S03 Ep03: Repentance

Repentance is a gift from God, yet it is also a misunderstood word. I also find that it is an underutilized tool. Yet as believers, we have an incredible privilege to engage fruitful ways of thinking and move into new directions. This becomes empowered through heart-felt repentance, which involves shifting from one way of thinking and living and moving into another. This is a great opportunity we have to empower our transformational journey.

Have You Utilized the Power of Repentance?

Repentance is our God-given tool as believers to break the chains that bind us. It grants you the empowerment to come out of cooperation with any destructive way that may be working in your life. Repentance gives you the leverage to tell the enemy to get out of our life. It gives you hope that anything can change in your life under the work of God.

Confusion Around Repentance

But do you actually understand repentance? Many see it as something you only do at conversion when you come to Christ. For many, repentance brings up

Repentance has a beautiful and multifaceted meaning.

For many, the word repentance brings up destructive and incorrect references. It was seen as a shame-filled experience, riddled with condemning preaching or angry legalism. Those unloving references are not what repentance is all about. That is why it is so important that we understand the goodness and love of Father God. Otherwise, we will see repentance as an experience where we grovel before God. That is why many do not see fruit from repentance.

Repentance is Empowered by God’s Goodness

Repentance is empowered by the goodness of God.

Romans 2:4 Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?

That is why I am so passionate about teaching the love of Father God. If you do not know God deeply loves you, you will continually repent through a guilt and condemnation pathway.

Many others see repentance as something where if you say it enough times, then God will hear you. This is not a proper understanding of it either.

What changed the journey of transformation for me was when I realized that I do not need to be a victim to the enemy’s ways. I can break agreement. That is the great power of repentance.
