WE’RE GOING TO CHANGE; REALLY?

14 Mar

When some of us get into a dire situation the first thing we do is swear to stop doing whatever it is we are doing.  We claim to start the process of turning over a new leaf.  (Reform)  Mostly, we swear to God telling him, We’re going to Change if he…And we think we’re off to a good start.

The first thing some do (like I did) is to start spewing out empty promises to save my whatever is left of it.  Besides claiming the same ole same ole; I’m going to rectify, do, or not do something ever again… “I swear it.”   Yeah right!

It never works, and most of us know that when we tell that lie.  Some of us know Matthew 5:36; Neither shalt thou swear by your head because thou canst not make one hair white or black.   We are already in trouble; aware of it or not.

But, we can right the wrongs and change because of the Grace and Mercy that comes from Jesus Christ.  Jesus didn’t say we couldn’t change, He said, You can do nothing without me.  (John 15:5 KJV)  I believed Him and started seeking Him by joining a Bible Teaching Church.

So, with all this talk about changing when the chips are down or when we are flying high, coupled with that thing we did that was so embarrassing we will never live it down.  In today’s society, it’s very difficult to believe that with some of the unspeakable acts that bring grown men to tears, those who could commit such acts, could, or would want to change.

My situation was nowhere near what I just described, but, as a Living Witness who has experienced a transformation.  I know You can change for two reasons. Either, you learn enough to want to or you’ve been hurt enough to have to. 

Call on the name of Lord!

Perhaps, there will come a time when we all will have to make that call, if so, we will have to stand up for ourselves and be accountable.  And while you’re at it, be cautious of making idle promises.  The ones we make when caught in the moment.  After all, God did say, ” before I formed you in the womb I knew thee.”  (Jeremiah 1:5  KJV)   We cannot hide from God.

Let us come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.  Hebrews 4:16

Tell Him what you want.  May I suggest you: Pray for something more important that you, and then dedicate your life to it.  Daniel Dennett

Never be afraid to try to change, then do something worthy, remember… “Amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.”  So, with a little effort and some prayer, we can do all things through Christ; successfully.  (Philippians 4:13 KJV)

Lord, give us the strength to make positive changes in our lives, and stay under your authority.  In Jesus name we pray.  Amen

    After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from
    now on each time a comment is added I recieve four
    emails with the same comment. Perhaps there is a way you are able to remove me from that service?
    Thanks!

    I think the admin of this website is genuinely working hard for his web site, because here every
    information is quality based data.
