The Transforming Power of God

The fool has said in his heart, there is no God, (Psalm 14:1a, NKJV). This Psalm of David points to the fact that there are some on earth that believes that there is nothing like God. Some atheists refer to God as an imaginary big daddy in the sky. No thanks to some scientific and pseudo knowledge about existence, such as the Charles Darwin’s theory that heave corrupted the minds of some and made them darkened with foolishness. However theists whether they are Christians or not believe that there is a God, and there are worlds beyond the human physical existence. Now, whether God is invisible or not, it was revealed in the letters of Paul that God has shown what can be known about him to the people of the world, and his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, therefore men are without excuse (Romans 1:19-20, ESV).
Some are so foolish to think that all what they see naturally, the earth, water, mountains, fire beasts and all sort of creations came out of nothing, and there is no power in charge that has made all these things to manifest.

Now, away from the thoughts of the foolish which believe that there is no God, we can take a close observation at the creations of God which we are ourselves, and also the things around us. One of the things we can observe and make conclusion about in deep meditation is that, ‘‘conditions are not permanent.’’ The seasons are not permanent, not even night and day or the conditions of our bodies. We appear small as a child today, and as we age, we gradually transform into adults. Some may appear weak today in any aspect of life, and before you say Jack, they have waxed strong to the amazement of others. All these won’t come to be if there is not the presence of the power of God that directs them. They are all about the ‘‘transforming power of God.’’ One of the greatest miracles that can happen to a person on earth is to transform from being a sinner to a saint. An example of this miracle and personality transformation can be seen in the life of Saul who became Apostle Paul, the preacher of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ whom he initially persecuted, (Acts 9:1-22).

Another person that became an Apostle, even the Chief Apostle of Jesus was Simon Peter, who was initially cowardly to witness the Lord before the people and arresters of the Lord, (Matthew 26:67-74). But in the book of Acts, we see some scenarios where the same Peter that denied Jesus was filled with boldness and courage to declare the words of God before the people without fear, (Acts 2:14-36, 4:13-22). These happenings may seem an ordinary thing since they are being read, and we may forget about them quickly, but if we have had some of them happen to us before, perhaps, maybe the Lord has helped us to overcome some particular habits that are offensive, we will acknowledge the power of the Lord in the ability to transform. Therefore, it is for us to keep the flame of hope alive in us, and know that God is able to transform any negative situation we detest to something positive, for with God, nothing shall be impossible; only keep alive hope, faith and willingness for transformation, and the glory of God will be revealed when we least expect. Amen.
