Frustration comes from the humanness in me when folks say they need God’s power in their lives yet refuse to buckle to His will. They insist that they know God, yet don’t get the log from their eye.
They want something for nothing, never respecting the law of God written in all panels of lifetime, even to the incontrovertible evidence in this life.
If you would like to be forgiven, you have to repent by turning your life back to God, and show by your behavior, your attitude has changed. It’s very straightforward and remarkably effective.
Your relationships do not change as you don’t change.
You do not change only for a single fact: you have to submit your life to God.
He shows you the reality. He provides you with the gumption to stand there, judged. He helps you understand that the truth does not condemn you, it frees you. He impels one to do what you can in the light of the reality. He shows you how you’ve offended everyone, and He places in you a heart to live at peace with all humanity.
Nobody who has not undergone such Revival is saved.
Who stands there, saved of God, and does not about-face?
Conviction isn’t self-righteousness, a will contrary to the Holy God, but it’s self-admonishment, always, and then continuing self-denial, hearing aright how God can help you put matters right this side of eternity.
This is the most persuasive fact that side of death; now is the time; today is the opportunity. Especially for people who call themselves stored… don’t be in that class of’Christian’ whom the Lord says,’they’ll say to me, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name and cast out demons, but I say I never knew you; be gone out of My Presence.’ Can the prophet be saved with no living an adroitly penitent life?
The rub of life is at the friction of relationships.
What power of God is there if others can’t understand the power of God which has changed you?
Yes, indeed, there are lots of false doctrines and several comfy cushions that seem like the flame of God, but it is all useless unless the Christian gets on their knees and begs for forgiveness because they have seen the testimony of darkness written in their heart – to the extent of the relationships they have that don’t please the Lord.
The revival of salvation and recovery come from the power of God through insistent repentance.
