Birthing Transition

20 10 2012

If you have ever expected a child, transition is everywhere. Today we are looking at the elements of a birthing transition through the life of Abram, who became the father of the nation of Israel.

“The LORD said to Abram: Leave your country, your family, and your relatives and go to the land that I will show you.

I will bless you and make your descendants into a great nation. You will become famous and be a blessing to others.

I will bless anyone who blesses you, but I will put a curse on anyone who puts a curse on you. Everyone on earth will be blessed because of you.”

Gen 12:1-3

Abram at the age of 135 was asked by the Lord to leave his country, his family, his relatives and go to the land the Lord was going to show him. Note Abram was not asked to break relationship with his wife, but rather the Lord expected him to take his barren wife with him and the break with his family was gentle for the Lord allowed his nephew Lot to accompany them.

Obedience to the Lord is the first step in a birthing transition. With this type of transition expect a separation for it allows room for the new life to grow.  The promises of the Lord have a purpose as well, for they serve to encourage you as you walk through this time of  transition. Patience is also critical for just as with the gestation of a human baby, a birthing transitions takes time and in the case of the nation of Israel, it took several generations.

Next time we will look at a rare but important transition, a covenant transition.
