Holy Spirit moves us from glory to glory, nor adept at performing so. Having said that, developing in revelation and fruitfulness have to involve transitioning into distinctive mindsets, procedures, techniques, and even expectations. As opposed to the Jews in Christ’s day who couldn’t adjust their preconceived suggestions and expectations, we have to discern the occasions and shift particular facets of our considering in order to remain in step with Holy Spirit. Adjust is inevitable.
“Remember not the former items, nor look at the items of old. Behold, I am performing a new issue now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:18-19 ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Intercede for the Physique of Christ to recognize the occasions and the season we are in.
- Invite the Lord to deal with you in any region of your life exactly where you resist adjust, thereby, possibly, resisting Him.
- Pray that the Church will appear forward to adjust in the planet about us, seeing possibilities that bring harvest, fresh revelation, boldness, and blessing.
- Rejoice in advance for the coming glory and fruitfulness of the new season.
- Intercede for our nation in advance of the risky moments that can happen in seasons of transition. When the old clashes against the new, there is significantly turmoil till absolutely everyone sees that it is going to be okay.
A prayer you can pray:
God, we, the Physique of Christ, ask You to open up the eyes of our spirits to see what it is that You are performing in this time and in this season. We really feel the tension and have not recognized how to operate with it. We lengthy to really feel the excitement of a new and superb issue coming, but, frequently, we really feel worry and trepidation. We, largely, do not like adjust, and we know we will probably have to embrace adjust. There is a thing so new coming. The nation appears new. There are new suggestions becoming espoused all about, and we do not like significantly of what we see and hear. We really feel like we’re in a war zone, at times. We really are, if we look at that there is a war among heaven and hell going on for the future of U.S. and for souls. Lord, repair our eyes on Jesus! You will take every single challenge and turn it about to be a blessing. The harvest fields are white! We get to see a new wave of Your Glory and the supernatural reaping of a harvest, exactly where angels are certainly involved! So significantly fruit of all the prayers we have prayed for so lengthy! That really should be worth facing the unknown! Lord, minister to the worry in us, for the reason that we do not want to be identified resisting You, as the Pharisees did when Jesus showed up. We want to move with You, Holy Spirit. We pray that You would smooth out the rough locations that are coming, as old mindsets and demonic plans collide with Your Truth and accurate justice. In Jesus’ name, amen.
God is performing a new issue in America and we, the Church, will embrace it and hang on for the ride!
