Change your World
We are all believing God for a positive change in our lives and many Christians are still waiting for God to do something for them. They have prayed and fasted, but nothing seems to change. Some have accepted their situation as their fate and some have given up on the faith entirely.
These group of people usually ask the following questions:
• Why do bad things happen to good people?
• I have committed my life to God, but my peers who are not Christians are doing better than me?
The disciple of Jesus found themselves in a situation where they asked similar questions. They were caught up in an unexpected storm that threatened to sink the boat and possibly lead to their death. Jesus was in the boat, sleeping. The disciples were so indignant by this seeming nonchalant attitude of Jesus towards the situation and His insensitivity towards their plight. “Will You sleep while we die?” The disciples told Him as they yanked Him up from His sleep.
Jesus woke up, rebuked the wind and commanded the storm to be still. Looking at them, He rebuked them for their lack of faith. He did so for two reasons:
1. He told them before they embarked on the journey that they were going to the other side
2. He expected them to do what He did
Jesus was angry at their lack of faith because they did not trust in His words and neither did they believe in the power of God that was available to them, as a result of their association with Him. Jesus wanted them to take charge of the situation based on what He told them and their relationship with Him.
The Prophet Isaiah prophesied that when the Spirit comes from on high, then the wilderness will become a fruitful field and the fruit field a forest. Many have interpreted this to mean that the Holy Spirit will do the change. But this is not what the prophesy means. We see this when the Holy Spirit came on the day of Pentecost, the Bible tells us that they spoke in other tongues, Peter preached, and three thousand souls were won. Peter and John healed the lame man at the gate called “Beautiful,” and the disciples did many mighty works.
Question, who did these works? It was the people. The Holy Spirit, however, was the One Who empowered them to do it, but it was still them that did it. Therefore, the Holy Spirit has been given to us to transform the wilderness into a fruit field and fruit field into a forest. It is not the Holy Spirit that will do it, but He will empower us to do it.
The only question is, will you allow yourself to be a vessel the Holy Spirit will use to bring the needed change to the world.
