“O sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth! Sing to the Lord, bless (affectionately praise) His name; show forth His salvation from day to day” Psalm 96:1-2, Amplified
“Sing to Me a new song. The song I give to you will lift you up and not oppress you. It’s a song that will remind you of My truth. It’s a song that will breathe life into you. Sing, My Daughter, sing and worship Me with all your heart. The spirit of heaviness will be removed as you sing to Me the words I give to you. I know how to reach you where you are. I often reach you with a song that I know will bless you. I long to be gracious to you. I raise you up so I can bless you and fill your heart completely. I love to hear your voice. There’s not a sound more beautiful than hearing you sing to Me. I’m ministering to you My strength, wrapping you in My love, and calming all your fears as you sing to Me. Says the Lord.”
(Read Isaiah 61:3; 1 John 4:18; Isaiah 30:18)
“..work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” Philippians 2:12, ESV.
Don’t let your relationships be ruined because you’re constantly trying to change people. The truth is…
You can’t change:
• How people feel
• How they respond
• What they think
• What they believe
• How they love
• How they live their life
However, you can change:
• How you feel
• How you respond
• What you think
• What you believe
• How you love
• How you live your life
Don’t spend so much time trying to change people, their feelings, their mind, their moods, their life, or their habits. God didn’t call us to change anyone. That’s His job. We have a hard enough time trying to change ourselves, let alone someone else. Accept people the way they are and let God do the rest. Focus on what you can do, which is work on you. The more someone sees your life improving for, the better and the more they see you walking in humility, the more they may be inspired to change.
Prayer: Father God, I ask forgiveness for any time I didn’t accept who you’ve accepted. Forgive me for any time I’ve tried to do your job of changing people. I humble myself right now and ask that you help me Lord to focus on working on my self and let you work on others with your love and grace. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
