The Bible is all about the grace of change. It’s a story of new beginnings and fresh starts. The Bible holds before us that hope that we can change, and in so doing, act and speak in new and better ways.
And although the Bible clearly presents that change generally is a process and not an event, it does call us to do all that we can do to participate in God’s work of change.
So here’s the question you need to ask yourself today: “What can I do to participate in God’s agenda of change for my life?”
Here are a few steps to move you in the direction of personal change.
1- Don’t Give Way To Regrets- It’s so easy to meditate on the long list of your past mistakes. But your Lord knows that growth is a process. He won’t turn His back on you because you’ve failed.
Remember this: God not only forgives your mistakes; He empowers you to not make them again.
2- Change The Rules- Lasting change is the result of a commitment to a new and better way. You need to ask yourself:
“What old patterns is God calling me to replace?”
“What will the new way look like?”
“Where are places where you will be tempted to go back to the old way?”
“Where will change be hard and demand perseverance?”
“Who are the people that you can invite to hold you accountable?”
There are but a few steps of change, and in every step, God will make Himself and His grace known to you!
