“I know what I need to do BUT…”
Most of the changes we need to make are self-evident and within our grasp. The gap between what we want and who we are is revealed by that little three letter word: “BUT.”
- “I know what I need to do BUT…”
- “I know what the Bible says BUT…”
- “I intend on it one day BUT…”
- “I’d love to try ______ BUT…”
It does reveal something deeper. Will power is not enough to conquer our deepest fears, doubts, and misconceptions about ourselves and others. To get off our “buts” we need to see the One who can bring real change for who He is and give our lives over to Him. Nothing closes the gaps in our lives like believing God can do what He says. And He’s delivered on His promises with no BUTS.
“if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come” ~ 2 Corinthians 5:17.
