3 As I briefly wrote earlier, God himself revealed his mysterious plan to me. 4 As you read what I have written, you will understand my insight into this plan regarding Christ. 5 God did not reveal it to previous generations, but now by his Spirit he has revealed it to his holy apostles and prophets.
Life isn’t easy. Rich, poor, married, single, young, old, no matter what race or religion- everyone has a tough life. We are broken people living with broken people. This was true in our past and it is true now. So, are things going to get any better? You don’t have to ask that question when you are a follower of Jesus and when you act like your best true self. When you find yourself doing what God wants done things will fall into place. Then life always gets better.
If you want to make a change in your life, it doesn’t really matter where you live or what you do, you will be bringing the same circumstances along with you. Your perception is a powerful influence on what is right or wrong in your world. If you want a change, if you want your life to be richer, then it starts with being open to being transformed by God to start seeing things through his eyes.
No matter where you live or what you do, people will still be broken, you will still be broken, but you will begin to see beyond the brokenness. Like Jesus, you will be able to act like your best, true self, no matter what is happening around you.
What is one thing in your current way of thinking that is getting in the way of your joy?
