In this month's blog of encouragement I want to share some revelatory insight, practical steps and answer questions within this blog that you may have about this topic titled, "A Place Called Transition."
In this month of October I really felt the Lord that this month is not only a month of acceleration, alignment, and refreshing, but also a month where we are transitioning from one place to another. Many are about to find themselves into their new assignment and into the new place after the dust settles. I'm going to unpack this topic in this article just enough for you to be able to absorb, marinate and sit on the word.
I want to share with you and touch on the topic of 'transition.' What do you do when you are in transition? What to expect during transition? What is the Lord doing in you while you are in transition? Many of us have probably been in transition one too many times. Transition is good thing as it also signifies growth, advancement and promotion. You are moving from one place emotionally, physically, spiritually and sometimes geographically.
Transition isn't always easy and it can be uncomfortable because your not sure what is all transpiring, what's your next place and when is it over. Sometimes it seems like it is carrying on but it all depends on what season you were in before you went into transition and where you are going.
For example, if you were in the wilderness for 3 years it may take a little while longer to transition out of that place because you were in it for so long. The Lord has to deal with the wilderness and captivity mentality, alongside bring your mind and emotions out of battle mode and back into normalcy. Because when you are in the wilderness you are going through lots of processes, refiners fire and lots of battles. You have to emotionally and physically recover from all of that and from going through it for so long. The Lord has to gently reprogram your mind, restore cognitive thinking, and even bring your nervous system back into alignment from being in a long continuous arduous battles and resistance.
One thing I have learned that I share with others is to surrender to the Lord and let Him have his way, let Him do what He needs to do and don't fight the process it will be more detriment for you if you do. Once, you allow Him to finish what He needs to do then you enter, A Place Called Transition.
That is how you also know that you have completed that level per say and now you are moving into the next level. Transition is also another indicator that you have went through whatever processes you needed to go through at that level so you can now handle the promotion, upgrade and the next level that you are going into. The Lord has to refresh you emotionally, mentally and physically before you step into your next.
Questions you may have pondered on about transition:
Here are 10 practical steps to consider while in transition:
Philippians 3:13-14 " 13 Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize of God's heavenly calling Christ Jesus.
2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!"
Isaiah 43:18 "Do not call to mind the former things; pay no attention to things of old.
Prayer for you to pray, declare and decree:
Lord, thank you for the taking me through the fire, through the processes, and learning what I needed to learn and understand so that I can teach and impart to others. Thank you for expanding my understanding and giving me wisdom in the transition and in the new place. Thank you for moving me into my new place of promotion and upgrade. Thank you that you have already gone before me and prepared the way. That there is supernatural grace, strength, peace and increase coming over me now into my mind, my heart, my body, my soul and my spirit. Let the heavens be opened over me, my family, my job, my finances as I transition into a new realm of your glory. Let the clutter, chaos and confusion be removed from my atmosphere as your glory invades my atmosphere. Lord show me what is for now and what is for later. Bring the right alignments, connections and provisional resources that are needed for the new season. Let me be in sync with heaven and align into your perfect timing. If, there is anything out of alignment bring everything into alignment according to your will and your word. Lord, help me stay in a place of humility, honor and integrity as I step into my new season. Amen!
Let this word bless, encourage, bring insight, activate and impart into you for the month we are in and how to move forward into the new!
Grace and Love to you all!
