When life is unstable, honestly, you feel stressed. Despite knowing God and doing your best to stay positive, uncertain times make positivity extraordinarily difficult.

But leave it to Bishop T.D. Jakes, known for motivating millions worldwide with his charismatic preaching, to put an encouraging spin on change and transition and offer his best advice to those struggling with life’s destabilizing moments.

“You’re not supposed to know. Life is a mystery,” said the Dallas, Texas leader during the final episode of daytime talk show, “Steve,” hosted by successful author, comedian and game show host, Steve Harvey. “If you take away the mystery and everything was certain, you wouldn’t need faith. Faith functions best when you don’t know.”

Whether you are going through changes in your workplace, finances, health, relationships, ministry, business, or emotions, Jakes believes God has a specific purpose for disrupting our sense of normalcy. “God often puts us in positions where we don’t know, to destabilize us from relying too much on what we know,” explained the 62-year-old.
