What if being “blessed” means we might LOSE some friends and have to MOVE from where we used to be?
WHAT??? That doesn’t sound like much of a blessing!
But, God wants to position us WHERE we need to be. He knows exactly WHO we need to be around in order for us to succeed to the level that He has planned for us.
So, what initially looks like a LOSS to us may actually be a huge GAIN!
God told Jacob to leave his job, his in-laws, and his friends and pack up and MOVE.
Then the LORD said to Jacob, “Go back to the land of your fathers and to your relatives, and I will be with you.” Genesis 31:3 (NIV)
What seems like a big step BACKWARD, might be God’s way of making room for NEW friends and getting us to the NEW place that He has prepared for us!
Movin’ On Up!
You know, God’s way of promotion probably won’t look ANYTHING like we anticipated.
But if we’ll move in HIS direction, what looks like REVERSE is always going to be a supernatural leap FORWARD!
Moving WITH God is always #WorthIt, no matter WHO or WHAT we have to leave behind!
Prayer For Today
“God, give me the courage to move how You want me to move, where You want me to move, when You want me to move and with whom You want me to move. I trust Your movements, God! In Jesus’ Name.”
Has God ever asked you to make a move that looked like loss in the moment, but in the end was gain? Share with us!
