TRANSFORMATION IS NOT A FUTURE EVENT-IT IS PRESENT FOCUSED
Transformation begins in your thoughts, and because your thoughts are connected to your emotions, when you change the “way” you think, you change the “way” you respond. In order to change an existing mindset, you must replace it with another mindset.
"Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed. – Prov. 15:22
NO PLAN IS A PLAN – IT'S A PLAN TO FAIL.
This is why you must implement the plans and strategies formed that you and I determine is best for you.
All transformation requires you to put your life in order. God is a God of order. He works through developmental sequence in each of our lives to bring us to transformation. This process is different for each of us as we are all in different phases of growth and development. As you agree with each step of this order, transformation is birthed.
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
You can’t talk about transformation without talking about changing the way you think. Change your thoughts about the past or present and you will change your future. It has been said that your life will go in the direction of your most dominant thoughts. I believe this to be true. When people recieve Jesus as Lord they make an important decision-but not their last one. Every decision after this one, isn't automatically the right one. Now they need to discern with God in making decisions; and if their thoughts are not carefully recognized or discerned as true or false, they will end up shipwrecked in their faith. We need help understanding wrong mindsets and unhealthy emotional patterns, in order to see true transformation.
Identifying wrong mindsets, generational iniquities, strongholds and bloodline issues or reoccurring cycles in our lives is paramount to walking in peace, forgiveness and restoration. You can’t out run a cycle or ignore it. You can’t outrun an iniquity or ignore it, you must confront it; cycles must be interrupted and broken, so new life cycles can begin.
Together we will identify those cycles, soul issues, wounds and gaps, and cross those bridges meanwhile confronting all hidden areas in prayer And let me just say this, everyone needs deliverance from darkness. You don’t have to be ashamed that you have bloodline rebellion or sin-everyone one of us were born into sin. God not only wants to set you free from sin but from sins effects that plague you and your family-line.
Deliverance doesn't have to be scary or difficult because Jesus is gentle and loving and his Spirit is peaceful and comforting.
When you encounter the true essence of God it will indeed bless you, but also transform and humble you.
The bible says-"Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." Romans 12:1-2 NIV
I have watched men and women of the faith encounter the glory of God and yet return to the patterns and customs of this world. Make no mistake about it, following Jesus requires you denying yourself, picking up your cross and following him, and that does not look the patterns or customs of this world. True transformation requires you aligning with the truth of God's Word and the glory you encounter, and living it out in your bodies as well as your soul. We must remember we are not just spirit, we are also soul and body which is a complete representation of the trinity of Father, Son, and Spirit.
"The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14
