Changing the Culture

The culture around us finds ways to creep into our lives, but God gives us opportunities to change that. So let’s ask him to speak tenderly to us as he has done before when the deepest things in us cry out for the deepest things of Him. As he responds, let’s watch him carve his name deeply into the surface of our souls to create canals for currents of change to flow, empowering us to change the culture instead of allowing the culture to change us. Is God giving you a reason to change the culture around you? Are you sensing an urgency to speak out? Or perhaps you are simply sensing the need to stay consistent by just not conforming to the culture that pulls you away from the things of God? "Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land." -2 Chronicles 7:14
