When most people ask God, into their heart they expect instant gratification by experiencing a quick spiritual change by most of the change coming from God, without themselves stepping up to the plate to help the change process proceed along… I have been down that road with God, most of my life and I would fall away from having a relationship with God, if I notice change wasn’t happening right away or when God, would point out a change that needs to be completed and I didn’t like the change because that would mean I would have to give up something I liked or that was fun to me… But I never took the time to notice just because I liked something or thought it was fun or that it may not be a healthy life style or even beneficial in the long run…
See God, doesn’t want us to waste our time on idol things and by our sinful nature it seems to come easy to do just that without much thought and that is why we need God, to point out the indifference that our sinful blinders, blind us from so we don’t fall into the trap of Deferred Gratification. If we decide to rely on our own understanding and strength to remove the sinful blinders on a daily basis we would fail because we need Gods’ intervention to point out the sin we may not see in the same aspect as God’ sees the sin…
From a first hand perspective some parts of the anew Christian life style means that some of your old life style habits have to come to a halt right away so the change process can begin within. But it can become harder for some while others can give up those habits and their sinful thought pattern without much failure… Either way God, is there beside you encouraging your spiritual change as well He’s, also there to encourage you when you make a mistake or even stumble upon a road block for you to get back up and brush off the knees and press forward…
I use to say to myself why do I need to pray or even go through the spiritual change when God, already knows the outcome of my words and actions… For many years I was blind to the fact it’s not for Gods, gratification of watching us fail at times. But instead a sign of respect towards God, and a learning process for ourselves since we don’t know the outcome of the situations we face daily…
After asking God, into my heart I discovered allot about myself and various strengths and ability’s I didn’t know I was able to put into daily practice while I sought out this new life style. God, truly wants the best for us and it can only be achieved when we’re willing enough to put aside or own desires and commit to God’s way of life 100% This is harder than said most times because as anew Christians learning new things upon our walk with God, isn’t easy because our flesh creeps up and try’s to rebel against the change… That is why one of the first things as anew christian is we need to recognize our weakness so we can see the warning signs so when the flesh does creep up we can slay the flesh and focus on the changing process God wants us to endure….
Change is never easy but again God, never claimed it would be a walk in the park either if God, didn’t challenge us we would become stuck within the change process of never moving forward.
Lord, I come before you to ask that the Holy Spirit, will burn through out me burning up the poison that satan has set before me… Lord, I also ask that you will give me daily grace as I struggle to surrender out of fear of rejection. I also ask that you will show me how to allow the Holy Spirit, to burn within me with radiance onto others where ever you place me Amen.
