You Can’t Force People to Change

I’m sure this will be the first time you hear this, but you can’t make people change, you’re not God. Your job is not change or convert, your job is to inspire. You can change more minds, by showing by doing, than you can just offering wise words of advice. Most of us are hard headed, don’t think so? Ask your parents…

When someone is ready to change, they will. 

If only we understood that we are merely actors in God’s play – set and ready to be used in another person’s life for reasons unknown to us. We are supporting actors in the most beautiful story in the universe – God’s story. But…But…We get side-tracked into thinking we’re the stars of the show, that we can manipulate or change how the story will go.

And we wonder why we are constantly disappointed…

God knows the when, the where, the why, and the how. So show up, do your part – the rest you leave up to God. You must accept that if you can’t do anything else about it, let it go. And if you still think you can change the person or situation, then the issue is with you.

You want to see a change in someone? You be the embodiment of that change you seek. In other words, Inspire them.

Because at the end of the day, you are what you DO, not what you SAY you’ll do.

Don’t worry about anything, instead pray about everything. Philippians 4:6
