Now Think On This – Change by Steve Martin – Love For His People, Inc.

Dec. 28, 2017
Greetings from Charlotte, North Carolina.
Another year is almost complete with the new one to come. As expected, many of us have aspirations to be fulfilled…especially the ones that weren’t already.
When do they happen? Can we do anything to quicken the timetable?
In my latest Now Think On This message, I share on CHANGE. Maybe you are looking for one now, or really need one? My prayer is that His will be done according to His word for you. That is the best way to go.
Be blessed with ahava and shalom,
Steve Martin

Change – Now Think On This
 by Steve Martin
“Moab has been at ease since his youth; he has also been undisturbed, like wine on its dregs, and he has not been emptied from vessel to vessel, nor has he gone into exile. Therefore he retains his flavor, and his aroma has not changed.” (Jeremiah 48:11, NASU)
From what I can tell, it wasn’t a good thing that Moab, written about in this Scripture verse, didn’t change. In fact, it sounds like rather than being a pleasant smell his flavor became undesirable. Does that happen when we resist or refuse, to change?
With my limited understanding of winemaking, the winery has to make sure the wine process continues by pouring the liquid from one vessel to another. Otherwise, the sediment that settles at the bottom of the barrel taints the wine, affecting the outcome in flavor. Now that wouldn’t be good for the finished product. The pouring process is an essential part of the best that is yet to come at the end.
I have found it to be true also in the human spirit. This is one reason why change is so important in our life. When we settle in one place, content to let things be as they are, without ruffling the feathers, or making waves, our spirit becomes tainted with the sediments that have fallen to the bottom.
Rather than being poured out into the next vessel, to have that be left behind, these particles work themselves back into our soul. If left as that, certain undesirables can be stirred up. Such things as bitterness, unforgiveness, and resentment work themselves up to the surface again, never being left behind as they should be through forgiveness and forgetting what should be left behind.

I would be graceful if you would support Love For His People by buying a copy for yourself, and one for a friend as a gift.
