No wonder many avoid and are fearful of change.
But for disciples of Christ change is inevitable and desirable. Whenever they turn to face God as Moses did. God removes the veil, and there they are— face-to-face!
They suddenly recognize that God is a living, personal presence, not a piece of chiseled stone. And when God is personally present, a living Spirit. That old, constricting legislation is recognized as obsolete. We’re free of it! All of us! Nothing between us and God, our faces shining with the brightness of His face.
And so we are transfigured much like the Messiah. Our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful as God enters our lives, and we become like Him. 2 Corinthians 3:16-18
Even if your circumstances are screaming Papa is nowhere to be found. You must be satisfied with your present circumstances and with what you have. For He, God Himself has said, “I will not in any way fail you. Nor give you up. Nor leave you without support. I will not. I will not. I will not in any degree leave you helpless. Nor forsake. Nor let you down. Relax My hold on you! Assuredly not!” Hebrews 13:5
Do not allow your flesh to sabotage your faith. It is your faith in Christ that…
Arms you with the offensive and defensive weapons necessary to destroy the lies of the devil.
Visualizes a future of hope.
Rests in Papa’s goodness and faithfulness.
Gives Papa permission to order your steps.
Allows Papa to fight the battles for you.
Knows the victory is yours because of your relationship with Jesus.
All that He does is splendid and majestic. His righteousness endures forever. The Lord is gracious and compassionate. He has provided food for those who fear Him. He remembers His covenant forever. He has shown His people the power of His works by giving them the inheritance of the nations. The works of His hands are truth and justice. All His instructions are trustworthy. They are established forever and ever. Enacted in truth and uprightness. He has sent redemption to His people. He has ordained His covenant forever. His name is holy and awe-inspiring.
