We continued our series, The Power of Same, this week. The message was called, The Problem is the Pattern. It was one of the most helpful messages for the new year that I have ever heard.
In this message, my husband pushed the point, Resolve cannot change what routine created. In other words, the faith to step out is worthless without the faithfulness to stick it out.
He showed us that the majority of our problems lead back to a bad pattern we have developed. We interpret our decisions as our destiny when really it is a product of our patterns. For instance, I may say that I am not a morning person. And while there may be some truth to that, I make my mornings even worse because of my night time patterns of staying up to late and not preparing for the following day. My heart cannot overpower my habits.
Thank goodness that Jesus broke the code. Because of Jesus, I can change my pattern whether it is a pattern of sin or just a pattern of poor choices. If this is resonating with you, you really must listen to the message. There was so much scripture in the message that I am leaving out.
Have a great Monday!
