‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’ – Jeremiah 29:11
One of the hardest things we pass through in life is our adaptability to change. What scares us most is change even though we know it is the only constant thing in life. Successful people anticipate it whiles the rest are scared of it.
What scares us?
Change can be so subtle or so violent; for example ignore something for a bit longer and the first Law of Motion which Issac Newton describes as Inertia would actually set in. When you do not know what is happening around you how can you plan for change? It very difficult to adapt to change when you do not know what is changing.
We are all changing but into what? What are we changing into? Our inability to recognise change is a big personal battle everyday. We are scared, because we do not see ourselves good enough to stand up to challenges in challenging times. Christians over emphasies on evil forces but they do not prepare for a rainy day.
You are your own greatest enemy.
They are so adamant to learn new things even so relactant to study. We fear innovation! But if we can or are perpared to learn (2 Tim. 2:15), we can share ideas. In sharing ideas, we individually gain more than we think (Isa. 1:18-20). We have depressed situations because we find it difficult to redirect our thoughts to positivity and we therefore get frustrated.
God knows the thoughts He has of us (Jer. 29:11). He wants to give us an expected end. What end? The end that we expect. To prevent us being scared, we need to turn (2 Chron. 7:14) and return to the power of God on earth; the Holy Spirit. He is a gentle one who would never come in unless you allow Him (Rev. 3:20). You are God’s investment on earth so He put Him watch over you (John 14:16; John 16:13)
