Transition and Change
Kathy—Transition and change and growth and maturity can feel as drastic and unsettling as war; and the long-standing plans and purposes of God for our generation involve transition and change and growth and maturity. Our goal is NOT to change for change’s sake, but to obey God and let the word of God have effect. If traditions of men are challenged, let them fight for themselves. When Gideon tore down the altar of Baal, the men of the city said to his father, “Bring out your son that he may die, for he has torn down the altar of Baal!” But his dad said, “Are you Baal’s deliverers? If he is a god, let him contend for himself! If any traditions of men prove to be God-ordained, they will live. Meanwhile let’s not be distracted from obedience to give them CPR or keep them on a breathing machine. We can pray for discernment and wisdom so that we can cut through the fog of emotions and opinions that arise during transition and change and growth and maturity and war. God’s wisdom will keep us from standing against the changes that He is bringing to His church and our lives. Jam. 1:5 “But if any of you lack wisdom, you should pray to God, who will give it to you; because God gives generously and graciously to all.” (GNB)
