A transition time is here. I know that some of you have continued to feel a crushing, pulverization, or even a heaviness. Others may still be going through a difficult time. It’s okay if you’re feeling this way. A transition time can also be difficult or feel like a crushing time.

After the transition, trial or crushing comes, you now have to rethink how you are going to make changes, live your life and determine what God is calling you to do. There can be many questions but one thing is certain – you must abide in Him.

In John 15:1-5 it says, “I am the true vine, and My Father is the husbandman. Every branch in Me that beareth not fruit He taketh away; and every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the Word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in the vine, no more can ye, unless ye abide in Me. I am the vine, ye are the branches. He that abideth in Me and I in Him, the same bringeth forth much fruit, for without Me ye can do nothing.”

Abiding in Him is a very important truth that you need to grasp from this passage. Abiding in the vine, the Lord, is necessary if you want to see amazing results happen during this transition time. Just like physical branches get purged, you may be experiencing a time where things have been cut back and purged. It hurts. But no matter what emotional battle you are fighting, whether it was anger, frustration, discouragement, depression or oppression; you cannot disconnect yourself from the Lord.

Instead, allow this time to be a time of repentance and ask the Lord to reinstate His divine nature in you. Staying connected allows you to receive nutrients from the true vine , Jesus.
Tell Him, “Lord, I’ve been through this crushing, but I want to abide in You. I want to get closer to you. I want to hear your voice. Give me the knowledge I need for this time of transition. Amen.”

This is so vitally important because intimacy and a relationship with the Lord is the only thing that will help you walk through this transition time.
