Change can be hard....
- We can choice our change
- Change can happen to us with out our choice

Chagne will happen---to all of us---FREQUENTLY in life.

- what we do with change / how we handle it strengthens or weakens our character.

Last week we looked at Perspective and how we all see things a bit different---but that we are called to see events through the eyeglasses of Scripture.

When Life Changes----God is Good

The Hebrew people under Moses leadership left Egypt, their home for 400 years and moved into the "desert". and for 40 years they "camped"....

Talk about change.

I.Change is Inevitable

•Isaiah 43:19a (NKJV) Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth…

•Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 (NIV) There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: 2 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot…

Again----change will happen to us all----it is INEVITABLE
- but in the change God desires to do new things in and through us.

What new things is God working in your life?
1.Change is Inevitable
2.God has a Purpose in every Change that takes Place in your Life

•Jeremiah 29:11 (NKJV) For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD,
ɫ "plans to prosper you
ɫ and not to harm you,
ɫ plans to give you hope
ɫ and a future.

•Romans 8:28 (NLT) And we know that God
ɫ causes everything to work together
ɫ for the good of those
ɫ who love God
ɫ and are called according to his purpose for them.

THIS is a hard one---for often the changes---we DON'T understand.
(I often don't understand God's purpose or change in my or people's lives I love....and yet....and YET---God has a plan----for

and here's the catch...a Plan for Those who LOVE Him

God is a Good Good Father
1.Change is Inevitable
2.God has a Purpose in every Change that takes Place in your Life
3.God will Provide for our needs in every change

The Lord's Prayer.....give us TODAY our daily bread
Friends: God will provide what we need / not want we want.

Exodus 16---Manna and Quail
ɫ Psalm 81:10 (NIV) I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.

• Jesus:
ɫ I am Bread of Life John 6: 35,51
ɫ Water of Life John 7: 37-38
ɫ John 6:35 And Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.
ɫ But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33

• Philippians 4:19 (NIV) And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
Romans 5:3-5 (NIV)
3 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;
4 perseverance, character; and character, hope.
5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
