Who Is God To You

Our lives are filled with many people. Friends, family, acquaintances, co-workers etc. Each are known to us by their names whether it be the names their parents gave them or some other description that helps us know and remember who they are and how they fit into our lives.

Isn’t it amazing that God, our wonderful, personal God, fits so many roles in our lives. Depending on the season we are in, He can be our Deliverer, Prince of Peace, our comforter. He can be our refuse, our source of strength, our power, our conscience.

God is all things to us.

 Isn’t it wonderful to know that when we are feeling rejected, tattered and torn by the world that God, our Wonderful Counselor is always there. He has always existed and will always exist. God is our eternal source of strength.

Isn’t it wonderful to know that when we are feeling defeated and discouraged that God, our Mighty God has promised that with Him, all things are possible.

Isn’t it wonderful that when we feel alone and lonely that God, our Everlasting Father reminds us that we are not set aside, we are set apart. For to be set aside is to be rejected but to be set apart is to belong to the family of God.

Isn’t it wonderful to know that above all else and above all other names, God is simply the Great I Am.

Talk to God on a personal level, let Him reveal who He wants to be for you.

When It Is Time For Change

A Time For Everything
Part Four
A Time to Transition
For some change is exciting, easy and keeps our lives interesting. For the rest of us the unknown is scary, intimidating, and way out of our comfort zone.
However, there is one thing change is and that is inevitable.
When you come to the realization (whether it be comfortable or not) that God is telling you this season is over and it is time to uproot from the field where you have been planted, there is one way to make the transition easier to tolerate.
Remember that God is the Alpha and Omega. Isn’t that a comforting thought? God is the beginning of everything we experience and God is the ending of all we experience. Common sense would tell you that means He is all throughout the middle of our transitions also.
Let’s look at what the word transition means. To transition is to change, evolve, move, and shift or to have a conversion.
That could full well mean that to have an effective God driven transition there may be areas in our lives that we need to rework if we see we are not on track with what God has planned for us.

The only way to determine this is to seek God in a humble, submissive and true way. Consider where you have been and where God is leading you and decide to submit to His destination.
It is during this inner study that you may discover that God’s plan is far different from anything you were considering. It is also safe to bet that the work God is doing in you is far more exquisite than anything you ever imagined.
Go ahead, Just Do It, if God is in control it will be better than you ever imagined.
