Make That Change!
Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life (Galatians 6:5 MSG).
Alot of Christians try to make God responsible for what is actually their responsibility. Sometimes you hear some people make statements like, “If God didn’t want that thing to happen, why did He let it happen?” For those who talk like that, it’s obvious they are not aware that the authority to change things in the earth doesn’t rest with God, for He’s delegated that authority to us—His children. We have the responsibility to change things when the circumstances of our lives don’t line up with the provisions of the gospel of Christ.
In Matthew 17:20, Jesus lets us know that YOU, not God, can do ANYTHING: “...verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you” If He had said nothing shall be impossible unto God, that would have been easy enough to agree with; everybody ought to know that. But He said nothing shall be impossible unto YOU.
Then in Mark 9:23, He said, “...all things are possible to him that believeth.” So the big question is: Do you believe? If you do, then what do you believe? If you believe God’s Word and put it to work in your life, then anything is possible unto you. You shouldn’t wait for God to alter your circumstances; you’re to make that change! By your faith, you can be what you want to be, change what you want to change, and achieve what you want to achieve!
Learn to take up your responsibility, for you’ve been imbued with the ability to effect changes. You don’t have to wait for evil to strike in your home before you put your faith to work and cause changes that you desire. Keep the Word in your mouth always, releasing faith-filled confessions; and those confessions will create the realities in your life.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. My life is one of endless possibilities, nothing is difficult for me, and no negative or challenging circumstances and situations are impossible for me to change. I’m a believer in Christ Jesus, therefore, a possessor of all things!
Mark 11:23; Philippians 4:13
