You Want Change…?Daily Thoughts
1 Corinthians 3:7 “So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow“
This morning I experienced a change in my life I had been waiting for, for a long time. I was reminded of God’s faithfulness over the situation and that he alone is the master of change.
I always used to ask myself (and others) “What does it mean to rest on God’s grace and strength?“. I was always looking for some spectacular spiritual phenomenon where God’s grace would come upon me and I’d be able to accomplish what I desired.
But over the last few months, I have learnt that really all it is, is to trust God to bring the change. As Paul wrote to the Corinthians; neither our actions of planting or watering are anything but only God who makes things grow. We can try to change our situations by trying new things or starting new habits, but only God’s grace will change it. Living in God’s grace means giving up trying to change it yourself and trusting him to change it for you.
God will change it how he likes, when he likes, but his faithfulness is proven when he answers our prayers to bring change.I have been faithful in prayer, and God has been faithful to provide the change. You want change?
