How to change things

Unfortunately, the traditional church with its sanitized message and dead liturgy has, through the centuries, taught us to consistently beg God to do things.

This self-styled church with a man-devised theology developed a belief system that was totally contrary to the Word of God.  God was seen as a Reluctant Sovereign, Who was not really very interested in us and Who based what He did solely on just how much we begged Him and how faithful we were in our religious performance and in keeping the Ten Commandments.   If we begged Him enough, there was a slight chance that He just might grant our request.  But we had to be sure we were cleaned up, prayed up and often “worked” up.

The ability to get “things changed” or get our “prayers answered” depended on how many rules we kept, how much time we spent in prayer, how many chapters we read in the Bible, how often we attended church, whether we paid our tithes and how many people we led to the Lord.   It was based on our “performance.”

All these things are good, but they have absolutely NOTHING to do with Changing Things that need Changing.   We are to initiate Change by and through the Power that is actively working in us.

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Eph 3:20

God has given every Believer the Power to Change things.

 

You can do it

Jesus changed things.

He came from heaven and into this world for the express purpose of changing things.  He took the bad and made it good.  He took the weak and made it strong.  He took the dead and brought them to life.

Jesus went about changing things.  He always made them better.  He made it possible for you and me to change things.  He gives us power to alter situations and change circumstances and make things better.

It’s the devil who makes things bad.  demons make life miserable.  However, YOU can change your situation, your circumstances, your bad things into good things.

Maybe today you are living in situations that need to be changed.  You want them changed and you feel trapped because you “think” you can do nothing about it.   Some have been convinced by the devil that they can do nothing about certain situations… “They are hopeless…” They are “impossible”…”You’ll never overcome this…”  “You might as well quit because you can’t win…” these are insinuations the devil makes when you find yourself in a fix.

Others would confess “I can’t help it” or “there is nothing I can do about it…” or “it is out of my hands…”  It is imperative that you know God has given every Believer Authority and Power to change situations and circumstances.

Jesus said: Ye shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free John 8:32

This means that the Truth you know and act on shall deliver you (give you the power) to change things.

If you don’t like what’s happening…. change it

What is the Will of God?

What is His Plan?  What has He purposed for me?

Jesus prayed for the will of God to be done on earth as it (the will of God) is being done in heaven.  The will of God is the same thing that a last will and testament is here on earth.

The Will is what God has provided for His Children.  It is what He has left for His heirs.  The Will of God is the Word of God… the composite of Truth that provides revelation and knowledge to those who belong to Him.

The level of “all things possible” living must come from a revelation of His Will… which is His Word.  What it is.  What is says.  What it promises.  How it works.  Why it works.

Understanding the Will of God opens the door for one to Believe God and to Believe Him for what He has promised in His Word.

I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.   Jer 29:11 (The Message)

God has plans for you.  Big plans.  Exciting plans.

He plans to give you the future you hope for.

 

This is The Will

What do you want?

In order to overcome the strength of sin that fights against us, the human will must come into play.   If you overcome the flesh, you must want to overcome the fleshYou will never get free or be free unless you want to be free.

God will not work against the human will.  What you will and what you want, God will respect.  He will not intervene or force Himself into your life and your plans.  If you want out, God will get you out.  If you want to stay under the control of your flesh and continue to suffer the consequences… God will not stop you.

Your deliverance is up to YOU.  Not me.    Or anybody else…. Your deliverance is dependent on you.

If you are Born Again, the Bible says that the Greater One (Jesus) is in you.

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.  1 John 4:4

Paul writes that God is able….

 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Ephesians 3:20

John writes that:

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.  1 John 5:4

Paul admonishes:

Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.  Romans 6:12

Since the Bible says we can overcome if we are believers, then we must determine whether or not we are believers.  The Born Again Ones.  The Redeemed.  Those who have been “quickened” from the dead.  The ones who have openly and without shame declared that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, Who come down from heaven, was born of a virgin, and provided the Atoning Sacrifice for our sins as He died on the Cross…. The Risen Savior and Lord and the Only Remedy for Man’s sin.

Are you among the Company of the Redeemed?

Are you one of the Unashamed Ones?

Have you been Born Again?

If your answer is YES, then Deliverance is yours today.

IF you want it

Every Believer has God’s Power.

They may not act like it, look like it or talk like it… but they do.   According to God’s Word… His power is in every Believer.

One reason many do not function in this power is because they do not know where it is.  If they do not know where it is they cannot function in it.   If they cannot function in it they cannot use it.  If they cannot use it they will be buffeted and whipped by the devil.  And the things that need changing will not be changed.

God’s Power is not exclusively in Heaven.

All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth… is what Jesus said in Matt 28:18.

Now, where does He dwell?  Christ in YOU the hope of Glory!   Col 1:27

We have been taught that we are to pray for God’s Power to FALL on us.  For God to “send the Power…”  For the “Fire of God” to fall and come down from heaven.  We were led to believe that we could do nothing unless the Power “fell” on us.

For years I prayed for a Revival to come from Heaven.  Our whole concept of God’s Power has been warped and steeped in error.  No wonder we can’t operate in God’s Power… we don’t even know what it is, where it is, how to get it or how to release it.

Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the (wonder-working, miraculous) power that worketh in us…  Eph 3:20

God’s Power does not “come down” or “fall on us”…. God’s Power emanates from our RE-Born human spirit that is Born Again in the Image of God and His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.  God’s power is IN US.  It is not in heaven and it is not floating in space or gathering in the skies to fall on us when we “pray through…”

Arise, shine, for thy light is come and the Glory of the Lord is RISEN UPON THEE… Isa 60:1

Is He supposed to rise up out of the ground?  Of course not.   Then what is He supposed to “arise” out of?

He is to rise out of the Re-created, Re-born human spirit… and when He does His enemies (and yours, too) will be scattered.

 

Let God arise and His enemies be scattered…  Psa 68:1

But ye shall receive Power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you…  Acts 1:8

God wants you to have power in your life.  He has fixed it so that you can have power in your life.  He wants you to take His place and Function in His place on this earth every day of your life.  You know that you need God’s Power in your life.  There are some things you want to do and you cannot do them unless GOD’S POWER is operating in your LIFE.  You need:

  • POWER over sin
  • POWER over being timid
  • POWER over being sick
  • POWER over wrong attitudes
  • POWER over the desires of the flesh and mind
  • POWER over the curse of poverty
  • POWER over your thought life
  • POWER over fear and anxiety
  • POWER over your hurt feelings and bruised spirit
  • POWER over depression and worry.
  • POWER over the devil and demons.

You know where you need power and why you need power.  You know what God’s Power will do for you and in you.  You know that you can do nothing without His POWER.  You need His Power and you want His Power to work in you and for you.

You are tired of waiting and procrastinating… you have tried other things and they have all failed.  You have read books and you have listened to tapes and you have prayed and you have gone to church… but you have never received the full measure of God’s Power in your life.

It’s yours for the asking.

And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.  Mt 21:22

For the promise (of God’s Power) is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.  Acts 2:39

 

It’s for you today
