Time to Move On

Divider
But now he is dead. Why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he will not return to me.”

2 Samuel 12:23


David did everything he knew to do. Nathan the prophet already told David that his baby son would die as a consequence of his sinful behavior. However, David cried out to God in prayers and fasting, hoping to change His mind. However, it didn’t happen that way, and after David found out his son was dead, he cleaned himself up, worshiped God, ate food, and comforted his wife.

His servants were bewildered by his actions, as they were afraid to tell him about the death in the first place. Yet David demonstrated his faith in God and moved on with his life. It wasn’t a cold, callous decision; rather, it was an acceptance and acknowledgement of God being in control of his life and that he would one day see his son again.

Many times it’s difficult for us to move on. We hold onto the memories and want everything back the way it was. However, it’s necessary for us to let go of the past and take the first steps towards our future in Christ.

All of us at some point in time will have to move on, whether it’s a death, a relationship breakup, a job loss, or other disappointment that life brings our way. God does His greatest work in us when we let go of what we want and instead desire what He wants for our lives. It’s painful to let go because many times we can’t wrap our minds around the different path of life we need to take. However, it’s our trust in the living and faithful God that gives us the strength to let go and move on.

Prayer

Dear Lord, it is so very hard for me to move on from what I wanted. However, I will trust You to lead me into the right paths of life so that Your glory will be revealed in me. Amen.

In His Service,
