#046: Why Does Transformation seem to Take So Long? Part 1 [Podcast]

In today’s episode, we talk about why it seems transformation takes longer than we anticipate or expect. My wife Melissa and I delve deeper into the contributing factors that we don’t realize when it comes to seeing change, healing, freedom and over transformation take place.

Included in this episode are the following factors:

1. We live from just our minds and not our hearts.

2. We fail to see the pioneer work involved with changing.

3. Your biggest battles are often the ones that run in your family.

4. We have no grid to understand and fight spiritual resistance.

Mark references the book The War of Art by Steven Pressfield.

Question: Which factor hit home the most after listening to this episode?

    Mark and Melissa,

    Excellent stuff as always. Just a point of clarification and perhaps an opportunity for your commentary?

    I think sometimes we get discouraged with the concept of transformation because we forget that we are not supposed to minister to the old man in a sense and heal him. Jesus didn’t die on the cross to heal the old man, but rather he succeeded in killing the old man. And our task is not to heal that which was executed at the cross, but to draw from the new man and the new creation which we have become.

    So rather than get discouraged about occasionally living in the old mindset, we have simply forgotten that we have already been completely transformed the new creation in Christ we are. Our task then is too renew our minds to the point where we quickly identify when we are drawing from the old man and our past experiences, and by the empowering of the Holy Spirit cast down that thinking and choose to respond to life situations from the Spirit of Christ who dwells in us and in His image we have been recreated. In other words we must continually remind ourselves of our new identity and position until living from that mindset becomes our habit and life principle.

    This to me seems to be A matter of Revelation we sometimes take knowledge of but often forget

    God bless and keep up the great work.

    • Hi Jim! Appreciate the thoughts and feedback brother. Transformation is certainly an amazing journey, and one that we can gain so much as we go from glory to glory. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
