Many people talk about changing the world. Few actually do.
Every person ever born has had the ability and the opportunity to change the world. Few actually do.
Every person? Absolutely! Helen Keller, Frederick Douglas, Walt Disney, Franklin Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, etc.
A tax collector, a tentmaker and a bunch of fishermen are household names today because they impacted the world! But a rich, powerful young man is forever nameless. (Matthew 19:21-22)
You have to decide what YOU believe about Jesus
Who He is
You have to decide if you believe in a good guy or the Son of God.
His name – Acts 3:6, Philippians 2:9-11
His blood – there is Peace, Redemption, Forgiveness, Being made right with God, Cleansing of our thoughts, Healing, Connection with to God
When we speak His Word we aren’t just talking but speaking THE Word of life!
Pray the promises, speak His Word into situations, against adversities. Matthew 21:18-22, Lamentations 3:37, Psalm 33:6-9, Hebrews 11:3, Luke 7:6-10, Mark 4:39, Luke 4:38-39, Genesis 1:3-24, Mark 9:25-26
You have to decide if you believe in His purpose. Isaiah 61:1-3
Jesus was given authority for us! And He gives it to us! Ephesians 1:19-22, Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 16:15-18, Acts 1:8
Jesus didn’t intend that we simply see people in need but that we see to it their world is changed!
Jesus is not hoping or suggesting, He is declaring you and I will accomplish His purpose through His authority!
Finally, You have to decide if you are comfortable with life as it is,
your circumstances, your career and finances, your family issues, the pain in this world, the troubles your classmates and coworkers have to deal with, etc.
But what can I do? Test Jesus! Read through the devotional below this week and prepare yourself to pray the prayer that reveals the power of God, speak Words of life into the world around you and find purpose in serving Jesus!
