The Art Of Missing the Point

We spend a lot of time waiting and even praying for God to change our circumstances, paying little attention to why the circumstances have come into our lives. Instead, we focus on the circumstances – we talk, gripe, and complain about the circumstances, some incessantly. And God IS sometimes in the business of changing our circumstances. We see it throughout scripture.

But God’s greatest desire is to change me THROUGH my circumstances, to transform me into the image of His Son. How rare it is that we talk about what God is changing in us, what He’s teaching us in the circumstance, how He’s shaping and chiseling us into His image.

He wants me to gear up with the same way of thinking as Jesus, with a love and a passion for the will of God rather than the passions of my flesh.
