Change! Why? Because God’s Knows What Is Best For You.
Author: Pastor Pat Aman
“Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran. And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.”
Genesis 12:1-5 KJV
WOW! When I think of change, I immediately think of Abraham.
God told Abraham just to pack up and leave. Leave Family. Leave Friends. Leave his home. Lead his land. Leave everything he has built.
As I see our daughters now grown and on their own, I really have a hard time. They are slowly leaving from under our, or I might say MY, protected wings. I really think it is harder on a mother than a father. Maybe because we protected them and carried them inside of us right next to our hearts. You have heard the old saying, “only a child has heard their mama’s heart from the inside.” So, I now say, “I watch my heart from the outside, when I look at them.
We are so proud of them, but we know we have to let go. We know that God will bring someone special into their lives one day and we will have to share a piece of our and their heart with them.
I pray daily that God will send a sold out man of God into their lives. A man that will have to go through God’s heart to get to their heart.
God has blessed us with a extended family and we are just as protective of them.
We pray for all our children everyday.
Change happens to all of us. But, we need to realize that change even though maybe hard, it is good. Change is God’s way of cleansing us and growing us. If there was not change, then we will become stale. And then we will burn out, rotten and begin to stink.
As Joe and I have been in the ministry 40 years together, we have seen changes.
Some change was very hard. I remember leaving the church we raised our family, and we still have so many good friends there, but, without change, we would have never met so many new and wonderful friends.
We must remember God is always in control. And, the only time when things fall apart is when we go our on way and not God’s.
As long as we keep our heart and eyes in God, we will stay in His will for our lives.
CHANGE! Yes, it can be hard, but if God is in control it is just a new road to walk for Him and His glory.
Change is God’s way of saying, “hey, I got this, now walk through this new door. I have already gone before you and laid the map out. You will not get lost . I will bless you. ”
Blessings, Love and Prayers,
