It seems like changes are all we know these days.
The price of food? Changing.
The economy? Changing.
The world? Changing.
But God—-never changes. His Word assures us of the unchanging ways of God. “For I am the LORD, I change not;…” Malachi 3:6
With the uncertainties of our tomorrow, we can rest easy in the resolute knowledge that God knows all there is to know about our tomorrow. There are things He plans, and things He allows in His sovereignty. We are not to question either.
That is easier said than done. With all the things that we have lived through, and even died through, we have seen the hand of God in every circumstance. I bet you are wondering why I said “died through”.
This is why: In order to get to the place where God can fully use us to our absolute fullest potential — we must die daily—of ourselves.
We desire so strongly to be in that place, of absolute “usability”, we are asking God to work in our lives as never before. “Show us the things which need to be changed so that we can be changed—to walk fully in His Spirit—and not in our own selfish ways.”

What changes are headed your way for the coming year?
Some you may already be aware of, some will be unexpected. They are only unknown to your heart—God knows full well what 2011 will bring for each of us. And we must fully trust in, and rely on Him.
He is worthy.
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end.” Isaiah 9:6-7(a) NIV
Merry Christmas! From our hearts to yours!
