Love you all, praying for you.
I just love God’s Word. It gives you truth and wisdom for life. Have you ever noticed a skill, habit, or character quality that you are missing? Why do people lack a skill or discipline? Humility. It’s easy to acquire a missing skill, habit or discipline. Ask someone who has it, how they got it, what they do to practice it – and just do what they do. The disciples asked Jesus – teach us to pray. Why did they ask Him? Because He was the best prayer they knew. If you have a weakness in your life, a missing skill or discipline. Ask God who to ask. Ask them what they did and do to learn and practice this skill? And do what they do. Why is this so difficult? Because people aren’t humble. They lack skills, disciplines or habits, because they like what they do - more. They think they know better. They would rather do what they do, than the person who possesses the skill, habit or discipline. They think they know better. Praying that you will put humility into practice. If you are going to get a different result, you have to change. The first change of any change, is a change of mind. You have to change your mind. Do you know what that really is? Repent. Metanoia – to think differently. My way isn’t working, and I’m going to change my thinking, so I can change my action, so I can change my way. The way I operate, the way I live my life. Short of that, you will never change. Praying that you will ask God, “What change do you want in me?” Who does that change well already (we all have strengths and weaknesses). You can learn from someone whose strength is one of your weaknesses. I never hear you cuss? Who don’t you? How do you do that? I notice you are always on time. Why is that? How do you do that? I notice, you never say anything negative about anybody. Why is that? How do you do that? I notice you don’t stress out financially, you seem to always have money for the things you need. Why is that? How do you do that? I notice that your car, your house or yard is immaculate – why is that? How do you do that? I notice that your client list is always growing. Why is that? How do you do that? I notice that your marriage seems happy, that your spouse is devoted to you. Why is that? How do you do that? I notice that your children are so well behaved. Why is that? How do you do that? Is there something that God wants you walking in that you’re not? Have you ever thought of asking somebody, and do what they do? Are you willing? Are you humble? What could happen if you did? Praying that you will ask God if there is someone who is skilled at what you lack, who to ask, and who to model. Doesn’t mean that everything that works for them will work for you… but it probably will. What change does God have for you? Are you willing? Are you humble?
