And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. – Romans 5:5 NIV
The Holy Spirit is a manifestation of God’s love. He helps us when we are disappointed. He guides us when we are in transition. Our Lord gives us hope.
Instead of focusing on our problems, we can fixate on our blessings.
Today is moving day into my new home in Idaho. It is okay to be busy and have a lot to do. God can always give us just enough strength that we need to get what we need to do done. Amen.
Nevertheless I am continually with you; You hold me by my right hand. You will guide me with your counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. – Psalm 73:23-24 NKJV
Wherever we go, God is with us continually. He is so close that He could hold our hand, the way a parent holds a child’s hand before crossing the street.
The Lord guides our steps if we allow Him to. God’s glory is something that we can look forward to.
Transitions in this life are sometimes hard. We don’t always know how to cope with rapid changes, but God can guide us and strengthen us no matter how displaced we may feel.
Not everything is certain, but one thing is sure–God never changes, and He is here to help us. Amen.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9 NIV
On the eve of a really big move for God’s people, the Lord encouraged Joshua to lead the Israelites to the promised land. The move was, no doubt, a huge transition for many. They were walking into unknown territory, quite literally. They must have been terrified, but the Lord promised to go with them wherever they went. He reminded them not to be afraid, but to be strong and courageous, and to follow the laws that He had lovingly written down for them.
Sometimes we are afraid of change. Transitions frighten us because we don’t know how things will turn out, and we don’t have a crystal ball to predict the future. God knows our future, and He reassures us every step of the way. Amen.
