How-To Take The Risk Of Transition
Following Jesus and saying yes to His transitions in life, is one of the best and most thrilling adventures we can take up here on earth.
Life with Jesus is filled with the biggest blessings, unexpected miracles, beautiful healing and answered bold prayers.
But it is also a risk.
How do we jump into transition knowing these risks?
Over the month of August, I am going to share with you seven reasons, based on biblical truth and my own journey, why we can be confident to take that leap into a new season of transition.
Alright, let’s dive into reasons five and six today.
5. We take the risk of because transition will transform us into something we could never have hoped for or imagined in our wildest dreams.
“Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.” - Ephesians 3:20
6. We take the risk because we know the transition will position us, align us, create deeper perseverance and character in us, and reveal even more of His love to us.
“Even in times of trouble we have a joyful confidence, knowing that our pressures will develop in us patient endurance. And patient endurance will refine our character, and proven character leads us back to hope.” Romans 5:3-4

God, help me to not just endure transition but to consider it an honor, because I know the result it produces. Help me to consider it a privilege when You ask me to make a move, transition, change in my life, even when it creates strain, adaptive energy loss, and natural tension in me. Give me the endurance to persevere. Give me persevering faith.
Thank you that when transition starts, I get to go into a deeper place in my knowing You, from glory to glory. Help me to see You in the midst of all the change. Give me faith for what I will be moving into, as I sometimes have to give up so much while I am moving out of something to attain it.
Thank You that part of You being the God who breaks through is that my transition is for something huge! You have my best interests in Your heart, and You will use this transition to position me, align my life, create deeper perseverance and character in me, and reveal even more of Your love to me. Thank You that understanding You in the midst of transition will help me to love those around me more.
God, as You bring transition in my life, help me to hold onto everything that can go with me into the new season. Also, help me to let go of anything that is not for this new time.
Help me to love the change Your transition brings and to not compare it to other transitions You didn’t initiate in my life. Help me to be one who is so willing to change that I become one who can help change and reform systems, structures, and the lives of those around me with the grace Jesus carried when He was on earth.
