I hope you have been taking some time to watch the beautiful transformation of colors during this fall season. The mountains are clearly showing God’s handiwork as they reflect the beautiful reds and yellows that make me want to go for long, peaceful drives through winding mountain roads.
As you look at the beauty in the fall leaves, may I ask you a question? Are you seeing spiritual beauty within you? Are you seeing the kind of beauty that comes from inner change…the change that only Christ can make in your life?
If you truly want to experience a changed life, it is time to turn away from sinful behaviors, turn away from a stagnant, decaying way of life, and simply turn toward Christ. As my friend Pastor White from Mt. Zion church says, “Trust God and watch Him work.” You can’t bring about spiritual change on your own. You must make the decision to trust God and allow Him to change you, and then God will do what He promised. The book of Romans tells us, “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
It is time for you to release your hold on your life and turn it over to God. Let Him change your life for good. You will change inwardly, become beautiful in the eyes of the Lord, and become an example of a God-changed life to a world that desperately needs to see the power of God. Your life will take on a spiritual beauty that far exceeds the beauty of any gorgeous fall day.
If God can make fall colors so spectacular to our eyes, just imagine what He can do with your life. Go ahead…trust Him to make a work of art in you!
