Experiences in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other places have taught us to be ready for anything, at any time. Our military has adapted well and is more resilient than ever. Just as asymmetric warfare is the “new normal” for our military, a constantly changing environment is normal for the Christian.
“After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, it came to pass that the Lord spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ assistant, saying: ‘Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them—the children of Israel’” (Joshua 1:1-2, NKJV).
As both Christians and warriors, we constantly face change from one direction or another. Are you willing to trust God to be your constant during change? Expect changes; be open to present realities. Trust that God is in control. Through our adversities and trials, God leads. He may even call you, like Joshua, to be an agent of change.
