Obedience Unlocks God’s Power

In summary of Ephesians 4:23 it says, “Always be renewed in your thinking, let the Spirit change the way you think.”

Bottom Line:
Let the Spirit renew you and influence your way of thinking.

What this means to me:
God wants his Spirit living in me to constantly renew my mind, giving me a fresh mental and spiritual attitude.  So I should let his Spirit help me each day.  God’s word has taught me that the Holy Spirit releases his power the moment I take a step of faith.  It is only after I take that step forward in obedience and faith that I can truly see unlock this power.  God will not pressure me, he wants me to act first.  So I need to learn to not wait until I feel powerful or confident, but to move ahead in my weakness, doing what is right in spite of any fears or how I feel.  In the long run moving forward in obedience and faith need to become my default habitual act (what comes naturally.)  So today, I really need to spend some time focusing on what area in my life I need to take a step of faith and move forward regardless of fears/feelings.
