V Is for Victory

By on Apr 26, 2017 in Noah's Archives | 0 comments

No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. Romans 8:37   Have you ever seen a sports event in which one team eeked out a narrow win? Other times a team may have a decisive win by a large margin. Sports teams would say, “A win is a win.” But that’s not how God works. When we work out things on our own, we might eek out a narrow win, if we don’t outright fail on our own strength. But when we play on God’s team, following His lead, He brings about overwhelming victory. God doesn’t eek out a win. He has a decisive victory. How does this change us from the inside out? Victory is ours through Christ. As we focus on Him, Christ brings about remarkable changes in our lives. Change might be gradual, but it will be remarkable.     Get This Series as a Free PDF   Transformed by God: An A to Z Guide to Experiencing Change from the Inside Out I know...

U Is for Unlimited Resources

By on Apr 25, 2017 in Noah's Archives | 0 comments

I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Ephesians 3:16   As you might expect, the Creator of the Universe has unlimited resources. And just as His resurrection power is at work in our lives, His glorious resources are available for us, too. We don’t have to figure things out and come up with the tools and resources to do everything on our own. Instead, we can rely on God’s resources. God wants to use His unlimited resources to empower us with inner strength. And, of course, this inner strength is found through His Spirit within us. Let God change you from the inside out by first relying on His resources at work within you. Then, His external resources will follow as needed.     Get This Series as a Free PDF   Transformed by God: An A to Z Guide to Experiencing Change from the Inside Out I know it’s not always...

T Is for Transformed

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. Romans 12:2   We can let our minds be controlled by the Spirit or our old sinful nature, but we can also let our minds be influenced by the behavior and customs of this world. Our culture attempts to influence our thinking on various points, even going so far as to label us if we don’t conform to the worldly ways of thinking. Once again, God is ready to change us from the inside out. We can choose to let God transform us into a new person by changing the way we think. We cannot transform ourselves. Transformation is a work of God. He changes us from the inside out by doing spiritual work to change our hearts and minds to conform to Christ.     Get This Series as a Free PDF  ...

S Is for Spirit-Controlled Mind

So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. Romans 8:6   Whether you realize it or not, you’re involved in mind-control games. That sounds like something out of a psychological thriller, but the fact is you have a choice about who controls your mind. You can let your sinful nature control your mind. However, you’ll recall that you sinful nature was crucified with Christ (Galatians 2:20). Your old self is dead. But sometimes it can still be a default setting until we master the control issue. Of course, the better choice is to let the Spirit control your mind. When we do, our thoughts and choices become more Christ-like. A spirit-controlled mind leads to life and peace. That’s what I want. How about you?     Get This Series as a Free PDF   Transformed by God: An A to Z Guide to Experiencing Change from...

R Is for Renewal

That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. 2 Corinthians 4:16   I hate to be a party-pooper, but you started dying the day you were born. At least your physical body became susceptible to disease, decay, and deterioration. While your physical body is dying, your spirit is being renewed every day. We are eternal beings—spiritual beings. Our bodies are only temporary. God renews our spirits each day, giving us a fresh infusion of His life to sustain us. God gives us the breath of life—His Spirit—to renew our spirits. Are you feeling spiritually barren? Give God permission to do spiritual work in your life to bring about renewal to your spirit. Keep seeking God and you’ll begin to feel the refreshing wind of change in your spirit.     Get This Series as a Free PDF   Transformed by God: An A to Z Guide to Experiencing Change from the...
