Many people fear change primarily because they find it hard to cope with new situations and events. They are unsettled by their lack of control, which the unexpected brings into their lives. They are much more comfortable with the routines that they know, which provide a sense of safety and security. Indeed, there is little value in change for change sake. But there are times in our lives when we can miss out on that which God has in store for us just because we refuse to change or allow the circumstances that we inhabit to be influenced by change. Thus, we need to learn to be content when being contented with our circumstances is required but we also need to be open to change when God desires that we move on to new opportunities and adventures.
