Wow! This morning my thoughts center around spiritual transformation. And there can be no spiritual transformation, without the empowering of the spirit of God. We cannot effect or cause our own spiritual transformation. Spiritual transformation must be caused and initiated by the Holy Spirit. It is not a human process. It is a Divine process. Initiated by Him. Continuing through Him. And ultimately achieved with Him.
All the power for the process is supplied by God. We can and should desire transformation. We can and should participate in spiritual transformation. But all the fuel for growth in this process comes entirely from the Spirit of God.
It is critical if we would receive Spiritual trans4mation. That we realize and focus on the fact that we receive power after. I repeat after. The Holy Ghost comes upon us. We must receive Him. We must dwell in Him. He must dwell in us. We must yearn Him. We must learn Him. We must walk in Him. The entire transition of spiritual transformation is dependent on our continued cooperation and growth in and through the Spirit of God!
If we would be transformed, as God makes it plain that he wants us to be in Romans 12:2. Then we must being powered by the spirit of God. Seeking spiritual transformation without the empowering of the spirit of God. Is like trying to run a car without Electrical current. The entire process must be built around this power and can never occur without it!
God please fill me with Your Spirit anew today!
