Changed

Today's Verse:

I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart. ~Psalm 40:8

 

Transformation speaks of something that goes through a complete change. The thing that has been changed is no longer what it once was. It has taken on a complete makeover within and without. This morning, we are looking at the power of a life that has experienced transformation by the power of the gospel.

 

We see a miserable past.

David said, “He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay.” An unsaved person has a past that is described as horrible. We were captives to sin. We were stuck in a pit that we could not climb out of. Our feet and pathway were completely unstable and was described as being in miry, or sinking, clay. We had a hopeless situation. We were headed to Hell to spend all of eternity there. There was nothing that we could do to change our life or predicament. Never forget that salvation is all of God, and nothing of us. Without Jesus' death on the cross for sins, our sin debt could not be paid in full, and God’s demands for sin could not be satisfied.

 

We see a miraculous performance.

“And set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.” Our salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ is a miracle from God. God pulled us out of sinking sand and placed us firmly on a solid rock. Instead of wandering, our life now has a purpose and destination. We no longer sing songs of sorrow and hopelessness, but instead we sing a new song unto the Lord. We have been changed! We have a new life with a new desire. "Old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." We have been given a new home, a new relationship, a new life, and a new Lord. A transformed life is one that undergoes a miraculous performance.

 

We see a melodious praise.

“Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.” A transformed life is filled and overflowing with praise and acknowledgement to God for all His goodness in our lives. We count our blessings every day and realize they are more than can be numbered. We become overwhelmed at the goodness of God in our lives. There is a powerful correlation between a transformed life and the degree of praise that a person makes to God.

 

We see a motivated pursuit.

I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.” A transformed life delights in doing the will of God. It desires to obey God in all things. It lives for the sole purpose in doing what pleases God. Have you discovered what God’s will is for your life? Are you doing God’s will? David publicly told everyone that he loved doing that which was the will of God for his life.

 

So, we have seen some things that give evidence of a transformed life. Does your life show these things? Is your life hobbling along in the past, or vibrant because of what the Lord Jesus has done for you? Consider what the power of a transformed life did for David and what it could do for you!

 

Have a transformed God Morning!
