A Perfect Fit

A Perfect Fit

When God is preparing us to step into something new, He often must shift some things. Some situations and relationships are no longer comfortable. In this transition we might become restless and question our place in the present and in the future. However, the shift is necessary to accommodate God’s plans for our lives.

We are His workmanship and can trust what He sees fit. God has prepared beforehand, which in Greek means to fit up in advance, specifics to line up with His best for our lives. There is excitement in realizing the Lord stretches us to fit the new places we are about to occupy.

What God has for us is going to fit us as we let go of what no longer fits. We are familiar with what it takes to break into new shoes. At first, they do not feel comfortable. We get sore spots and need to adjust them. When that period is over, they fit like a glove, like they were tailor made for us. In our transitions, let us be quick to let go of what can no longer be. Let us trust the process and see it as our glorious transformation, from glory to glory!  

Ephesians 2:10 “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” 

 

Look!

Look!

As we look to our Lord, He helps us look in three directions taking us to a place of trust and hope in Him. We look back. We remember what God has already helped us through, and how He moved in our lives in greater ways than anticipated. We see how we have grown in the Lord and the freedom we now have in areas where we were bound.

We look within. We allow the Spirit of Christ to bring light to every area in need of healing. We humbly face ourselves, confront in order to conquer, and walk in freedom. What doesn’t match our divine identity is examined. We increase in the knowledge of who we are in Christ, and who Christ is in us: the hope of glory. We look forward. He brings a new perspective day-by-day. We look ahead with full confidence knowing our paths are shining brighter and brighter. What God has prepared for us is so much greater than what we could ask or think!

When the future appears cloudy, let’s look again. We have victory in our past. We are being renewed inwardly day-by-day and we rejoice in the glory that will be manifested in our future. We have hope, surety in our steps, and most of all confidence of complete deliverance out of any trial we might face from glory to glory!

Ephesians 2:10 “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
