"Move On"

"And the Lord said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons".  1 Samuel 16:1

It is not always easy for us to "move on".  Sometimes it is "down right hard" for us.  When we experience the death of a loved one, the break up of a relationship, the loss of some possession, the pain of an affliction, past failures and mistakes, we want to stay there in that place.  For some reason, we can't seem to move on. 

The prophet Samuel faced this same thing.  When King Saul disobeyed God and He removed the kingdom from him, Samuel mourned over it for a while.  He got "stuck" in his grief and could not move on.  One day the Lord spoke to him and told him it was time to "move on".  God had rejected Saul and was now ready for Samuel to anoint a new king in Israel.  Samuel had a choice at this point, either stay in that state or move on.

There eventually comes a point where we have to "move on".  We can't stay stuck in the situation.  We can't stay stuck in the past.  We can't stay stuck in our emotions and feelings.  We can't stay stuck in regrets and what could have or might have been.  We can't stay stuck in our own dreams and desires.  We have to move on because, like with Samuel, God is ready to do a new thing in our life.

If God is calling you out of that internal/emotional place you are stuck in it is because He is wanting to move you into a new place in your life.  You have a choice-- either stay there or move on. 

Have a great day.  Are you having a hard time moving on?  God will help you because He is wanting to bring you into a new thing.
