We are going to continue one more day on the path we have been on this week. As I studied for yesterday’s teaching, God showed me something in His word that I want to share with you.
Yesterday, I spoke of wholeness. Many of you may not be feeling whole today and if that is you, there is a way to be made whole, we find it in Matthew 9:22, let’s take a look at that scripture.
Matthew 9:22: ‘But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.’
Most of us are familiar with the woman with the issue of blood. She was miraculously cured for a disease that tormented her for years. When Jesus spoke with her, He didn’t say ‘go your way I have healed you.’ No, He said ‘YOUR FAITH has made you whole.’
You see, her faith, her trust in God, her belief that God would do what He said He would do made her whole…her faith.
Therefore I see from scripture that my faith in God will also make me whole, those areas in my life that need wholeness, if I cultivate my faith in God daily, I too will find wholeness, as will you.
However, that transformation must begin in our mind. As one of our partners shared with me yesterday; the brain is neuro plastic and made to be renewed and changed, but it is work. If you wired a thought in you can wire a thought out.
In other words these toxic thoughts that are tormenting us were frankly wired in by us and only we can wire them out – but the good news is that we can do that through the word of God.
Romans 12:2 says; ‘And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.’
The word ‘transform’ means a complete change for the better, isn’t that what we all want? A complete change for the better? I know I do.
Renew means; to cause to grow up, new, to make new, new strength and vigor is given to one, to be changed into a new kind of life as opposed to the former corrupt state. I love that definition. I am ready to be changed to a brand new life! How about you?
You see, just as our partner shared with me, it will be work to rewire your way of thinking but it can be done and God will empower you to do it, if you will do the work. The work is renewing your mind with the word of God daily. Find scripture that strengthen you and scriptures that tear down those old thought processes – remind yourself who you are in God and who He is in you. Have faith in God. Regardless of what has happened in the past – don’t allow yourself to dwell in past disappointments another minute – have faith in God that He will do what you need Him to do. Stop being disappointed in Him. He did not fail you. He can’t – it goes against His word – I don’t know happened in your situation, but it is just like He showed me earlier this week – trying to understand it or make sense of it will not produce a good fruit – let it go and move on.
Friends, God is indeed calling us up higher, will we go? I know I am and I hope you are too. Let’s purpose in our hearts today to do the work, renew our mind, rewire our way of thinking and ascend in God….AMEN!
