Chaplain's Chair

Posted by Anelda Lesch on

Since the start of 2023, we have been seeing the tidal wave of change that is taking place all around us. As the world changes, are you going to remain the same, or will you start to adapt and adjust? Are you going to be buffeted by the winds of change, or are you going to take a measured decision and alter those things in your life that need altering?
Interestingly Charles Colton in Lacon shares and says: “Habit will reconcile us to everything but change” Change does not happen spontaneously or overnight. In a world that is changing so radically, are you determined to be entrenched in your old habits? Or are you willing to make these modifications which will allow you to be a greater Christian witness? As you learn to put your trust in the Lord and his Word, knowing your true identity and walking in sonship, you will start to experience a different walk of life.
The story of an old lady dying in poverty is told. Above her dilapidated bed was her single most treasured possession. A letter given to her by her master when he had died. She had served him faithfully for many years, and he had given her this single document as her inheritance. Unable to read, she had placed it above her bed. A visitor administrating her last rites looked up and read the words, only to find that this was her lord’s last will and testament and that he had left everything he owned to her!
She had lived as a pauper not comprehending the fullness of the gift she had received.
Are you living in “poverty” when you could be living in Christ’s abundance of love, joy, peace, wisdom, grace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control?
During this year, let us make it one where we will explore the riches that are ours through our Father.
Romans 12:2 states: “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God”.
The renewing of your mind, is your responsibility. Do not wait for a crisis to knock on your door to change a habit or a way of thinking.
We are here to help you through your trauma, so that you can witness from a restored and resurrected spirit, and be a blessing to others and administer healing wherever you go.
