Too many of God’s people are living frustrated and questioning the Word, will and wisdom of God. This season we are in has the world shaking, worrying and wondering what’s next? There should be an amazing difference between the church and the world. That difference should be that we are not moved by what we are in because we understand how things come and go and that no matter what, God is good!

If you haven’t noticed… seasons bring change and change means things in our life move in and move out. When a building is being constructed, there is a season where large cranes are necessary to move the beams of steel and prepare for the next stage in the process. When the crane has completed its work it is moved out of the way for other necessary pieces of equipment to come in and fulfill their purpose in the project.

The best way to not be shaken is to understand how God moves things and people in and out of our lives to fulfill what He started in you. Where we get discouraged is when change comes and we grow lonely and discouraged because what we held on to has now been replaced with something else. Never forget, change to us is progress in God’s mind. Don’t ever grow so attached to something that when it’s moved out you sit and cry and lose vision because of it. Remember you are the only thing in the world God cares about. I know you’re thinking… He cares about everyone, this is true. But for you to make it to the next season in a supernatural peace you must begin to believe His focus is on you alone. You are special and your success is His pleasure.

Today, start thanking the Lord for what He has brought into your life and what He has removed. Remember… God is not about decreasing you, He’s the God of increase so what is leaving today is making room for what your tomorrow needs to make your life even greater.

Jeremiah 29:11
I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for.
