DailyRead-Art-wlogoReading: Luke 15:18
I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.

 

Two words are necessary for change – I will.

The prodigal son made that foundational resolution, and it changed his life. No one gets far in life without resolve. Where there is no resolution there is no revolution. The prodigal would have missed the feast had he not resolved to go to the father. Daniel would have never risen to power had he not resolved to follow God’s diet plan. The four lepers at the gate of Samaria would have starved had they not resolved to take their chances with the Arameans.

Neglecting needed change is accepting a life sentence without parole. Indecision is a very efficient jailor. Don’t run from resolutions; run to them. Set goals, seek the help of the Lord, have others hold you accountable, step out in faith, and celebrate the wins. If not, you can just keep feeding the pigs and dreaming of what could have been.

The Apostle Paul said, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” People who trust the Lord saying, “I can” and “I will” become, by His grace, people who say “I am” and “I did.”
