Valuable Insights 10 Supernatural change
When people get sick and tired of being sick and tired, they will do something about it. Otherwise, they will continue to be passive and live with it.
Listen to this short audio clip from part one of "Change" and be challenged to make a life change of your own, in harmony with God’s will for you. Pastor Marino also touches on the subject of sleep.
People need to witness things happening in the physical realm. The change desired needs to be manifest in their lives. People need to be placed somewhere else. People need supernatural help.
Where in the Bible can we see a demonstration of the following?
(1) Something that needed to happen in the physical realm! (Body movement)?
(2) A manifestation of change!
(3) A person placed in another location!
(4) Supernatural help!
Turn to the 12th chapter of Acts. Read the whole account, Acts 12:1-18 to discover some of the secrets to manifesting change in your life.
"About that time Herod the king laid violent hands upon some who belonged to the church. He killed James the brother of John with the sword; and when he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Peter also. This was during the days of Unleavened Bread. And when he had seized him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending after the Passover to bring him out to the people. So Peter was kept in prison; BUT earnest prayer for him was made to God by the church."
Key statement: Earnest, fervent prayers will move physical "things" (objects and people) and cause situations to change.
Earnest in the Greek means fervent or "very hot."
Earnest in the Dictionary means "serious state of mind, intense."
If God desires a change in our life, and we are aware of it, and we do nothing about it, life will be a monotonous boring routine (unfulfilled, in a rut, humdrum, dull, same old thing) sick and tired of being sick and tired.
However if the decision is made to believe God for the proper change in our life with some earnest, fervent and intense prayer, be ready for some supernatural God-change.
