Many times, when God is exalting us, he performs a shift in our lives. When a shifting occurs, there is a change in position, an unexpected movement, and often times, the removal and addition of people in our lives. In the process of a shift, we are often confused and have many unanswered questions. People, we assumed would be in our lives forever, unexpectedly leave and the ones we least expect become our primary supporters. During a shift we sometimes lose things that are important to us and become increasingly distraught as it seems as though things are getting worse opposed to better.
It is important to remember, that when God is shifting our atmosphere, this shift is always a part of a greater plan. Although things may happen that are beyond our understanding, nothing occurring is in vain. When God desires to move us to a higher place, often we are placed in uncomfortable positions; positions that feel strange and new. While in these positions, we have no choice but to make moves that we most likely would not have made before. We are often forced to press forward and take risks that we would have normally been afraid to take. While in this place, God is pushing us into his greater purpose for our lives. We sometimes find ourselves expanding our limits, in an effort to fulfill, an urgent desire that we may not completely understand. Our thoughts and views begin to change, and it is common to receive revelation and insight on things we never have before. The visions we have for ourselves are often far less than what God desires for us, therefore, he allows things to come about that will cause us step out into unknown territory. This territory is usually an essential part of reaching our destiny and fulfilling God’s divine purpose for our lives.
At this moment, if strange things seem to be happening, and you are questioning what you could be doing wrong know that it could simply be due to God shifting the atmosphere in your life. All of the changes, relationship transitions, and altering life views, could all be a part of the shift. If you are being directed to do things that are new, know that you could be in a shift. The uneasy feelings and the restlessness will soon cease as things begin to settle into their proper new positions. During this time embrace the process that is taking place. Even though it feels awkward and you may not completely understand the purpose of each stage, remember that God is causing and allowing change. This change is not to hinder, hurt or break you but it is to define, encourage, make and mold you. God is simply shifting your atmosphere!
