To shift means to exchange one things for another, to move or transfer from one place or position to another, to alter, or to change gears. For anyone that has ever driven a stick shift, you understand that there is an art to shifting gears. If you don’t do it right you will kill it! When a shift happens, things are never the same again. Shifts change things forever. God makes major shifts in our lives. Instead of thanking Him for those shifts, sometimes, we can be just like the children of Israel. God led them out of Egypt where they were slaves but, when things got hard, they wanted to go back to Egypt. Like the children of Israel, when God makes a shift in your life he will even give you favor with your enemies. The same people who enslaved them showered them with precious gifts. The only thing we have to do is obey God. If you are never willing to obey, you’ll never move from where you are.
