Getting Good with Change

The Bible tells us — warns us — that change is coming our way… no need to be surprised!

Change Can Be Anticipated
Who Has Believed

Scripture Reading: Luke 1:35-38

Key Verse: Luke 1:45

“Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!”

We’ve all heard the phrase: “I’ve been blindsided.” This indicates that something has come upon us that was totally unexpected. When we are blindsided, we usually need time to recover, rethink, and make a new plan. Change is tough enough without this aspect of the unexpected. Is it possible to anticipate all change? We certainly cannot know all the specific ways life is going to come at us, but, in general, when we walk with God, we can start to prepare for future changes, changes that are inevitable.

In Luke chapter one, Mary makes a statement. It is in the suggested additional reading section, Luke 1:38: “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered, “may it be to me as you have said.” Then the angel left her. The second faith statement is in our Key Verse for today, made by Elizabeth: “Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished.”

The Bible tells us — warns us — change is coming our way. All the Old Testament predictions for change and future events came true. We can trust the Bible! Jesus said we would encounter trouble in this world; isn’t that the truth! Today, you may experience change, some minor and, possibly, some major changes. Are you ready? Are you anticipating change? In the next few days, we’ll talk of ways to prepare for change, but for today, our greatest step is to anticipate and not be blindsided when change invades our life!

Father, today may not look or feel like yesterday. Please help me expect both change and your accompanying grace when it comes. I ask this In Jesus’ Name, amen.
