We have gotten to meet many people with our life and may think to ourselves “Well ____ will never change.” In Acts 9, God changed Saul to become the person we know as Paul. This radical transformation was first initiated by God, responded by Saul and Ananaias was sent as the changed agent. This encourages us that even when we don’t see changes in people, we should not give up on the person. Instead, we must wait actively and pray faithfully. We must trust that God knows the right time and knows what He is doing.
We want change and we want them quick. God desires for us to change too. But the change that He desires for us is much better than the change we want for ourselves. The change that Jesus wants for us is more than just behavioral change; it involves our heart change.
