Change, change, change. That’s what I’ve been reading this morning and it’s only 6:07 AM!!
Change is good. And it is encouraging that I (we) can change. Bad habits can be dismantled and put away. New habits can be built to stand. Attitudes can change from sour, bitter and sad to hopeful and kind with contagious smiles when we trust that our GOD is Perfectly CHANGELESS – always loving us, always doing what is best for us!
17 Every good act of giving and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father who made the heavenly lights; with him there is neither variation nor darkness caused by turning.
18 Having made his decision, he gave birth to us through a Word that can be relied upon, in order that we should be a kind of firstfruits of all that he created.
19 Therefore, my dear brothers, let every person be quick to listen but slow to speak, slow to get angry;
20 for a person’s anger does not accomplish God’s righteousness!
21 So rid yourselves of all vulgarity and obvious evil, and receive meekly the Word implanted in you that can save your lives.
22 Don’t deceive yourselves by only hearing what the Word says, but do it!
23 For whoever hears the Word but doesn’t do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror,
24 who looks at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.
25 But if a person looks closely into the perfect Torah, which gives freedom, and continues, becoming not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work it requires, then he will be blessed in what he does.
A Word that can be relied on! Because GOD’s WORD does not change! And because it doesn’t change, WE CAN!! How? by being not just hearers of His Word but doers!
Believing for godly changes on this 22nd day of 2014!
