Change What You’re Doing

Are you currently experiencing something that makes you angry, depressed, dissatisfied, or frustrated?  If your answer was yes, then I have a follow-up question.  What are you doing to change the situation?  If you’re doing the same things that led to the situation, let me advise you otherwise.  Doing the same things over and over, but expecting different results, is defined as insanity.

Job was in a frustrating situation.  He kept complaining, and the situation didn’t improve.  He kept listening to insensitive “friends,” and the situation didn’t change.  He kept questioning God’s wisdom and sovereignty, and his situation went from bad to worse.

How did things improve for Job?  He changed what he was doing.  Instead of complaining, listening to insensitive friends, and questioning God, he prayed.  He did things God’s way, and look at what happened: the Lord restored his fortunes!

The message is clear – to experience different results, you have to implement different solutions.  Jeff Connors once said, “To achieve something you never have, you must do something you’ve never done.”  Maybe it’s time to change what you’re doing.  Do it God’s way, and you’ll surely get God’s results!

Thought to Consider:
How would God respond to the situation you’re facing?
