Devotion - The Process of Transformation

In June, our church learned to focus on hearing & obeying the voice of God. As we spend time with Jesus and in His word, we WILL BE TRANSFORMED. New pathways of thought will form. We will learn that it's not possible to be "too heavenly minded". If we follow Jesus, He is the one who takes care of the hard work of transformation.

The change in us, the process is what people will be astonished by, knowing that we didn't do it alone. It's our chance to give Him all the glory and praise!

Scripture - Psalm 84:7 TPT

They grow stronger and stronger with every step forward

until they find all their strength in you, and the God of all gods will appear before them in Zion.

Devotion - Transformed

Every moment with you is a like a moment of truth. Each time I turn my heart to you, ponder your Word, or think about your holiness, I am changed. With each choice I make to walk in righteousness, I grow stronger. As I behold your face, I am transformed—taking steps that take me from glory to glory.

Regardless of what comes against me, you find a way to use it for my good. Even my light afflictions will result in eternal glory. Your power has no limits. It can be seen in the smallest atom or heard in the fiercest wind. I’m humbled by your greatness. Without you, I am nothing. With you, I live a life of continual triumph.

I resign myself to do your will. By your grace, I will never stop pursuing you. Your presence is the secret to everlasting strength.
