Transition and sifting

1.14.18

Here we are, a brand new year. What will you do with this new year? How will this new year be different for you from the last year? Good questions, points to ponder.  
I believe it is a season of transition. Transition is moving forward, challenges and changes to move through. Letting go of the old and embracing the new. Even in our relationships we much continue to move forward in that relationship. We must trust and embrace new things, and be confident and comfortable with it.
As a Believer in Christ Jesus we cannot remain the same as the day of our Salvation. We cannot remain as babies in Christ, refusing to grow up because it hurts or it is fearful of the unknown. Humans need to grow and to learn to give and produce. In our physical life this is so. We grow and change clothes from babyhood to adulthood. This is transition. My children use to have real growing pains in their shins as they grew up in height. Great pain was involved until the growing spurt was accomplished. It is the same in our spiritual life. We must grow in the knowledge and grace and mercy of Christ. We must grow in our understanding of who He is and how to truly serve Him and how to serve our fellow man. We must grow and transition into His power and His might, and what that means. We must move out of our comfort zone. Remember how the Lord told Peter to cast out his fishing net into the deep? Peter said he had already fished and got nothing, he had rolled up his net. He obeyed. He stepped out into the "deep", out into the unknown not realizing this was "the impossible with man but possible with God" area. He had such a harvest of fish that he had to share with other fishermen before his boat capsized! 
Transition is scary, the unknown. It involves being "sifted". Sifting is to shake and test and get rid of all impurities or motives. There is personal sifting and there is corporate sifting. Ministries and business, homes and relationships all need sifting from time to time. You cannot have transition without sifting.
I think that as humans, as Christians, we have a tendency to think our transition
and sifting process is an attack of the devil and begin to rebuke him. Because of that thought we get in the way of what God is trying to do in our life and it becomes a mess and we become discouraged. 
So, the next time God begins a transition and sifting in our life let us recognize His hand and get into partnership with Holy Spirit. Let's learn to get through it and grow up!
Stop fighting against it and bemoaning our state of being. God is doing a great work in us and for us. Let us rejoice in that; let us embrace this new year full of new processes and new things and of growth!
