For every upgrade God has for us in our identity, calling and destiny there is a process of relational training that prepares us to thrive at a new level. But often, we become stuck in this process because we interpret our challenges as enemy opposition.
Although this can be a part of it, many times it’s our mind about our training that gets us stuck.
In this episode, we’ll be discussing:
+ The #1 REASON we don’t SEE the glory of transformation in our lives…
+ Why we never want to START anything from DISCIPLINE...
+ How you can ENCOUNTER the delight & joyful passion of being TRANSFORMED…
+ What to do with the AREAS that you have tried to grown by sheer DISCIPLINE…
This devotional comes from page 66 and 67 of letter #7 in The Nature of Freedom (2017 edition.)
+ Where have you tried to grow or overcome in life through sheer discipline and now you feel stuck?
+ Has discouragement or self-condemnation gotten ahold of your heart in that place?
+ Are you realizing that you’ve picked up a heavy yoke of discipline when God is offering an easy yoke of walking with Him in delight?
+ 2 Corinthians 3:18: But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.
+ Philippians 2:13: For it is GOD who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.
