God Makes Reassignments - May 9, 2024

If only we could order life the way we order gourmet coffee. “Give me a tall, extra-hot cup of adventure, cut the dangers, with two shots of good health.” Truth is, life often hands us a concoction entirely different from the one we requested. None of us pass through this life surprise free. So, embrace it. Accept it.

Change is not only a part of life; change is a necessary part of God’s strategy. To use us to change the world, he alters our assignments. God transitioned Joseph from a baby brother to an Egyptian prince. Over time, we discover that the thing we thought we wanted is far less satisfying than what God has prepared for us.
