Don't Want To But Need To

Both as  children and as an adults, many of us have things in our lives that we should be doing to improve  our lives. There are things we all can do to improve our health or ourselves personally . Also we can do things to improve our relationships with our, children, spouses, family members and more important all of us can improve our relationship with God. But one question always remains in each of our minds and hearts, why won't we improve or change the  things that we know would better our life and also improve our relationships with the people we love ? Is it because we are too stubborn? Or is it because we have to much pride? Some may say its too late to change and also that they are set in their ways. Even with a Doctor telling  some people that if you do not change or stop what you are doing it could lead to death,even then there are those who refuse to change.They would make silly statements like ,Everyone has to die from something or they would say, Everyone will die, so why not die happy? Sometimes it makes one wonder why? Why is it that we refuse to do the right things and relish in doing the wrong thing? Why do we hold on to the popular beliefs that its to late to change or fool ourselves into believing that , the reason that we do not change is because that is just the way we are or that its just genetic? Maybe its because some have themselves, believing that its in their nature to act a certain way or be a certain way. Therefore that means everyone else in the world will just have to get used to it and accept them the way they are, because they are not going to change for anybody, not even their selves.To some that might sound good or even be popular in some circles, but to God our Father in Heaven that is, foolish or selfish. I have heard both men and women saying these very words that makes any intelligent person wonder why won't they change or  do right?
The biggest reason why most will not change is because most people are being influenced by bad people. Some are raised in bad environments others are influenced by the people they surround themselves with. But ever person that lives on the Earth is mainly influenced by the devil. It is his job to do what ever it takes to keep people from being closer to God. Once people realize that devil is the enemy and he is doing what ever it takes to make them do the wrong  or sin , then those who fear God will change. So if you are a drug addict; alcoholic; over weight and need to exercise; on prescription medicine and refuse to take your medicine; having a affair with a married person or doing anything that you know is wrong, then you need to change. I know you don't want to, but you really need to change. God loves you and he really wants the best for his people. As Gods people we all must realize that we only have one life to live, one body and while we live plenty of chances to get it right. So while we have breath in our body, do what most don't want to and change your life. Do what you need to and become one of Gods children.
Have a blessed day,
Timothy 3:2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, uplifted in pride, given to bitter words, going against the authority of their fathers, never giving praise, having no religion,
James 4:6 But he gives more grace. So that the Writings say, God is against the men of pride, but he gives grace to those who make themselves low before him.
