God Can Change Us
God can change our hearts. Very often we hear parents whose children have broken their hearts say, “I’ve given up on them.” We know these words are said from a heart that has been crushed, but rest assured God still has the power to intercede and to turn not only their lives around, but also the lives of the parents. I’ve heard testimonies of how God has blessed people who were on their way to hell but God changed them. We should never discount the grace and mercy of God. In Acts 26:14 we find these words:
“We all fell down, and I heard a voice saying to me in Aramaic, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me? It is useless for you to fight against my will.”
Here we see the conversion of Saul (later known as Paul). His intentions were less than honorable; he was about to destroy not only himself, but also the people of God. Not only did God change him, but He used him for His glory. My prayer today is that we testify how God has changed us to others.
