Transition is preparation for position. In that training period, we are not sure we are learning what is needed because we do not yet know the specifics of these teachings. The upcoming position God has for us has not yet been revealed; therefore, we have no knowledge of what it will entail. It’s a place where only faith works.
At times God gives us experiences and teaches us the lessons from them later. When we are in a shift, He gives us lessons to prepare us for future encounters. It’s not until after the tests that we realize we were in them. The testing pertains to truths we have already acquired. One of these is the assurance that the Lord is preparing us. We recognize there is groundwork happening by the moving in our heart. What used to feel comfortable doesn’t any more. Restlessness occurs. What was fulfilling is not fulfilling any longer. We long for what God has for us next, and know it will be amazing.
In that transition, faith in the unknown is activated in new measure. The Spirit of God gives us a faith lift. The faith He imparts to us lifts us above what is familiar so we can be ready – to be where we have never been. We soar like eagles. The best is yet to come indeed, from glory to glory!
Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
