How about you
Has God made changes in your heart recently? Has it been difficult to realize that circumstances around you have NOT changed?

Right now, followers of Jesus are living in a time when He is doing work and making changes in our hearts. The Prophet Ezekiel looked forward to the time God would do this when he wrote:
"I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws."
And Paul confirmed that this time has come when he wrote these words to the church in Corinth:
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!"
Becoming a new creation is exciting enough, but a time IS coming when Jesus will make all things new! Read these prophetic words from the book of Isaiah:
"Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind."
Now THAT will be an exciting time! But for now, remember that if you are in Christ, there are some exciting changes going on in your heart and trust Him with the circumstances that haven't changed.
