Everyone has something about themselves they dislike and would like to change, yet most people try to transform themselves through their own efforts. Genuine and permanent transformation only happens with God’s help. The process begins when we stop resisting Him and yield to the Holy Spirit. We must constantly listen for God’s instructions and guidance; hearing from Him is the result of spending time with Him and developing a relationship with Him. Following the Spirit’s lead is critical to any positive change; we must let Him get ahead of us to point out the way to go in life. Not even Jesus did anything without the Holy Spirit; He had the wisdom from above to give Him success. We have the same wisdom and power available to us that makes us successful.
