I’m a few days behind with my DIGs (no condemnation though) and am writing this one on the first day of a new year.
Social media is full of wishes for this year; with lists of changes people aim to make as the year progresses.
Many are hoping God will do this and God will do that, thinking that God is the agent of change in their lives.
This is not true.
God does not change and does not change the way He relates to us.
If we had a bad 2015 it was not because God willed it; God in fact willed that all should be saved and that all would live in health and abundance (2 Peter 3 v 9 and 3 John 2).
Jesus is the express image of God and if we read in the Word about Jesus we can transfer that knowledge onto God.
The Word says Jesus does not change so God does not change (Hebrews 13 v 8).
If there is something wrong in your life it is not because God wills it, it is because you live in a fallen world or that you are thinking inappropriately and speaking out lies.
If you want a better year it is not God that needs to change.
You need to change.
Yes, you can ask the Lord to help you, but it is you that needs to renew your mind, change the way you think and change what you speak out over your life.
Don’t ask God to change your life, take control and change your own life.
Speak this out today…..”Thank You Lord that as a man thinketh so is he, and thank you that death and life are in the power of my tongue”.
Hebrews 13 v 8…..Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever
