Every Christian has experienced times when trials seem overwhelming. We naturally wonder: Where is God? Is God letting us down? Does He care? If God is good, then why is He allowing evil to triumph?
Someone may be making your life miserable. There may be another situation making you miserable. Whoever or whatever you’re up against there is no wall so strong that God is not stronger. What seems unchangeable is not. God can change hearts. God can change situations. Trust Him for the outcome.
When John came to the end of his letter, he underscored the things every believer can know with absolute assurance.
When times are tough what matters is your focus. If you focus on your problems they’ll seem insurmountable. If you focus on God you’re trusting Him for the outcome. And nothing is impossible for God.
Life is complex. Our world is more complicated than it was even 20 or 30 years ago. Even though many of the values we grew up with now seem passe the basics never change—they’re summarized in Micah 6:8, to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
The word rendered “transform,” metamorphoo, means “to be changed from one thing into another.” This Greek word is transliterated to render the English word metamorphosis.
