Holy Spirit the Catalyst for Change
I believe God is about to bring a positive change in your life. I believe prophetically it is your season of change. Great things are about to happen in your life. New opportunities are springing forth for you and l declare over you that it is a new beginning.
God’s plan for you is increase, wholeness, wellness, nothing missing or broken in your life. It does not matter your present challenges, the will of God for you is to prosper and be a blessing to your generation.
“For l know the plans l have for you, says the Lord, they are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope ” -JEREMIAH 2 9:11 NLT
I know right now that some circumstances in your life might not look like what the Word of God says about you but by the power of the Holy Spirit and you yielding to Him will change those circumstances for good and you will have a new beginning of great testimonies and breakthroughs. This change does not only refer to material things but also to your daily walk with God and the fulfillment of your divine assignment.
I believe God wants you to be on fire for His kingdom and live your life in view of eternity. I believe God wants to bring a transformation to your kingdom service from a life of indifference to a life of pure dedication to God’s kingdom and His purposes. It is time to change the way we live and start afresh to be more kingdom minded and break free from the influence of the spirit of mammon.
“Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and ALL OTHER THINGS shall be ADDED unto you”
– MATTHEW 6:33
You need to know that the word of God is living and powerful and it will bring about a new life. Your change begins when the word of God is REVEALED to you and you RECEIVE it with gladness (James 1:21-22).
To see your circumstances change supernaturally you have to change what you believe and lay aside anything contrary to the promise of God. In addition, also take hold of the truth of God’s word and act on it to see the change you desire. However, God is more interested in you experiencing a change than just changing your circumstances. In fact, from God’s perspective, for your circumstances to change, the change starts with you.
The core issue is for you to be transformed by the power and the wisdom of God. The degree to which you have been changed inwardly is proportionate to the degree to which you will experience changes in every other area of your life. You cannot deal with lack or poverty with a poverty mentality; neither can you live a victorious Christian life with sin consciousness, condemnation or guilt. As long as you see yourself as a sinner without power to live triumphantly then you will fall and stumble and excuse yourself as being a weak and imperfect person which is untrue according to God’s word.
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy SOUL prospereth”
– 3 John 1:2
“Ye are of God, little children and have overcome them: because GREATER is he that is in you than he that is in the world”
– 1 John 4:4
In order for you and your circumstances to change, you will need the person and ministry of the Holy Spirit. He is the catalyst for change. He is the one that will empower the word of God in your life to bring about the intended change you desire (John 6:63). You cannot do without the Holy Spirit.He is the catalyst for the change in you and around you. A catalyst is something that precipitates an event. When you precipitate you instigate, trigger or cause to happen. It is theHoly Spirit that triggers positive changes to happen and manifest in our lives.The Holy Spirit wants to precipitate the change you need. You need to knowHim, receive Him, yield to Him, learn to follow His guidance and learn how to release His power to change your circumstances. He is all that you need!
“And I will ask the Father, andHe will give you another Comforter (Counsellor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby),that He may remain with you forever—The Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive(welcome, take to its heart),because it does not see Him or know and recognize Him. But you know and recognize Him, for He lives with you[constantly] and will be in you”.John 14: 16 – 17 But you are not living the life of the flesh, you are living the life of the Spirit, if the [Holy] Spirit of God [really] dwells within you [directs and controls you].But if anyone does not possess the [Holy] Spirit of Christ, he is none of His [he does not belong to Christ, is not truly a child ofGod]. Romans 8: 9 Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you mightily, and you will show yourself to be a prophet with them; and you will be turned into another man.1 Samuel 10 : 6
How God anointed and consecrated Jesus of Nazareth with the [Holy] Spirit and with strength and ability and power; how He went about doing good and , [a} in particular, curing all who were harassed and oppressed by [the power of] the devil, for God was with Him. Acts 10:38 This promise of the Holy Spirit’s enduement is not just for pastors, Christian leaders or other people you believe are closer to God than you.
None of the people God used mightily in the Bible or presently were qualified for the gift of Holy Spirit neither did they merit it. When you give your life to God, the Holy Spirit resides on your inside. When you receive the free gift of salvation and His anointing and the baptism in the Holy Spirit, He will be your standby and advocate and you can enjoy continuous fellowship withHim. He directs your steps, plans and vision. People’s lives have been saved and changed through absolute dependency and continuous reliance on the Holy Spirit. You need to totally depend on Him for everything and He will direct you.Let me encourage you to start seeking to know the Holy Spirit through the scriptures. The written word will reveal His person and His ministry to you. Take your Bible and read scriptures about the Holy Spirit, listen to anointed messages and read inspired books about the Holy Spirit to gain more knowledge of Him and His ways. Develop a hunger to know him and activate that desire through prayer and solitude. He will manifest Himself to you through visions and revelations.Make a quality decision that you will listen for the voice of the Holy Spirit within your recreated human spirit one very issue and begin to practise His presence.
You will soon begin to notice changes in you and you will be more conscious of His presence in you. He will convict you in love when you speak inappropriately or act contrary to God’s word. I can guarantee you that your behaviour will begin to change effortlessly because the life of God is being released in you as you yield to His word in obedience. He will also help you to make the right decisions and to produce the fruits of the Spirit. ( Gal.5:19-22, Phi.2:12).
Moreover, as you learn more about the power of God in you and your authority asa believer to use it, your attitude towards what is around you changes and you rule over your circumstances. Your life and your circumstances will begin to change when you engage the person and the ministry of the Holy Spirit. He is the change agent of the trinity. He will create the atmosphere for the word to produce in your life and ministry. Make it your priority to know Him and pursue intimacy with Him. You will never remain the same!
