Hello Kathryn,


Spring is here and my kids want to extend their spring break to another week. "Mom, I don’t want to go to school, can’t we just stay home," they asked. This morning I had to pull them out of bed to get dressed for school. We can easily get comfortable on vacation. No early bedtimes and for me no lunches to fix each night.

But comfort can quickly turn into complacency, especially in our Spiritual lives. Just when we get comfortable in a certain place, and we feel like we know everything about this certain assignment and the challenge is no longer there God can move us to a new place. He is constantly rearranging things and progressing things according to His sovereign will. Often it is us who complain and quite frankly whine and pine about the change. The word tells us that we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. The change is for our good and what is ahead is far greater than we can even imagine or think.

However, we love to pamper our flesh and resist change. So much that we murmur and complain against God much like the Israelites did in the wilderness. We may physically move with the change, but our hearts and mind are loathing the comfort of what used to be.  We are focusing more on how things were rather than embracing what is new. All the while we are offering God partial obedience. We are physically being obedient, but our hearts and minds are far from honoring God because deep down inside we long for comfort rather than conformation to the image of Christ. Partial obedience is still disobedience.

We cannot conform to the image of Christ and be comfortable at the same time. Christ will upset your apple cart (your flesh or your own will). Conforming to the image of Christ will require change. It will require surrendering your will to His wholly to glorify God in the transformation.

I pray that in this season of change, you embrace the will of God.

Until next time, 

Are you in a season of change? If so, can I pray for you? Email me here.
