What are you going to do to be a catalyst for positive change? What will you do to be a transforming power? What impact are you going to make on the world around you? What legacy will you leave for other to remember and cling onto? What will they learn from you that will make a true difference and have transforming power?
Let’s consider 2 Corinthians 5:17 which says…
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
Not a small change but a big change, a real change, the power of transformation!
Will you allow the Holy Spirit to lead you and guide you? If you haven’t experience the baptism of the Holy Spirit, will you ask for it, will you receive it, will you live with the wisdom, the discernment, and the comfort of having the Holy Spirit with you?
Will you choose to receive the forgiveness that breaks down all barriers and lifts off all burdens to make you feel free?
Don’t lose hope for there is nobody that is beyond God’s influence. Now some may take more encouragement and experience of doing life without God for them to realize how much they need God, but that is another story associated with us all having free will.
You feeling distant or looking for hope? Feeling life is in a downward spiral? Ever read the book by Unreachable by Darrell Tunningley? Do realize that Jesus is the answer and the key? He paid the price so that we can be reconciled and forgiven! He wants us to have lives with hope and a future!
Turn from the devil and his plans, turn to Jesus because He came on purpose and with purpose…
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
–from John 10:10
REMEMBER GOD’S PLAN:
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
–from Jeremiah 29:11
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
–from John 3:17
What if the big change or transformation that you need to make is in yourself?
Will you share your story that others may be encouraged? This blog allows me to share some of my stories. My workplace allowed me to tell one of them and to post it up on YouTube. Don’t keep quiet or else the rocks will cry out!
