Resistance and Change

Resistance and Change

Change is hard for everyone, for leaders and for those we serve. Change—especially change that we can’t control—can stir up fear and pride. Fear and pride lead to resistance. When resistance rears its head—in you or in those you serve—pause. Ask God to show you the source of the resistance. Is it a heart matter? Is there anything you need to confess? What would it look like to trust God instead of resisting Him? If you are encountering resistance from others, what can you do to ease their fears and help them humbly accept the coming change?

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. – Psalm 51:10

Prayer: Lord, forgive me when I resist what You are doing. Expose any fear or pride that hinders my trust in You. As You renew my spirit, give me the insight needed to come alongside others and help them handle change. In Jesus’ name, amen.
