Are you going through a challenging time or serious life transition? God wants you to have courage. Here are 7 bible verses to help you through it.
1. He is with you
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze” (Isaiah 43:2).
Wherever you go, wherever God has you next, He is with you. Even through the trials and fire of life, God is there. God will hold you steadily.
2. No matter the circumstance, you can trust Him
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows” (James 1:17).
Know that your heavenly Father is good; no matter what the circumstance you can trust Him. He is a steady foundation you can lay your head on during these times of transition. Who knows it can even turn out to be a blessing in the end.
3. He is in control. He will give you the wisdom you need.
“He changes times and seasons; He removes kings and sets up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding” (Daniel 2:21).
Life changes, some seasons are only temporary. God comes back around and shows you the purpose for the last season. He will give you the wisdom and clarity you need.
4. Be assured, He’s doing a new thing!
“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland” (Isaiah 43:19).
God is up to something new! Embrace it! This next season is a NEW one, and that can be exciting in its own way.
5. No matter life’s changes, Christ remains the same: A constant friend you can depend upon.
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).
Amid all the changes, it’s good to know that Jesus Christ is the same forever. To have a constant friend and companion in the person of Jesus is beautiful. Many things may change in this transition, but He will remain unshakeable.
6. Be assured, He’s working behind the scenes on your behalf.
“Jesus replied, ‘You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand’” (John 13:7).
God is working behind the scenes on your behalf. Even when you cannot feel or see it, He is working. Just like Jesus was in control at the cross, no one really could understand the immeasurable glory that was to come from His plan.
7. His plans are only to prosper you. Partner with Him today and see victory!
“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’” (Jeremiah 29:11).
There is a hope and a future for you, my friend! God has not abandoned you in this transition. He will see you through it, and you will come out victorious on the other side, believe it.
