We made a decision to turn our wills and our lives over
to the care of God.
Brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
1. We all have great potential for change but we cannot do it under our own power. When we turn our will and life over to the care of God we need to depend on Him to renew our minds and hearts.
You are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9
2. We are no longer slaves our problems but ‘a chosen people’ to receive God’s healing love so we can share it with others.
This is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel after those days,” says the Lord. “I will put my instructions deep within them, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Jeremiah 31:33
3. God wants personal relationship with each of us. No matter who we are or what we have done He delights in new ways of showing us His love.
My dear friend, whom I love in the truth. I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit. 3 John 1-2
4. Addressing our physical and emotional problems can be the key to restoring both physical and spiritual health.
