Are you Between a Rock and a Hard Place?

Scripture Meditation: Isaiah 43:1-3 (Msg)
But now, God’s Message,
    the God who made you in the first place, Jacob,
    the One who got you started, Israel:
“Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you.
    I’ve called your name. You’re mine.
When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you.
    When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down.
When you’re between a rock and a hard place,
    it won’t be a dead end—
Because I am God, your personal God,

Word for the Day:

What do you do when you are between a rock and a hard place? Can we be honest for a moment? You don’t have to answer that to me; however, I want you to reflect on that question and give yourself an honest answer.

In life we all find ourselves in a place where we are between a Rock and Hard Place. I will like to call that place “TRANSITION”. It may be difficult and hard right now, but know that you are in TRANSITION. Transition isn’t always comfortable, but it is a necessary process you MUST pass through. If you don’t go through the process of TRANSITION you will not be able to move from where you are to where you want to be.

God is TRANSITIONING you because there is a divine preordained purpose that God has for your life and in order to get there you must go through a TRANSITIONING process. It is a Time of Consecration, Growth, Development, and Impartation. It is uncomfortable and lonely at times, but it is necessary. Don’t fight the process, you are just going through a METAMORPHOSIS.  The TRANSITIONAL Process is preparing you for season of open doors that God has for your life. So, I encourage you while in between a rock and hard place to:

·Keep Your Trust in God
·Stay Focus
·Meditate on the Word of God
·Speak and Declare the Word of God

Be encourage, Praying for You!
