As we will see from the diagram to the right there is a good reason why we often lack the desire or motivation to change. We get beat up so badly by the circumstances of life and all that the enemy tries to throw on us that we really wonder if this whole Christian experience is really worth the struggle that often ensues.
Or it may be that we really do have the motivation to change, but we have no idea of how to go about it. We have habit patterns that are so ingrained into us that we don’t know how to overcome them.
Thankfully there is an answer as we will see as we progress in this lesson. God has plan for each of us to be overcomers in all that we do, which includes going from glory to glory experiencing the changes that He desires in our lives.
Motivational Keys that are Needed to Help Initiate Change.
1. Our Desire to Change Is Something That Pleases the Lord.
2. Change Brings Forth a Greater Measure of Our Spiritual Inheritance.
Since change is an act of obedience, we reap blessing upon blessing when we respond to God in obedience.
Listed below are just a few of the by products of our inheritance that we receive through our obedience to submit to the changing process in our lives.
Joy vs. Grief - Peace vs. Trouble - Hope vs. Fear - Happiness vs. Misery - Love vs. Hatred - Plenty vs. Poverty - Health vs. Sickness - Forgiveness vs. Resentment.
This is a major portion of the Promised Land that God has given to us as New Testament Christians. These promises should motivate us to bring forth the kind of fruit God desires in our lives. Let us be like Abraham who did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief.
