I am the Lord, and when it is time, I will make these things happen quickly. -Isaiah 60:22 NCV
It is often said that life is a like a game of chess – a strategy board game where every decision made on each move of a chess piece will impact the entire game. And each move will result in different outcome.
By the same token, COVID-19 pandemic has effectuated changes in our lives that require us to adapt to everyday situations and adjust our expectations. Changes is fundamental for us to get our acts together.
So what is God doing right now? It is time to recalibrate our lives and thrive in this season of crisis. We cannot remain where we are and expect to move with God, nor expect Him to move without doing anything.
And to quote someone, ”Stupidity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome.”
We need not be victims of circumstances, though we do not have control over the external, but we have control over what we can do at best, and leave God the rest.
So changes is not necessarily a bad thing- There are times when God need to shake things up to force us to change – He is intimately aware that we will not move forward without a push. So He will put us in situations that will make us uncomfortable (in whatever our area of struggle) to stretch us and make us grow. His ultimate goal isn’t to make our life miserable but to push us to a greater purpose for His higher Glory.
Change, and we be changed too.
When people’s lives please the Lord, even their enemies are at peace with them. – Proverbs 16:7 NLT
So hang on tight, and trust that God will eventually bring something good out of it, one day.
I trust the Lord God to save me, and I will wait for him to answer my prayer. – Micah 7:7 CEV
