“…they rejected him and in their hearts turned back to Egypt.” Acts 7:39
The Israelites wanted to go back to Egypt—back to the only way they knew—slavery.
It takes time to adjust to the chilly waters of change. It’s not always comfortable to welcome the unseen and embrace the new—to believe and trust when life is thrown off-balance. It’s tempting to go back to lukewarm waters where one knows how to maneuver, even if it’s not the best choice for the long run.
The waters of change take time to adjust to. One has to learn where to step and when to trust the next foothold and move forward. It’s not necessarily the easy way; it’s the new way. And, however scary, it’s better to move forward with God than to turn back to Egypt.
Lord, go with me and lead the way. Let me not turn back to comfort zones and old ways. Give me the faith to believe in You, the trust to know you won’t leave me and the faith to move forward. Amen.
