Transitions in a person’s life can be a pretty big deal, especially when they’re unexpected. Some take transitions well, while others find them challenging and repulsive.

Transitions involve change. It’s in our nature to find an established rhythm and stick to it. If it’s thrown off, it rocks our world.

I think we’d all agree that there are good changes. Good changes are things like, “You received the promotion you’ve been wanting.” We could all handle that. Or how about when you get a raise in pay. Or when you find out you’re expecting a baby after several years of infertility. We can handle these.

Then there is the not-so-good-change category. These are things like losing your job, find out your child is very ill, when the doctor tells you that you have an unusual illness, when you find out you lost the baby, when you don’t get the job you had set your heart on. These are tough! These are all unexpected life changes and they’re not always easy to handle.
Big Idea of the Message: Transition and change aren’t always easy, but God is trying to prepare you and call you to fulfill a specific task.
1) WILL YOU TAKE THE BATON?

Application Point: While God desires to do great work in our lives, we must be in the habit of obedience so we will be ready to answer God’s call.

Let me remind you what the word says,
God is with you,
“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.” -Psalm 23:4
And God will deal with the storms
“Jesus responded, “Why are you afraid? You have so little faith!” Then he got up and rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly there was a great calm.” -Matthew 8:23-27
Because With God, all things are possible,
“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
and Because the God that created Heaven and Earth values you.
“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” Matthew 6:26
God has a plan for you
“You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” -Genesis 50:20
Because God is holding your hand. He will help you.
“For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do Not Fear; I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13
God Loves you
“With His Love, He will calm all your fears.” Zephaniah 3:17
Because He is a God of Mercy
“Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever” Psalm 138:8
And He promised to sustain you
“Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you” Psalm 55:22
Because no matter what you’re going through, God promised to work all things for the Good of those who love Him.
