Overcome The Past With Christian Inner Growth For Outer Success
Whatever Change We Desire, It Begins Within The Heart
Putting inner growth over outer appearances is a quality decision that will positively affect every part of your life. Many people believe that if they look great on the outside and work hard to be intellectually accomplished, they will attain the life of their dreams. However, for Christians this is only part of a well rounded lifestyle that needs to be grounded from within.
Change Begins From The Inside Out
Most people need to overcome character changes that were formed from our past experiences. When our lives get out of balance from deeply embedded behaviors that cause problems, something is going to give eventually. When it comes to having success over character flaws to create a better life, more than outward appearances and changes by suppression or willpower is needed.
What we need is to develop our hearts with God’s Word from Romans 12:2 to establish an inner growth and guidance to help us make wise decisions and to steer us toward the dreams that make each of us special and unique. Having a difficult past doesn’t have to keep us from living productive and successful lives.
Christian Inner Growth To Heal Soul Wounds
However, for those who have had difficult pasts, such as abuse from childhood, poverty or living without parents, for instance, the need for freedom from old wounds is more acute and in need to be dealt with if positive change can occur. There has to be a means of guidance to help such persons meet the challenges of change from the past to the present and the good news is that there is.
All born again Christians in Christ can become new. We can shed our old characters as naturally as a bird sheds it’s feathers. I’ve experienced this transformation and so have many Christians who weren’t able to have the best start in life. Inner growth, based upon God’s Word, is necessary and completely able to overcome the destruction of the mind with tainted realities. We are free in Christ to move forward to live our best lives by the Word and by God’s inner guidance.
Having an inner guidance and a strong belief in God gives much strength and courage to lives the success that God’s Word brings to the believer.
How To Change Past Realities To A New Reality In Christ
We Need To Live The Conversion That Begins At Christian Rebirth
It takes 3 steps to begin the process of overcoming a tainted or difficult past.
- Shed the “old man.”
- Put on the “new man.”
- Transform your heart, soul and mind with God’s Word.
CHRISTIANS MUST PUT OFF THE “OLD MAN”
Ephesians 4:22 (KJV) That ye put off concerning the former conversation (life) the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; The old man is who we were before our rebirth. It is us as we were brought into the world with sin. Now through Jesus Christ we can put on the “new man” and be free of sin through salvation.
PUT ON THE “NEW MAN” IN CHRIST
Ephesians 5:23 (KJV) 23And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Ephesians 5:24 makes the distinction between the “old man” and the “new man.” The “old man” is the person we were before salvation (spiritually). We are told that it is corrupt.
TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE WITH THE WORLD OF GOD
Romans 12:2 (ASV) 2 And be not fashioned according to this [a]world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is [b]the good and [c]acceptable and perfect will of God.
Follow these three steps, using Bible Studies and reading the Word where you need the most help will lead you to the character changes you need for success in life and in your life.
