So You Think You’ve Changed…

…You may have experienced a seeming breakthrough or change of nature lately, but be careful because our basic nature never really changes. Like the thorn in Paul’s side that God would not take away, so are we all. But through the sufficiency of His grace, he positions us in safe places to overcome those things that would try to over come us. And as long as we

accept the help that He sends, and stay in the place of safety that He gives us, we are victorious. But when we refuse His help, or step outside of His safe place then we find ourselves being buffeted by the same old issues that we thought were no longer issues!

Don’t mistake being shielded from the effect of an issue as the same thing as it being taken away. Whatever or whoever God has sent into your life to protect you from falling, cling to it, or you will soon discover that you hadn’t changed after all.
