It is not easy to be redefined or repositioned because change stirs up re-evaluation and self-examination that shakes our self-image. If I have to change positions or titles, does that mean I was wasting my time before? Not necessarily. Holding a place until a season is fulfilled is part of the destiny process. Have I failed and therefore have to be replaced? No, being repositioned by the Spirit of God is about growth and effectualness, not failure. Am I being demoted instead of promoted? Paradigms and experience and old models may say “Yes,” but if God is truly in charge, He is always about maturity and increase. We can trust His title changes and redefining to position us for excellence and promotion in His Kingdom. (Tenth excerpt from Kathy’s article “Fresh Obedience”)
It is not easy to be redefined or repositioned when there is no model for it. Without a model, there is no guarantee that the upheaval in our lives is worth it! We are much more secure when we have a contemporary model to go by, but when God is building a model, it might start with you! You might be the one building a boat before anyone even grasps the concept of rain or flooding. You might be the one climbing out of the boat and walking on water. That means you are the one who must be willing to make mistakes or face the criticism and ridicule that reformation requires. (Ninth excerpt from Kathy’s article “Fresh Obedience”)

This one is titled: “Don’t give up, don’t be impatient” Psalm 27:14, TPT –
“Here’s what I’ve learned through it all: don’t give up; don’t be impatient; be entwined as one with the Lord.”
