Seasons change, plans change, friendships change, jobs change, but changing habits creates big changes in us. Psalm 106:26 says; They will perish, but You will endure; Yes, they will all grow old like a garment; Like a cloak You will change them, and they will be changed.
Why is it that some personalities thrive on change while others love stability? And who thought it was a good idea to combine the two together in holy matrimony? So many couples fight to keep their individuality within their marriage, but lately I’ve discovered something. When you yield to one another, you become one in a greater sense then you ever knew.
So it is with our relationship with God. Yielding to His voice and His will, brings us so much closer and deeper then we ever thought possible. But when we insist on our way because we want relationship on our terms, we create a wedge which keeps us from our desired end.
Are you seeking to know God or know about God? Knowledge of God is a good thing, but relationship with God is better. If all you know is ‘about’ God, chances are you don’t really know God. You can explain Him to anyone, know every chapter and verse, believe in Him, but if it’s not personal, that needs to change. You can be raised in a Christian home and know God through your parents, but until it becomes a personal experience of love and trust, it’s just knowledge.
When you allow the Holy Spirit to show you the attributes of God and you actually experience His deep abiding love, He changes you. Getting up each morning, connecting with Him, allowing His voice to be the only one you hear, leading, directing and watching over your path, that’s the change that takes you somewhere you’ve never been.
Father, I love Your presence! You bring me everything I need for this day and I’m so thankful. You knew me before I was a human being. My spirit came from You and here we are connected again. When I’m weak, You’re strong. When I lack, You provide. You’re my healer, protector, strength and director. I am nothing in and of myself, but You change me from glory to glory. I’m complete in You.
