God of Change

Divider

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.

2 Corinthians 5:17


People are always in a state of change—they are changing their minds, jobs, homes, etc. Yet there’s a change that happens on the inside of believers that sets us apart from every other religion in the world. Our change is from the inside out, from our hearts and minds to our actions. The change that comes from God is sealed by His Holy Spirit, and we are never the same again.

Those who profess to be Christians and yet don’t see any change in their lives may be deceived into believing that regular church activities and their good works are enough. The change from God takes us from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God (Acts 26:18). Change is evident through actions as the light of Christ shines out of those who’ve surrendered their hearts to Him.

The God of change doesn’t stop with just our spirits; He changes our attitudes and habits. This doesn’t mean we don’t have faults or need His tweaking over time. Yet because of our inner change, we are becoming more like Jesus every day. Our goals and desires change to doing things with a more eternal impact. Our thinking changes because we become more sensitive towards the needs of others around us.

The God of change even changes those around us. If He can change us, the Lord can change anyone, especially those we are praying for every day. While their lives seem to be untouched by our daily prayers, God is working things out that we can’t see with our physical eyes. Yet in faith we press forward because we know how we’ve been changed by God. With man their change is impossible, but nothing is impossible with God.

Prayer

Dear Lord, change my heart, mind, and soul to be more like Jesus. Help me to keep praying for change in those around me to know You. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
