Moving Beyond a Loss
Everyone experiences loss at some point in life. It could be the loss of a loved one, the loss of a job, the loss of a dream, or simply a lost opportunity. If we aren’t careful, those losses in life can be like potholes in the road of our destiny that get us stuck and keep us from moving forward in the things God has for us.
Scripture tells us there is a season to mourn. You don’t want to miss that season, but you don’t want to get stuck there either. One thing we have to remember is that no matter what happens, God still has a good plan. The enemy may try to distract you or stop you, but if you are willing to stay open to what God has, He will move you past the disappointment into His divine appointment.
Whenever a door in your life closes, God always gives you the grace to move forward. He is a progressive God, and He always wants you to rise higher and go further than you ever have before. He wants to give you beauty for ashes. What are those ashes? Those are the places where life has burned you. What is the beauty? The healing and restoration beyond what you could ever imagine!
Today, if you are ready to move beyond a loss, begin by searching your heart for any unforgiveness. Unforgiveness tethers us to the enemy’s plan. Forgiveness sets us free because we are no longer trying to be the judge of the situation; we are stepping back and letting God be the judge of the situation. Forgiveness doesn’t justify what happened. It doesn’t mean that it didn’t matter. It only means that you are trusting God. Set your eyes on Jesus and let go of anything that would try to hold you captive. Don’t get stuck thinking that you don’t have any good options. There’s always an option you can’t see—the God option!
Release yesterday; release what didn’t work out. Trust God and move beyond loss into the blessing and victory God has in store for your future.
“The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.” (Isaiah 61:1-3, NIV)
