“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV)
We all have desires, we all have hopes, and we all have plans for someday. It is a good thing to have dreams. Sadly, many dreams never become a reality because we simply never take the first step.
The same thing is true in our spiritual life. Have you ever said, I’ll live a more devoted life someday? I’ll pray more and study God’s word more diligently one day. I’ll strive to be a better Christian one day. Sadly, one day seldom arrives. There is a difference between a desire to change someday and to actually change. Do you really want change in your life? Have you started taking the first step? The Lord never changes a person against their will. The first step would be to submit to the will of God for your life. Remember God’s plan for your life are good plans. When we submit to His will, transformation takes place. You don’t just reluctantly conform to something but true change; transformation takes place. When transformation occurs, what you thought was an impossibility has become a reality in your life.
