True Repentance!

Thought For Today:

The Lord wants us to bear fruit of repentance.  Repentance involves the mind, will, and the emotions.  Recognizing your faults (mind); Feeling sorry (emotions); Doing something about it (will).  Often times a person may recognize and feel sorry for what they have done and may even confess it to the Lord and ask for forgiveness. But neglects to act upon the will - doing something about it to make things right, in other words -Restitution. I submit to you today that some of us are going around being sorry for the same thing over and over again and never walking in victory over that thing because they have yet to make restitution for the wrong they have committed.  Example: If you have stolen something you ought to replace it, if you have wrong your brother/sister/neighbor/friend - you ought to go to them and reconcile. I believe that Pride is the reason why some won't take it to that step. I encourage you today to humble yourself - walk in victory and make restitution for any wrong that you have committed between you, God, and anyone else that was involved in the situation and watch what happens in your life as a result. I promise you - your life will never be the same again :-)  I challenge you to walk in Victory and not defeat.
