Change Starts With You
God make me over? This question I believe can be a clarion call for most Believers in Christ. It is this type question we ask God when we truly see who and what we really are.
The Prophet Isaiah said it like this in chapter 6 of Isaiah:
So I said: “Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, The Lord of hosts.”
Isaiah 6:5 NKJV
Isaiah saw who he really was on the inside. He looked at God and then with a pure and holy eye looked at himself and came to the conclusion that he was nowhere near that man he thought he was.
I believe God’s work must first start within if we are to be effective in other areas of our lives. I think that this is an universal principle. Whether you are in church, at home or at work change must start within in order to impact your surroundings. We must practice what the scripture says, “Pick up our cross and follow Jesus.”
God wants his work to truly start with us first and then change a generation. However, oftentimes, we look to change others before we clean up the mess in our own lives.
The greatest opportunity for change and progress starts with the man and in the mirror. The brightest light in the room will truly illuminate when the shade is removed and the true essence of light can shine.
We must become the change that we want others to be. The greatest thing about changing ourselves is that, if anyone else doesn’t follow its okay. You are your greatest priority apart from God.
We can’t become good friends, spouses, employees or servants if we are not willing to put in the time becoming and being those things we want to see in others.
If we want to preach godliness we must practice godliness in secret and in the open we won’t have to pretend. We would just be godly because we have put in the time to change.
So be the change you would like the world to see snd I guarentee some one will be awakened by your light.
