Experiences + Emotions = …

We are a people gifted with emotions. Think about a certain movie, perhaps one that makes you cry. Maybe there is one that makes you laugh. A certain experience will produce certain emotion. And that’s simply how we are crafted.

Think about the last or sermon you heard. You probably left service ready to go and change the world or ready to start a ministry that day! But let a few days go by and the feeling fades away.

Our time with the Lord has to move beyond experiences and emotions. Once the tears stop flowing, the fire dies down in our bellies, and we stand up after being knocked off our feet by the Word, what happens next? The emotions are appropriate and we need the experiences, and after both are done, we need the lifestyle change.

We must transition from experiences and emotions to transformations…

In the presence of the Lord, we must be transformed. Each time we enter into His presence, we come out better, stronger, and wiser. We come out prepared for whatever fiery darts awaits us.

Experience + emotions must equal transformation. Transformation is that change that lasts. It keeps the fire lit, it starts that book you long to write, and it ignites that ministry that will change your community!

Don’t let the power just fall away. Let your quiet time empower you for the day ahead, not just the moment. Prayer should embolden you for the obstacles ahead.

Be transformed.

Peace and Blessings

  1. This post reminds me to not let the fire go out once I hear the message of the Lord and am inspired to be transformed. It helps me to remember that action and application are the forerunners of faith after all our faith is a verb for what is “walking” with our Lord than an action of stepping in line with Him? Thank you so much for this inspiring message.
