What season are you in now? Jesus was aware of the seasons as his life and ministry went through many. He experienced seasons of miracles and seasons of teaching. Seasons of favour with men, and seasons where he was abandoned by most.
You will go through changes in life, including moving to a new school year. How can you navigate these new changes?
1. Do not be afraid – It’s really easy to fall into the trap of fear when life changes come. You know things aren’t going to be the same as before and the fear of the unknown or fear of the changes can become very real. Be sure to watch out for fear in your life and if you see it creeping in be sure to tell it no. Don’t allow fear to become something that holds you back.
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)
2. Draw close to God – When you enter into a new season, don’t neglect your relationship with God. You will always have a choice. Will you let those changes draw you closer to God, or will you push Him away?
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. (James 4:8)
3. Get help – Don’t avoid asking for help if you need it. Pastors have great life advice they can give you to help you through life changes. Be willing to ask for their advice or help if you need it. God has placed these people in your life. They can be an encouragement when you need it the most.
