God Ordained Uprooting Will Better Our Lives

10 They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness.  11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.“-Hebrews 12:10-11

When God does anything for us, it is always for our own good. This includes discipline. Have you ever had a moment where you seem stuck? What about when you have a lot coming at you at once? God is not the author of confusion. God will sometimes uproot us or the people, place or things in our lives to get our attention and better our lives. When something or someone is uprooted, it means being moved from what is familiar. So, uprooting looks different for all of us.

God may uproot the people around us because they could be delaying our progress or causing too much negativity.  God may uproot us because we may not be growing in our current location or maybe we have become too lazy or passive. Whatever the reason, we need to realize that God knows what is best for us. He knew about us before we took our first breath. Psalms 139:16 says, “16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

I know when God has done some uprooting in my life, I was not happy initially. Then later I realized how much better my life became because of uprooting.  Sometimes, we do not realize that the reason we are stuck is because we have become so comfortable with comfort, we forget that God desires more for us. God loves us too much to allow us to stay the same. I pray that whenever we experience uprooting that we will trust God. God knows what is best for us. Philippians 4:7 says, “7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
