God’s Transforming Power - July 2, 2015

Family pain is often the deepest pain because it was inflicted so early, and because it involves people who should have been trustworthy. You were too young to process the mistreatment. You didn’t know how to defend yourself. Besides the perpetrators of your pain were so large. Your dad, mom, uncle, big brother—they towered over you, usually in size, always in rank. When they judged you falsely, you believed them. All this time you’ve been operating on faulty data. You’re stupid. . .slow. . .dumb…like your daddy.

Decades later these voices of defeat still echo in your subconscious. But they don’t have to! Romans 12:2 says to let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. And 1 Corinthians 13:11 adds to let Him replace childish thinking with mature truth! You are not who they said you were. You are God’s child!
