LIFE SURGE this Saturday will be an incredible opportunity to….
- be equipped with life-changing wisdom
- connect with a remarkable community of like-minded believers,
- change your mindset and break down the enemy’s strongholds!
In today’s LIFE SURGE devotional, let’s walk together for a few minutes in a thought experiment, starting with this statement from Nick Vujicic…
If a man without arms and legs can dream big, so can you!
Imagine YOU are an elementary school kid, and YOU have no arms and no legs………….take time to picture it………What is it like to live without limbs? How does it feel to be relentlessly bullied at school, and constantly fearful for your future – with no hope and no visible purpose? Feels impossible, right?
As a child growing up in Australia, Nick Vujicic literally faced all of this. And yet, through the grace of God and the encouragement of a loving Christian family, Nick’s life became an astoundingly beautiful expression of what God can do in any of our lives.
In his journey from utter despair to victory, when Nick got a revelation of the depth of God’s love for him, and his unique calling and purpose – coupled with a pivot to the right attitude – everything began to change.
Roman’s 12:2 tells us “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Nick’s primary life-changing revelation was that he didn’t have a physical problem, he had a mindset problem. Change came when Nick began to focus on what he COULD do.
Jesus came that we might have abundant life; the Jesus way of living includes self-awareness and embracing who you are in Christ, through the lens of who GOD says you are.
Eph 3:20 “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.”
Heavenly Father, we pray that this week we will gain a fresh revelation of who we are in Christ, of the abundant life you have for us, and of what is possible – as we engage in the LIFE SURGE movement and with this loving community of Christians.
We can’t wait to see you on Saturday morning!
