Exodus 3:14. God said to Moses, “ I am that I am.”

Hebrews 13:8. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever!

Change is something we know well. We change our behavior to fit the occasion. We expect others to do the same. We even expect God to change according to our own self-interest desires. We want God to conform to our perceived needs and wants. The idea of us changing to His image makes us whimper and groan, “It’s too hard. It’s impossible.” We think it takes our power and ability to adjust ourselves to God. It is the work of the Holy Spirit to adjust our hearts and mind to God and His ways. Our only job is a willingness to allow Him to do so. We are to look to Him and obey Him through all circumstances. We are to trust His workings in and through us. Without acknowledging Jesus Christ as our Lord and Redeemer this trust is impossible. Without Him we remain rigid and un-moldable. Our question is will we allow ourselves to become pliable to God’s molding of us and stop trying to mold God to our own concepts of Him? He is so much more than our finite minds can ever contain. He wants to re-mold us into His Image, an image beyond our finite understanding. Let us say and mean the words in the old hymn, “Have Thine own way Lord….mold me and shape me after The will.”
