TRANSFORMERS // OCTOBER 16, 2020
My God sent his angel, and he shut the mouths of the lions. They have not hurt me, because I was found innocent in his sight. Nor have I ever done any wrong before you, your Majesty.
In the midst of what appeared to be certain death, Daniel chose to trust God. He was not disappointed. God sent an angel who shut the mouths of the lions! Daniel spent the night in the den and emerged in the morning unharmed!
How do you give a natural explanation to a supernatural experience? Many don't want to believe the supernatural side of scripture because if they believed it they would have to live differently. It is far easier to conform and be like the world. But that is not the way of Jesus and as a Jesus centered church, that is not the way of FAITH. We are called to be different — we are called to be transformers.
What does it look like for you to be a transformer — to step into your "different destiny"? A foundational step in this journey is having your mind renewed. Meditating on scripture provides the environment for that renewal to take place. Read Romans 12:2. Confess any area of your life where you have been conforming to the world and then invite the Holy Spirit to bring transformation.
Romans 12:2 (NIV)
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
