Embracing Change
By Victoria Osteen - Jun 12, 2015

There's one thing that's guaranteed in life: change. People change, fashion changes, technology changes, seasons change. Change happens.

Some people struggle with change because they think it's difficult or because they feel comfortable where they are. If we aren't careful, we can easily become complacent and coast through life, never really growing or experiencing what we are fully capable of. We have to change in order to grow, and when we refuse change, we limit our lives. We limit our options, and ultimately, we limit what God can do in our lives. That's why it's so important to stay flexible and be willing to adapt in order to embrace the new things God has in store.

So many people live narrow lives based on what they've experienced in their past. If no one else in their family went to college, they think they can't either. They let other people define their limits, or they allow their resources or circumstance to define their limits. If that's you today, realize that you are not limited by your past, the economy, or what you have been told you can or can't do. You are only limited by your own belief. Your thoughts drive your belief system. So be proactive and renew your mind to the Word of God. Be open for change; be open for the new things God has in store.

"See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? ..." (Isaiah 43:19, NIV)
