I’m thinking about a question that was asked this evening— if you could have the perfect relationship (such as with your spouse, a loved one, etc.), what would it look like?
Some people think they have the power to change others. For example, they enter relationships believing that people will change simply because they are in that person’s life. When there are no changes, then they get disappointed.
The truth is we don’t have the power to change anyone, but God does. Ezekiel 36:26 says, “And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart” (NLT).
That perfect relationship that you want is possible— with God’s power. Pray that He changes your loved one, but most of all, ask Him to change you (Psalm 51:10).
