Hearts are heavy everywhere as we contemplate a senseless loss of lives. As we, as a people, come together to pray for the families of those who have been impacted, we are also struggling with the consequences to our own thoughts and perspective.
2 Chronicles 7:14 NLT
“Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.”
God offers us plenty of opportunities to be the catalyst to inspire change. Change that begins within each one of us. These opportunities begin with our part towards that potential change. IF.
IF. If is a tiny word that carries huge potential. If introduces us to the potential for change; change that heals. If we humble ourselves. If we pray. If we seek God’s face. If we turn from our wicked ways. If we could do these things, then change would be possible. That change begins with us.
God’s provision is eternal. We must be responsible for our own part. Humbly pray, seek God’s presence, turn away from the evil that exists in our world and instead turn towards God. If we can do our part, God will certainly do His part. If. Be a catalyst for change; change within our our own thoughts and prospective can inspire change within our own sphere of influence. We each, within ourselves, have the potential to be the catalyst for that change.
