OPEN HEAVEN 30 OCTOBER 2021(POSITIVE TRANSFORMATION) MEMORIZE: 1Samuel 10:6
READ: Romans 12:1-2 (KJV)
1. I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2. And be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
The Almighty God has the power to transform anyone or anything either positively or negatively. For example, the Lord, at the beginning of creation transformed ordinary dust into the raw material He used to create man in His image (Genesis 2:7). That is a positive transformation. God however also transformed King Nebuchadnezzar from man to beast (Daniel 4). This is a negative transformation and I pray such will never be your portion in Jesus’ name. The story behind the memory verse of today reveals divine transformation in the life of the first king of Israel – King Saul. Not only was Saul anointed as king, he also started to prophesy. This brought about the popular saying in Israel “Is Saul also among the prophets?” (1 Samuel 10:12).
The Bible says: Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new. – (2 Corinthians 5:17) (1 Peter 2:9) also says: But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Beloved, do you desire a positive divine transformation? If so, you need to take drastic measures by presenting your body to God as a living sacrifice and ensuring that you do not conform to the standards of the world (Romans 12:1-2). Divine transformation turns an enemy of God to a friend of the same God. It instantly turns sinners to saints.
However, there is only one Person who can make this happen: Jesus Christ is His name and His blood cleanses us from all sin (1 John 1:7). To experience a positive divine transformation, old things must pass away and the fellow must now live according to the principles of the Kingdom of God. May the transformational power of the Almighty God come upon you as you pray and earnestly long for it today, in Jesus’ name. The good news is that you can be transformed, no matter how terribly sinful or wicked you may have been in the past. All you need is to accept God’s invitation (Isaiah 1:18) and your life will never remain the same.
PRAYER POINT: Father, please let Your power cause a positive transformation in my life today, in Jesus’ name.
