What is that “thing” in your life that is holding you back today? We all have something. As we work towards becoming more like Christ, He will reveal to us areas that we must surrender to Him. That ugly parts inside of us that need to be brought to the light so the Father can redeem us and make us whole.
My husband and I had dinner with a couple last weekend. As I was listening to the man give his testimony, he shared with us that God supernaturally took away from him the desire to smoke, drink and cuss when he gave his life to the Lord while he was in prison. That greatly inspired me!
I believe that God wants to meet us and our ugly parts at the cross. He wants to give us a radical encounter with Himself that only causes us to walk away changed…
Redeemed. Set Free. Whole.
As we allow Him to take those broken places inside of us, He fills them up with Himself.
Imagine what your life would look like if you no longer held onto the ugly parts. You would be an unstoppable force and they enemy knows it. That’s why he works overtime on reminding you of your faults. Satan wants you to keep trying to “fix you” in your own strength because he knows that you can’t.
Ask God today to give you a supernatural encounter with Himself and then partner with Him once He does.
“Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.” Acts 5:38-39
