Are there areas in your life where you want change? Are there moments in your past that you thought could have been avoided if you made some serious changes? Are there areas in your life you want to grow for the better but not sure how? Do you have plans and dreams for your future that you feel will happen once you really transform?
Transformation happens when there is a genuine encounter with God. Did you know that you can have multiple encounters with God? As you grow in your faith, there are new levels to reach in God. God is the one who brings about the transformation. When you trust and rely on him to be your guide and life source, He will transform everything about you.
Transformation- a thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance.
His grace and power enables the transformation in our lives. What we cannot do in our own power, His love and power is able to change. The more we embrace God, our father, the more we will begin to transform.
II Corinthians 5:17: Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away. Behold, the new has come!
This year it is important that we are intentional about getting closer to God, so nothing hinders, discourages, or stops us from moving into the new territory that God has for us. Through Christ, we are able to walk in complete freedom, but it is up to us to go after him to receive what he has for us!
It is time for more worship in prayer as we move forward in 2018. The more we are in the presence of God will be how we see the change taking place in our lives. The habits, attitude, fear, and whatever else will fall off, and we will be able to live how God has intended for us to live: full of power, peace, joy, and strength.
