Ready to change

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
    because he has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives
    and recovering of sight to the blind,
    to set at liberty those who are oppressed,

~ Luke 4:18, ESV ~


The most difficult act of our will and desire is to accept the fact that our concept of control is flawed. With that, we stand on the precipice of realizing our own powerlessness. Yet, we come to face the fact that we are not perfect and therefore lack the power to make necessary changes. When we come to embrace and accept the fundamental truth that we are not in control and are powerless. Here, we are ready to admit our need for change and are already engaged in changing.

Of our own will and desire, we are incapable of becoming perfect. Through our readiness to let go, to radically surrender our need of control, we become ready to be harmonious with our Heavenly Father and His divine will and purpose for our lives.

The word “poor” does not necessarily mean that a person is in absolute, abject poverty. It may mean that a person is weak or powerless. Jesus promises us freedom from our weakness. In a spiritual sense, it applies to every one of us. We all have been spiritually powerless and in need of being set free from our own illusions.

Today, let us attempt to become ready for the help and change we most stand in need of in life – a change that occurs through our faith and relationship in Jesus Christ.
