Psalm 138:8 (KJV) The LORD will perfect that which concerns me.
(MSG: Finish what you started in me, God. Your love is eternal…)
Have you had a life-altering experience that caused you to rethink a core belief and, as a result, you came to a more balanced, Biblical view of life? We will experience paradigm shifts that break the illusion that we are in control. They will change our questions from “How do I get rid of this inconvenience (illness, suffering, heartache)?” to “How can I make this into an occasion for insight and growth?” There are healthy responses (pray, learn, grieve, surrender, let patience do its perfect work, choose gratitude, look for grace). There are unhealthy responses (denial, incessant busyness, attention to distractions, addictions). An underlining conviction that God is at work in your life will anchor you in tough times. What paradigm shift have you experienced that became a movement that grounded you more deeply in God?
