Do you struggle with the same negative issues in your life? Does it seem like change for good is elusive? Even after great blessing, there can be a time where it seems like things stay the same. But God promises, we will be perfected.
Christianity has a different perspective on life change. We have been forever changed and are constantly being changed. As we pursue relationship with Jesus, we are shown a new way to live. It happens over time and with the prodding of the Holy Spirit. Completion of the changing power of God is promised to us. When are we perfected? When we meet the Lord face to face.
It is God who works in us to will and to work toward change, not us. We can’t do anything on our own. It is the opposite of the way we are taught to live in the world. Self reliance is our enemy. Dependence on God is our joy, the promise of change for good.
God is perfecting you. You are growing and changing as you live out your days. When it seems like it is all the same, remember God is perfecting you, you need only to be open for it to happen. Remember the things that have changed in your life. Ask God to continue His work in you. Thank Him that He is doing it. Regardless if you feel or see it. Change is coming, keep moving forward.
