Food For Thought: Change

Change is a strange fact of life. One second you think one way and then suddenly you no longer think that way. The crazy part is that we almost never see a shift in our own paradigm coming. I’ve always been a “lone wolf” in business and prefer being single to being in a relationship… and then “BAM!!!” suddenly I’m in a business with three other people and in a serious personal relationship with one of those people. Both changes have been good for me.

I remember when I didn’t know what Genesis 6 was about, and had no clue that when I played Chuck Missler’s Genesis 6 study, my entire theological position would change. I remember when I didn’t know Israel was black, and that trying to disprove it would lead to the biggest change in how I study scripture and look at life in general.

Before my grandfather passed, he would always say grace at the dinner table. At the end, he’d say “All the days of my appointed time, I wait for my change to come. My change is sure to come.” He modified it from a verse found in Job.

“If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.” – Job 14:14

It was a constant reminder that some kind of change is coming. I didn’t think much of it then, but it seems more significant now that I’m older and looking back on it.

Now in 2019 we could be months, days, years, minutes, or seconds away from our curse being lifted, and at the point all things will change. The world will never go back to being like it is right now. This takes me back to something I learned in jail… the only days that matter are the first day and the last day. We are about to be released from 400 years of injustice and oppression. For some it’s encouraging, but for others it may be frightening. For those that are scared of the change that’s about to occur, rest assured in the following:

“For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.” – Malachi 3:6

Change is coming for the better. Hang on and stay encouraged.

By Black History In The Bible

"And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God." - John 8:45-47
