Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
Romans 12:2 “Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. YOU’LL BE CHANGED FROM THE INSIDE OUT. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.” (MSG)
Jim Rohn says, “If you don’t like the way things are in your life, change it, you’re not a tree”.
In the previous meditation we considered the principle of change, what change is, it’s components, it’s advantages, etc.
In the next few days, however, we will look at how we can actually implement change.
It has been discovered that people react to change in three main ways:
1. Resist change
2. Tolerate change
3. Embrace change
The first group of people are those that behave like the Pharisees and scribes. They are the folks that believe things must remain the way they are, no matter what. They repel change. They fight it with everything at their command. They get on the offensive when you mention the word ‘change’. These folks don’t amount to anything in life; they live average lifestyles for life.
Friend, quit this group. Develop an open mind that can look at things from different perspectives. The sad thing about this group is that they are reactive, not proactive. A wise man referred to this group by a statement I love, he said, “Some people will change when they see the light; others change only when they feel the heat.” Hear this:
Psalms 119:105: “Thy word [is] a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” (KJV)
