Is the Thought of Change Freaking You Out?

Frightened Girl XSmallSome of us get freaked out by CHANGE. Transitions are tough — the known to the unknown,  the predictable to the unpredictable, our comfort zone to uncharted territory.

But without change we’ll never grow. Without change we’ll never be stretched  to see how far we can reach. Without change we’ll get stuck in a rut. (Someone once said, “The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.”)

A change of scenery can be as good as a rest. A change of residence, even a change of work or ministry can be the means for personal development.

But I’m not talking about change for change’s sake. It’s not time to whimsically change marriage partners or trade in our children.

But certain things may need to change. The apostle Paul says,  “put off … the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind,  and that you put on the new man….” (Ephesians 4:22, 23) We are hopefully  being transformed  from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 3:18) 

Is the prospect of change freaking you out? Trust the Rock — the One who is the SAME yesterday, today and forever.

Has God been stirring up your nest? Is He challenging you to step out and spread your wings? If you’ve really heard from God (and you’re getting good counsel from mature and trusted friends)  grip His hand. This may be your golden opportunity to soar to places and heights you never imagined.

  1. Change is surely challenging. Want a harder challenge? Pray that God will send you into a difficult or painful situation.

  2. and oh so true, Wayne Hilsden… a change is good as a rest! from Glory unto Glory, and thumbs up to that!

    The Lord has being, changing me so much on the last years… The funny part is that the most drastic and sudden changes, was to me more peaceful, and the relatively smaller changes was more scary. I think the decisions I have to take by my self, tends to let me more insecure than the decisions that I am totally sure that the Lord is leading.
    I know both of the situations are important, sometimes our Father will lead us by the hand, other times He will let it go for us to move in a straight pass. That is time for us to show what we have learned and to have faith that the hand will catch us when we need it.

  4. Pure Glory says:

    Change is good but at times we get so used to our dysfunction, we hold onto to it rather than letting go. When we finally realize we don’t have to remain in the mess, we release and let God help us.
