My heart has been stubborn!
In coming to join Reformation Developmental Center Pastored by Juanita Gibbs that I have come into an awareness that change begins on the inside first.
Chane happens from the inside out and not the outside in.
I had to begin to work on changing some core inner issues and stop fighting against what Gods word says about things. My stubborn ways bucked, fought, kicked and screamed to prevent me from changing and remaining the way I was.
The way I was, was a pathway to nothingness honestly. Being full of doubt, fear, worry, anxiety, negativity are all things counter intuitive to God and He wont show up in anything less than faith!
Therefore, change your hearts and stop being stubborn.
Deuteronomy 10:16 NLT
In a way God spoke through my Pastor about I need a genuine change at the heart of me to change what I have going on outwardly around me, how I handle outside circumstances and not be moved so much out of faith in God.
The stubborn heart of mine that has baulked at changing has had to learn to come under submission to Gods word. I had/have to learn to cast down everything that comes up from within that is contrary to the word of God.
By using the word of God it attacks the barriers in my heart to knock them down. This is the only way to clear the field so to speak and make my heart free to take on the new of the truth of Gods word. The more I do this the stubbornness lesses to change my heart to bring about the genuine change in my life from the inside out.
