Time for the Seeds to Grow

Yesterday I mentioned that the Park Service at Yosemite National Park was reconstructing a meadow where new pines were growing that would take quite a few years to grow to maturity.
Another lesson we can draw from this illustration is that just as it takes time to grow a tree, it takes time to retrain your brain to biblically process daily life. You’ve been used to thinking the way you think for many years. What makes you think you can reverse this method of processing life overnight? The Bible calls overnight success a miracle. God can replace your drug of choice with Christ-like character in any area of your life right now.
What if, on the other hand, He chooses to use the other life change process He laid out in Scripture – the Set Free Nowww principles? If He chooses to have you walk with Him through the later, the “N” principle is very important to grasp. Never give up on yourself, Jesus won’t. The biblical process of changing your thinking, thus changing your behavior, takes time.
I heard a very successful author once say that it takes 10 years to make an overnight success. The Park Rangers know it takes time to grow a tree. And your Heavenly Father knows it takes time to change your life. This is why He not only loves despite your drugs of choice, but He also gives you His grace and mercy to grow through His change process as He removes them. So keep practicing the SFN principles each day. Christ-like character is on it’s way!
