In the hustle and bustle of life, change seems to always be a moment away from never.  We are always in the frame-mind of self-awareness and that has caused many to flow sorrowfully down that deceitful river-denial.  Denial is a direct opponent to anything that speaks to change.  It keeps truth from branding itself into our hearts and making it self known through the manifestation of freedom.  It holds us hostage in the prisons of our past and it determines to confine us within the faculties of our minds at present.  Denial is another silent-killer and it's killing hopes and dreams everyday.

Change is the way of life.  Change is the epitome of the Christian faith.  Jesus said that less we change and be like little children, we shall never inherit the kingdom of heaven.   Because change is inevitable, there are two options for change: positive or negative.  Both bear its stream of consequences and both are left to choice.  Changing for good is as simple as changing for God.   The motive and the intent are found in Him and therefore the focus of change is managed based on an original design thought of before our very creation in our mother's womb.  Whose ever had a true encounter with the Lord an had not a wonderful change?  No one!  No wonder Tremaine Hawkins sings with such conviction, "A wonderful change has come over me!"  Only a person who has experienced a life-altering change can proclaim with fervor such a declaration.  I believe it begins in the heart which leads to the permanence of the event. 

"For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved."

Roman 10:10

What a wonderful change, indeed!  Being able to touch Glory and experience the forever changing-power of its manifestation is astounding and it is achievable.  A genuine thirst and hunger for righteousness and a determination that ENOUGH is ENOUGH are needed in the mind of the one who desires change.  Insatiable yearnings for destiny and purpose within maintain this change for good.  It's those inward forces of God that fuel the fire for positive change and sets the course for divine destiny.  Who you are to become is determined by a decision to change.  Why not change for good and change for the good?  Each good change births a new dimension of God's revelation to you until we reach the ultimate change:

" I declare to you, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed- in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality."

I Corinthian 15: 50-53

This change will be a change of ultimate victory where we'd be just like Christ for we'd then see Him as He truly is.  What a wonderful change, indeed!
