Once God reveals Himself to us through a promise, there is no more ‘normal.’
We’re no longer the same person, because the Word of The Lord comes and immediately starts to uproot our thinking and our emotional patterns and re-directs all our affections and emotions and desires towards HIM and who HE says we are rather than on ourselves and who we think we are. The word of promise changes us and shapes us to think the way God thinks and to assess life the way Jesus assesses life. All things become possible in the light of God’s promise. God gives us promises so that we become someone else.
“For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe.
-1 Thessalonians 2:13”
