In time, the baby will grow. Hands and feet and eyes will be evident. A heart and a brain and lungs will form. As this is happening, the mother's body is also changing so that she will be able to deliver the baby at the proper time.

If a baby is born prematurely, the child could have serious problems or may not even live. But given enough time to develop naturally, the baby will be strong and healthy, and the mother will be prepared to deliver and care for this new life.

Likewise, many things in your life will need time to develop as your destiny unfolds. As you move up to the next level, during your transition, vital developments are taking place in you that are essential for your growth and future effectiveness.

God wants to bless you, but He needs to make sure you are wise enough and mature enough to handle the blessings He gives. That, my friend, is going to take time.

Therefore, let me encourage you right now to determine to be patient as you move into your new season. Do not try to change things quickly for yourself or rush ahead of God's timing. Embrace the process of transition and begin moving on and moving up—now.
