Change Comes When We Decide we’re Powerless
The great experience about living in New England or the Northeast is the changing of the seasons. Just when we get tired of winter or summer, spring and fall seem to bring relief from both extremes of the heat and freezing temperatures. If we want change in our surroundings and circumstances, then its going to take a lot of effort and self disciple. When we realize, that we need to change that’s the beginning of victory in our lives. “Greater is He (Christ) that is in us than He that is in the world”. 1 John 4:4.
Many things I could not change on my own even with the utmost of willpower and determination. When I surrendered my life to Christ and He was Lord of my life; thoughts, things, behavior, struggles, and lifestyle choices began to change from the inside out.
This is the key God is always doing an inside work as we allow the Spirit of God to convict us, counsel us, comfort us in ways we never thought possible. Is it a battle? Yes. Is it achievable? Yes. The Holy Spirit is the believers Advocate-Helper.
“But I will send you the Advocate —the Spirit of truth. He will come to you from the Father and will testify all about me.
John 15:26 NLT
But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.
John 14:26 NLT
“In the same way the Spirit [comes to us and] helps us in our weakness. We do not know what prayer to offer or how to offer it as we should, but the Spirit Himself [knows our need and at the right time] intercedes on our behalf with sighs and groanings too deep for words”.
Romans 8:26 AMP
God’s grace is sufficient for all who will let Him . It’s a constant journey like a marathon and not a sprint! You can overcome when you let go and let the Lord lead you in your battles.
My friend you are not alone in your and struggles and battles. There is power in prayer when we surrender to God and allow the Spirit to fight for us.
Have a victorious week
