Endings are beginnings. When we resist, delay, or refuse endings we never step into beginnings. When our physical body ends, our glorified body begins; When our time in the wilderness ends, our promised land begins. When we hang onto endings, we miss out on beginnings.
The Lord is Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. He is the God who is in everything. We are never left to ourselves but we must not fight the ending or we won’t enter the beginning. People get stuck in the ending because it’s familiar but then they miss out on the new beginning. Our call is to let the Lord take us through the endings and bring us into the beginnings.
Walking by the Spirit and not by the flesh is about not holding onto anything so tightly that it hinders our movement. The spirit is like water it is continually moving. If we are going to transition between endings and beginnings we must be willing to allow the spirit of God and the river of life to take us into our new beginnings.
Grief must end so the joy can begin. Lack must end so that prosperity can begin. When singleness ends marriage begins. When winter ends spring begins. When the night ends the day begins. The idea of endings and beginnings are everywhere don’t resist the ending enter in to the new beginning.
Revelation 22:13 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
