Life is always about change, whether we realize it or not changes are inevitable. We can change for the better or for the worse. Some of us have a difficult time with change and resist it at every angle. Corporations, churches, education, politicians, board meetings, sports, etc. “We’ve never did it that way before” or for others like the old song says,”I shall not be moved!”
Our world is changing so rapidly and science technology has made this possible. Our bodies change from birth to the grave and yes we are mortal. Its so inspiring, observing so many seniors of age who now workout at the gym. These older people have decided to keep their body in shape. Seniors are taking more classes and learning hobbies such as crafts, computers, and swimming, hiking, etc. The late Jack Lalane was on to something over 40 years ago!
Change does not mean we need to compromise our core values and beliefs, but it does mean we have to take risks and risk usually cost us something if it is worth anything.
Change challenges us and stretches us to do things or go to places we thought were not possible or even cause an evolution of complete transformation. Change begins in our mind and thought process to have faith and confidence to trust God through the process.
Generations change, cultures change, nations change, corporations change, and yes religions change, but one thing that is immutable in God’s Word is that Jesus never changes and will always be faithful even when we are faithless and stubborn not to change.
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever”.
Hebrews 13:8 NLT
“God also bound himself with an oath, so that those who received the promise could be perfectly sure that he would never change his mind. So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary”.
God is faithful and loyal to His promises and his oath. He is loyal to His covenant, especially His covenant of grace and forgiveness.
You have to take the first step and allow God to change you from the inside out. Although change can be challenging and painful at times you will not be disappointed and will be happy to keep the change. “Though the outward man is perishing, the inward man is being renewed day by day”.
Remember, change is a daily process and we never arrive, because the Lord has something better in store for you and me. May you recover everything good the Lord has in store for you!
Enjoy your day and weekend my friend. Go out there and make a difference!
