Your thinking will not change God’s size but it will change your life.
It is important to understand this issue because it will make us obtain a breakthrough for our lives and in our nations. Many uncomfortable or inconvenient situations will remain the same until you obtain God’s presence in your life.
Isaiah 61:1”To proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners” – Only the free have the ability to release captives! Many live in bondage to fear, anger and selfish desires.
The attitude that we can “earn” the right to change God’s mind into answering our prayers because we have gone through the religious motion of fasting is shallow on our part.
It is only when you come to terms with the fact that you are spiritually bankrupt that you can even be saved. Salvation begins with the admission that you are unsaved. Redemption begins with the realization that you are a slave. It is only when you admit the spiritual poverty that God gives to you all of the riches that are in Christ Jesus.
Do you ever feel that way? You know the anger, and pain that sin creates in our lives. The good news is that the Bible says, “He (Jesus) was wounded and crushed for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace. He was whipped, and we were healed.” (Isaiah 53.5)
