Change is hard on all of us. But for those who wish to make some changes there is a sure way to accomplish it. Daily bible study and application (the latter is the difficult part), is the only genuine and effective method which we can use to really make changes in our lives. We will also gain as a benefit from that study, a much deeper faith.
Change will come but it will not come without conflict. Remember, habit is a tool often used by the Devil. He actively opposes our attempts to make the changes which will please the god we serve. The weapon most effective in countering his attacks according to the apostle Paul is “the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Knowledge of the Bible is invaluable when you encounter the power of darkness.
The Bible tells us that our God has “put eternity in our hearts.” That simply tells us that God has given us direction for our lives. It is up to us to make the necessary course adjustments. This involves change. Once again, That is hard on us, but with our Lord’s help, we, like Paul…”can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” Make the changes while you have the time.
