Are you constantly trying to change people?

“..work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” Philippians 2:12, ESV.

Don’t let your relationships be ruined because you’re constantly trying to change people. The truth is…

You can’t change:

• How people feel
• How they respond
• What they think
• What they believe
• How they love
• How they live their life

However, you can change:

• How you feel
• How you respond
• What you think
• What you believe
• How you love
• How you live your life

Don’t spend so much time trying to change people, their feelings, their mind, their moods, their life, or their habits. God didn’t call us to change anyone. That’s His job. We have a hard enough time trying to change ourselves, let alone someone else. Accept people the way they are and let God do the rest. Focus on what you can do, which is work on you. The more someone sees your life improving for, the better and the more they see you walking in humility, the more they may be inspired to change.

Prayer: Father God, I ask forgiveness for any time I didn’t accept who you’ve accepted. Forgive me for any time I’ve tried to do your job of changing people. I humble myself right now and ask that you help me Lord to focus on working on my self and let you work on others with your love and grace. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  1. Working on me…..that’s a big job and every time I get 2 steps ahead the devil tries to throw as many curve balls as he can my way. I stumble and I fall and feel like my life is on repeat sometimes but I never stop loving God and being thankful for all he has blessed me with. I am so ready to *win* over my own worldly ways and live out the path God has for me if only I would stop defeating myself.

    2. Afternoon My Sister in Christ, your comment touched me. Our gracious Father has designed your path before the foundations of the world. He has made you my sister wonderfully and fearfully made and only you can walk the path He has created for you.
      I hear you when you say 2 steps forward and here comes the devil to knock you down. He’s coming at you because he knows you are Wonderfully and Fearfully made and a child of the Most High God. Be of good courage and do not fear because nothing can separate God’s love from you. He’s got you. Run the race my Sister 🤗

  7. My prayer the night before was that the Lord would change me and to help me work on myself that I may not continue to feel defeated, helpless and sorry for myself. That it was me and no one else to cause me to feel sorry for myself. Hence, this wonderful message this morning, that I ought to work out my own salvation. Praise God for His Divine message to me. Thank God for the Blessings of DOTK.
