"Many mansions"

Christ Jesus' loving assurance "In my Father's house are many mansions .... I go to prepare a place for you" John 14:2; can have special meaning for anyone who must move to a new location. More than a comforting statement, these words of the Master's are a powerful truth, a spiritual law, which when understood, held to, and trusted can transform what might otherwise be a difficult experience into a happy adventure, nullifying any sense of interruption or loss.

Take it from our family of "corporate gypsies." We have moved eleven times now, including one move overseas. Through each experience we have learned to trust the Father's will of abundant good for us and His tender care in imparting it to us. And God has never failed to place us in a mansion. No hundred-room castles and hundred-acre estates, true; but when we have dwelt in the Father's house He has always provided us with a well-located dwelling place that has abundantly met the needs of our whole family, individually and collectively.
