Enjoying Transformed Living this Year…

“…Be still before the Lord, all mankind, because he has roused himself from his holy dwelling.” Zechariah 2: 13 (NIV)

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Romans 12: 2a (NIV)

When you read the book of Zechariah, you will realise that the people God was addressing had felt that their previous years were difficult. If you, like them, are wondering why God allowed you to experience pain and difficulties in 2019, God wants you to know that He never left you because He never leaves His children. God is so mindful of us that even the Hebrew names recounted in the book of Zechariah (Zechariah 1: 1), literally translate to words that mean, “God remembers His promises to you, and will bless you in a timely manner, at the appointed time”! This is why we must not give up trusting God.

God is with us and He loves us to the extent that He describes His people the apple of His eye (Zechariah 2: 8). Now, we are the apple of His eye only because God has transformed us into His nature! This is why this same Scripture passage goes on to instruct all the earth to be still before the Lord. God lives in us, transforms our hearts, and stills the noise of problems that try to ruffle us. Even if you are worried about a recurring problem that has bothered you in previous years, God subdues and silences it, as He rouses Himself on behalf of His people.
