Do you get discouraged by today’s challenges and forget the reality of what God is doing in your life?

You might just be in a season of change. You may have entered something new, which could be a transition period. 

I want to tell you to avoid getting STUCK in transition. The story isn’t done!

It is not uncommon to start something new with excitement and then, over time, lose your joy and the enthusiasm you started with.

Challenging moments can easily use up our launch adrenaline.

And suddenly, our weaknesses show up instead of our strengths.

Becoming a parent, starting a new job, and taking on new responsibilities all often have this trajectory. 

Whatever transition you are experiencing, don’t let it weigh you down on the inside.

God has given you grace for this season – the empowerment through His strength by His Spirit to handle it with wisdom.

The Israelites needed to remember where they were. Yes, they were in the wilderness, in transition, but they forgot they were in the will of God. 

And when you are in the will of God, there is provision. 

When you act in obedience, there are blessings. 

Remember what God is doing in your life! 

Every challenge is an opportunity for growth and your strengths to become even stronger.

So, take what is bogging you down inwardly and shake it off. Relieve yourself by remembering God has a purpose, plan, and provision for this moment. 

If the Israelites just reminded themselves of all God was doing for them, even previously done, it would have saved them a lot of energy and time.

Remember, it’s just a journey to the destination He is taking you to. 

2 Corinthians 12:9 says, “‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
