That's Just the Way I Am


"Will You not revive us again, That Your people may rejoice in You?" (Ps. 85:6, NKJV)

"That's just the way I am."

The belief behind these words has done as much as any other to keep Christians stuck in mediocrity, blocking what God wants to do in our lives and in the church body.

It seems we cling to labels and boundaries, trying to make sense of the world while unknowingly hindering personal growth and supernatural opportunities.

Are you ready to challenge your way of thinking and doing and step out of your comfort zone? Will you refuse to expect the Almighty God to transform Himself and His Word to make things easier on you? Do that and you will open yourself up to the workings of a God who will reveal Himself through an interruption of the natural order of things—miracles.

The question for you is—Will you position your faith to be a part of what the Almighty is doing? You can choose to stand on God's power or be stifled by man's principles and your preferences.

This is spirit revolution. You are going to see the "impossible" and "unexplainable" happen through you. You can change lives and inspire those who lack faith but it must start with your own thinking and willingness to let God out of the box.

Are you ready to open yourself up to whatever, however, whenever, through whomever God chooses?
