Absolutely NOTHING remains the same. God calls for change.... but do WE manipulate the steps and then shout "Look what God has done for me!!" Perhaps we need to stop, RE-evaluate our steps, leave them at the footstool and step back with open hands to be truly abandoned and surrendered for His lead....
God does not stop working on our behalf because we have bad behavior - even when that looks like He is waiting for you to get yourself out of the way.
“This is the kind of fast day I’m after: to break the chains of injustice, get rid of exploitation in the workplace, free the oppressed, cancel debts. What I’m interested in seeing you do is: sharing your food with the hungry, inviting the homeless poor into your homes, putting clothes on the shivering ill-clad, being available to your own families. Do this and the lights will turn on, and your lives will turn around at once. Your righteousness will pave your way. The God of glory will secure your passage. Then when you pray, God will answer. You’ll call out for help and I’ll say, ‘Here I am.’
Love you... love you....love you.... Keep your gaze fixed on the path, make note of the guardrails....♥
