The Change You Need Might Be You

All of us seem to praying about something. Given the chance, each of us would take a minute to describe a situation that, with just a little help from God, would be so much better, or at least easier.

We pray for better relationships, for better jobs, for more money. We want something to change. But here is the catch: we never seem to think that we might be the change God wants to bring to the situation. We usually assume that it is something else or someone else that should change.

But what if…

• What if God wanted to give you a new marriage by giving your wife a new husband?
• What if God wanted to give you a new job by giving your boss a new employee?
• What if God wanted to give riches—more than you could carry—just not the kind you can buy with money?

Mathematicians tell us that if you change one part of the equation, you have changed its outcome. So, if God changes you or me, hasn’t He changed our circumstances?

We all are praying for change, but few of think that we might be the change God desires.

What about you? What would change for you if YOU were the change God wanted to bring to your circumstances?

  1. That is quite a profound thought. Before I would know what would change for me I would need to be able to recognize the change God wanted to bring to your circumstances.
    Could it be more patience with things in my life that cause me to have an impatient attitude?

    Perhaps a more loving and understanding feeling toward my spouse.

    Perhaps he would say it was time to retire from my job, which has brought me such self satisfaction.

    So much to think about and wonder. Good question. I will have to pray that Heavenly Father can show me what change he wants of me.

  2. I should have said “Before I would know what would change for me I would need to be able to recognize the change God wanted to bring to MY circumstances.”
    Thanks for such a great concept.
