With the new year just around the corner, I thought "change" to be an appropriate topic for this week. New Year's resolutions are about to be made. Many people will be vowing to change things they don't like about themselves. As Christians, we are plugged into the God of the universe. The ultimate author of change in our lives and the one place to turn to when we know change is needed. The problem is that we don't always recognize or we don't always want to admit when change is needed. It takes us out of our comfort zone or it may be all about getting rid of a sin that we aren't ready to admit to.
So this week we are praying the following:
1. That we will rely on God to help us identify the change that's needed in our lives.
2. Once the change is identified, that we embrace the need for the change and get out of the way of God's plan.
3. That as we go through the change, we rely on God to get us through and keep us changed. It's not about self will-power.
Have a great week and a great fast.
