inner work

Dale Cresap's picture

Have you realized the need for a change and moved to a new location, job, or church (or marriage) as a result? Were you disappointed to find that you encountered the same problems in the new location or situation? The problem is that you brought your old self with you, and the cause of the problem in the first place was still in effect. Some people call this running from your problems (but your old self can keep up with you). Sometimes situational changes are called for but they should be in response to internal changes. Do your internal work of transformation and doors will open for your situation to conform to your inner changes.

Major Changes

Dale, I totally agree with your assessment, and major changes like a job should only be done because the Father wants us to move and for no other reason. He has placed us in a position to help us grow and to share our life in Christ in the place of His choosing.
