17 Jul Why is it So Hard to Change?
When God is changing us, we need to KEEP GOING!
“I see another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members….Who will deliver me from this…..Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!”
I recently watched a squirrel run across route 80. He got about half way across, panicked, and starting running back and forth in front of my car. It was all I could do to avoid hitting him. Had he simply kept on going by following his natural instincts, he would have been okay. However, it was his indecision that got him into trouble.
When God is bringing change into our lives, we can easily become like that squirrel. We get started, things are going fine, and then we start thinking. Doubt, fear, procrastination, and indecision start creeping into our minds. If we don’t keep going, we get stuck in the middle of change and completely lose our way. It is only by completely surrendering to Christ when those doubts start entering our mind that we are able to have the complete victory that God wants for us.
This week I invite you to surrender one area of your life to Christ. As you do, let go of any mistakes or failures from your past. God is doing something incredible in your life. As you surrender, you will be amazed at how God will do for you what you are unable to do for yourself!
