CHANGE – Daily Devotional by Pastor Steve

For it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.
Philippians 2:13

Change is something we see all around us every day. There is good change and bad change. Take your pick. On top of this, we have people disagreeing on what to change and how to change.

Two obvious examples are the areas of COVID 19 and the racial inequality issue. Both are very serious problems and need to be addressed. The problem is with all the finger-pointing and taking of sides, I fear that the solutions and methods of dealing with these terrible situations will continue to get lost in the battles.
 

What is really wrong and what do we do about it?
For me, it comes down to what does God want me to SEE and DO? If I don’t start with going to God and asking him to show me the truth I will be thinking and acting on my views without the clarity of the Lord.

Now I know that God gave us a brain to use but He created us to function much better if it all starts with Him. The enemy would love to keep us all fighting among ourselves as we talk about what is going on in the world. It is easy to point fingers and assign blame.

What about practical steps and working towards solutions? I see the politicians pointing fingers and assigning blame but I never seem to see any solutions and things just seem to be getting worse and worse.

Our Lord says in the above verse that He gets us to think correctly and act accordingly. So why do we go off in all different directions, pointing fingers as we go?

I do NOT have all the answers but I know that our Lord does.

I must honestly be willing to listen to that still small voice. I must put my pre-conceived notions and emotions out of the way and ask God to help me see the truth. His truth. Then I will be able to take the steps to be a part of the healing of this nation and not a part of the problem.

I  leave you with another verse from Philippians which I find so very helpful as I try to navigate through this crazy world in which we live.

Thank you,

Pastor Steve
