When looking for a real change, it’s better to start from below. Jesus came down to our level, down to the dirt and mud that is human life. Knowing God also means knowing yourself better. If you recognize a need to change, then explore the source of the problem. For example, being aggressive, fearful, or controlling are symptoms of a deeper issue to be resolved. Get down into the dirt and discover yourself.
Jesus Christ was perfectly humble. The Spirit of God was completely free to do his work in Jesus. The humble heart is the heart that allows the Spirit to enter and work. This takes time. Don’t rush the process, and don’t ignore it either.
When he comes, the Spirit doesn’t need you to to hide the mess or straighten things up. He wants to see the dirt and clutter. Let the Holy Spirit clean the house of your soul.
Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come.
2 Corinthians 5:17
But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
I can do all things in him who strengthens me.
