Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven (Matt.18:3).
Remember I ended up last week’s message that you and I have the ability within us to open the floodgates of heaven for a blessing to be poured out into our lives. I am sure you must have been dwelling with a lingering question over the weekend as to how to get to this place that I was mentioning about.
The greatest hindrance to creating this level of atmosphere is our preconceived thoughts and ideas that we have build within our lives about our understanding of whom God is and our limitations of Him.
You need to empty yourself of all that you have built around your life that has limited you from walking into God’s supernatural works in your life. All that you have preconceived in your human intellect and mindset. In other words you need to change your limited mindset to God’s unlimited supernatural mindset. You know what? Human reasoning and logic will always hinder you when it comes to receiving a miracle from God. That’s the reason why many people do not receive their breakthrough and healing. They miss out on all what God wants to do in their life.
Jesus said unless you come to Him with a mind of an innocent little child. And He said:
“Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” ( Matt.18:3).
When you trust and believe God totally and absolutely, you transform the atmosphere for a breakthrough. If you can tell God seriously, “I am facing this impossible crisis in my life, the doctors are saying there is no hope for me but I am trusting you Lord, no matter how impossible it may appear that you are a God of miracles and that there is nothing too hard for you”, God’s supernatural regenerating work and miracle is always done through human agency.
For example Healing:
EMOTIONAL & INNER HEALING:
He heals the broken hearted and binds up your wounds (Psalms 147:3). A lot of people including believing Christians have never settled this issue of their past hurts and they walk around carrying this baggage with them. They live in this brokenness and think that this is their lifestyle God has given them. They believe that they are fated to live like that. You see, you have a choice, you can let this brokenness govern and destroy you or you can give it to God and come out of it. At the end of the day, the choice is yours.
Jesus paid an awful price on the cross to heal and deliver you. You don’t have to struggle helplessly and hopelessly in this place. Come to Jesus who is able to set you free. We are not denying that you are an unfortunate victim of some unjust thing that has happened to you in the past.
We are all a product of the past, nobody is denying that but remember, we are not a prisoner of the past!! You may be molested in the past that doesn’t conclude that you a homosexual or a gay and that it’s not a foregone conclusion that you need to seek an alternative lifestyle! (Romans 1:23-29).
That’s an absolute lie of the devil! A lot of us are messed up today and end up doing crazy things to our life because we believe in the lie of the devil and the opinions of man instead of believing in what the word of God says about you! And thus we become dysfunctional when we exchange the natural for the unnatural.
THE POWER OF CHOICE LIES WITHIN YOU
Similarly, there are people who are scarred and wounded just because a negative word has been spoken into their life by someone in the past that has unfortunately wounded them. A lot of them go around living their lives without settling this issue. Therefore what happens is that you carry the hurts and pain in your “hurt pocket” and apparently nobody has taken the pain to minister to you seriously to empty this thing that’s been hurting you and therefore you are unable to release it out.
As a result the enemy has taken advantage and locked you in and crippled you from moving forward. Are you aware that “hurt people hurt people”? You go around hurting everybody else. You become problematic to everybody around you. And you wonder why this is happening to you. Can you see your problem there?
He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds (Psalm 147:3). God wants to deliver you. God wants to heal you. But you have got to first recognize your problem and at the same time humble yourself to seek the divine intervention of God acknowledging that only He can help you to get you out of it and then let it go and give it to him.
“He will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning,” (Isaiah 61:3)
Here is what you need to be clear about: other people can hurt you! Other people can scar you! But they can never ruin your future because you have the power of choice within you to allow that to happen to you. When you make that choice God will step in and help you out.
