“….do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God…” —Romans 12:2 (NKJV)

Ninety-nine per cent of people you meet today will tell you that they need a change and that they are really hoping God will give them one. But the truth is that the change anybody needs in their lives is themselves. It might sound ridiculous but that is just the truth. Although not many are willing to accept this but think about it, until and unless you are willing to change yourself, nothing will change in your life. You might say but how? I will explain. Where you are right now in your life, is as a result of your ideas, character, attitudes, perspectives and ways of doing things. If you want to move to the next level and live a better life, you must be willing to change all these areas mentioned above and the change will set in. Until and unless you change your mode of operation and the way you think and do your things, there are things that will never change.

Let us take, for example, someone who is lazy. If he ever wants to change the results that laziness brings into his life, he must choose to become hardworking. The moment he steps up in this area every other thing in his life will change. So, with this, you realize that you are the change that you need. Unfortunately, many of God’s people are busy seeking change externally without changing themselves first. But if change is truly going to be established it must come from within you. Therefore, get to work and begin to outline the things you need to change about yourself. It might be your words, your ideas, your manner of approach or maybe your prayer life. If you can enforce these changes, I guarantee you a change in the shortest possible time. When God wanted to change Abraham’s life and give him children, God had to first change his name from Abram meaning exalted father to Abraham meaning father of many. The reason God had to start with the name was that He wanted Abraham’s thoughts about Himself to change. And when that was done, it was easy for all other things to fall in place. The change that occurs within you has a way of making everything around you respond to you differently. So, take advantage of this article and change you, so that change can set in. Praise God!


The change that occurs within you causes everything about you to respond differently!


Dear heavenly father, your word has opened my eyes to see and know the truth about change, therefore I declare that the ability, wisdom and grace to make the necessary changes for my major changes rest on me in the name of Jesus. Amen!
