A transformed life is a powerful and persuasive testimony of God. It’s more powerful than anything we’ll ever say. When God fills us with His wisdom, power and love–we can’t keep it inside us. Light cannot be hidden unless it is cloaked in darkness. Jesus said, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew‬ ‭5:14-16‬) When we are born again, God connects us to Himself and gives us the ability to possess His power, wisdom and love. However, if we have cloaked ourselves in the darkness of our sin and independence from Him, no one will ever see it. As we take ourselves out from under the cloak of darkness, His light begins to shine in all we do and say!
God is brilliant. When we’re close to Him, we speak with His wisdom. God is all powerful. He never fails. When we’re close to Him, His power courses through us and He creates mountains of miracles from our wasteland of failure. God’s love is pure. When we are full of Him, our selfishness evaporates in the experience of His perfect love. We have no need to take anything from anyone because God satisfies us to the degree that we don’t need more. We become givers without expectation. When we’re full of His wisdom, power and love, we’re transformed and placed in the center of His miracles
How do we know God is working miracles through us? When we begin to do and say things that are clearly outside the realm of our own knowledge or ability. God is light and His light becomes evident. When we forsake darkness, He illuminates divine wisdom, fills us with Almighty power and satisfies us with perfect love. We are miraculously transformed. In Him, we become all He created us to be!
