"Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed. – Prov. 15:22
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.
Because – NO PLAN is a PLAN – it’s just a PLAN TO FAIL.
This is why you must implement the plans and strategies formed in Pathways to Peace with clear focal points.
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 deliverance and inner-healing, sacrifice and glory. Healing and deliverance is experienced first in your soul and then many times in your body as well.Many people experience salvation in their spirit but do not receive the soul deliverance and healing that needs to take place next in that order to see and experience true transformation and freedom leading to peace. 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 soul issues, wounds and gaps, and cross those bridges meanwhile confronting all areas of darkness. 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.
It’s not always difficult to receive deliverance but it can be hard to stay delivered if you don’t how.
Lastly, transformation is best experienced when encountering the true life source of God-which is His glory. As the people of God we are to be the carriers of his glory and be the transformers to those who are broken, sick and oppressed by hell.
When you encounter the glory of God it will indeed transform you and set you on a new trajectory in life IF you agree with the process of transformation.
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
