Change your thoughts and you can change your world.
Does that sound like just more 21st century, motivational mumbo-jumbo to you? Here’s what God’s Word has to say about it:
The Lord didn’t come to give you an unfulfilled, average life; He came to give you a full and enjoyable life. Bring your thinking into agreement with His Word and things will begin to change.
10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows]. 11 I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down His [own] life for the sheep.John 10:10-11 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Start seeing Him as your good shepherd who died to give you His abundant life, and you’ll start living in His glorious future for you.
This month can represent a new blank page in your life. You have been given a new month, a new year, a new decade. If you are willing to step away from the old anxiety and doubt, and believe in the overflowing love God offers, everything can change.
Jesus Speaks of Personal Freedom
31-32 So Jesus said to the Jews who believed in him, “If you are faithful to what I have said, you are truly my disciples. And you will know the truth and the truth will set you free!”John 8:31-32
What if I told you……
that if you are born again you have changed kingdoms?
that you are just as righteous as Jesus?
that your spirit is a new creation?
that you are seated with Him in heavenly places?
that you are filled with His Spirit?
that you are adopted into His family?
that His love was poured into your heart?
that you are called to reign in life?
that God wants to give you abundant life?
that He has given you every promise in order to escape the corruption of the world?
that you have the God kind of faith inside of you?
that you can hear God?
that you can see the unseen?
that you can pray believing and receive in His Name?
that you can submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee?
that as He is, so are you in this world?
that you have the keys to His Kingdom?
that He will freely give you all things?
that the gifts of His Spirit are for you to help others?
that healing is your covenant right?
that Job isn’t your example, Jesus is?
If you are born again and I told you all of this, it would simply be basic Christianity. It is the message of freedom from guilt and condemnation. It is the message of victory, joy, peace with God and love. It is a message that knows God is not schizophrenic, moody, mysterious or cruel. It is a message of the Father’s love for mankind and His provision for every need. It is the simple gospel.
I encourage you, accept the blank page God has offered you today, believe His simple gospel and see its message change your life.
