What condition is your condition?

The sad thing... when people know what condition they are in, and stay in the condition they are in!!

Proverbs 28:13-"He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy."

It is a sad day when someone, anyone, thinks they have to be stuck where they are in life. Crying out constantly for help, yet not be willing to seek change, or follow counsel. Too many times this happens, and people either come to the place where they accept it, or they hunger and desire to change it. The problem is, they still try and do it on their own.

They, for some reason, will not turn to the One where change is possible. They just do not listen to that still small voice that says, "Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28

They still feel like they have to change something in their life before they can come to Jesus and ask for help. This happens whether you know Him as Savior or not. People feel like they have to do something. They do not. All they need to do is humble themselves before Him, with a broken and contrite heart. Humbly ask Him to make the changes necessary to survive in this world.

If it is Salvation you need, ask, trust, and believe with all your heart, He is calling you already. The conviction and hopelessness we feel, is the place we need to be to hear Him calling! He will change you, He will transform you, and make you new. Right then you know, that it was Jesus, because you, on your own have not been able to succeed. You have not had any value in your life, any purpose, now you do. That's Jesus!

If you are saved and struggling, the same applies to you. You need to humble yourself before God, repent and ask for His forgiveness. He is faithful and just and will forgive you and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. So do not get stuck and believe that the condition you are in is where you need to stay, or accept the complacency in our life and believe it is alright.

"Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. Casting all your care on Him, for He cares for you. Be sober, be vigilant; for your adversary the devil walk about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. I Peter 1:5-8
