Marriage from A to Z

Principles for a Successful Marriage

“Do you want to see a change?”

“I am tired of dealing with this!”  When are you going to make a change? You say that you are going to change but you end up remaining the same. Husbands and wives argue because they have been going through the same thing for years. Is change really possible?  Do you want to see a change?

What does it mean to change?  So glad you asked, to change is to transform or convert, to substitute another or others for; exchange for something else.  It is also defined as to make the form, nature, content, future course of something different from what it is or from what it would be if left alone.

Do you have an area in your life or in your marriage that you want to see changed?  I know I do!  As difficult as it is for people to change, change is possible.  Many of us are frustrated because we want to change, we want our spouse to change or we want a situation  in our marriage to change.

Here are two prescriptions for change.

  1. Keep going to the Change Agent – 2 Corinthians 5:17  says, “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.”  I have read this verse many times but for some reason the “In Christ” stands out to me.  When we are in Christ, He makes us new.  He is the Change Agent, no change is too hard for Him. The more time that we spend with Him, the more we change.  It is impossible to be in Christ and remain the same.  No matter what kind of change you need, keep going to the Change Agent. He will help you to do things differently on a consistent basis.
  2. Keep putting truth in your mind and apply it! – Romans 12:2 says “And be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind . . . ”  Feed your mind with God’s Word.  Find a scripture that relates to the change that you want to make and keep feeding your brain with the Word. Change is possible but you must renew your mind.  Different thoughts can produce different actions.

God is in the life changing business.  He changes things, He changes people and He changes situations.  If you really want to see a change take the prescription given.

Until next week . . .
