Change-make or become different
Until you change your thinking, you will always recycle your experiences.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
When change (large or small) comes in life, we often find it unsettling!
This has always been the case with humanity.
Change can be an energizing force for power and progress; or if not handled well can also be a force for stagnation and regression. The Bible is a book about changes, those handled well resulted in great gains, and those handled poorly resulted in great losses. The right way to handle change is found in the pages of Scripture.
1. The first thing to recognize when facing changes is that God Himself never changes. This is the rock of our peace, a security, and confidence when facing the past, present, and future. This is the anchor for dealing with all changes because He is the one thing that can be counted on “NOT” to change.
2. The second thing to recognize about change is that God always has someone at the ready to move His plans forward. His plans are never conditioned on just a single person though He uses single individuals as part of the process.
3. Thirdly, God’s mission must continue on! You and I are invited to participate in the fulfillment of His calling; our commitment is first to the mission.
It is always difficult to face changes. God will always be there ready to continue the progress of what He has raised up.
Change in the hands of the “Changeless God.” is safe and positive, and will yield good fruit to those that respond correctly and embrace it.
The one thing that never changes is God. God doesn’t change, we can be at peace when everything around us does. God works in our changes to move us forward, never backward. In every change, we can be sure God is planning for our good, moving us closer to Him. In this way we can not only embrace change but also welcome it.
II Chronicles 7:14
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
YOU CAN NEVER CHANGE DOING THE SAME THING!
