Do You Want the Change or the Blessing

Leave a comment


By Yolanda Kennedy-Edwards (Reference: Pastor L. Timothy Dates)

John 5:6 – When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?” 

Are you desperate and determined for a change? Some people are desperate for a change, but not determined to do what is necessary for the change.

You’ve got to be willing to look at your situation and see change occurring from various perspectives.

Do you want the change or blessings enough not to care what people think or say about you?

Something to think about: Some people want a change, but are reluctant to receive it. Before you receive your blessing, you have to do an assessment to determine if you really want the blessing, which means you are ready to accept the responsibility and accountability of the blessing. Often times, we want the blessing or change without the responsibility or accountability.

Prayer Starter: Lord, prepare me for the change I am seeking. I realize that with change, often comes trials to help make me stronger. I come leaning not to my own understanding, but placing my trust in you. I understand that change may not come the way I see it occurring, so help me see change occurring from different perspectives…
