Renovate House Meaning Improve And Construct BuildingTo renovate is to refurbish, a makeover, to rebuild, reconstruct, and my favorite, it is a facelift.  So my wife and I recently decided to do some minor renovations to our home.  The only problem is that there is no such thing as minor renovations!  When they renovate, everything is turned upside down, moved around, out of place, and unsettling.  “What a mess!”  “Maybe we shouldn’t have done this?”  “Maybe we should have just kept it the same way?”

But we know when they finish, it will be a transformation, it will be better, newer, restored.  Wait?  Isn’t that what God wants to do in our lives?  To renovate, to take out the old and reconstruct us into a new person.  There may be some changing, and definitely things will be out of place, but God is doing a new work in our lives.  He doesn’t want us to stay the same.  It will be unsettling, and we will struggle with the battle of the old nature, but God has wonderful plans for us, plans to prosper and be rebuilt into the image He created us to be, His Image, a facelift, or, a life-lift.

So don’t stop the renovation process, it will be messy, but just wait, we will be restored, and we will be a new creation.
