Do you realize you can love God with all your heart. . .be saved, sanctified, filled with the Holy Spirit. . .walk in the gifts of the Spirit. . .but not have it all together?
A few days ago, the kind of person I just described stopped by our offices for a chat. This person has a spiritual depth and love of the Lord. . .but he was focused on some unpleasant circumstances in his life.
My advice to him and to each of us is simple.
Stop looking at your circumstances. Create the circumstances you want instead of the ones you’ve got.
Dictionary.com defines circumstances as:
“a condition, detail, part, or attribute, with respect to time, place, manner, agent, etc., that accompanies, determines, or modifies a fact or event; a modifying or influencing factor:”
Let me tell you one fact that can’t be modified or changed.
