From Worries 2 Wonders?
Is it possible to get from worries to wonders in mere seconds? Yes, it is. Not by our own might but by the Holy Spirit.If the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, the one who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your human bodies also, through his Spirit that lives in you. (Romans 8:11, CEB)
If the same Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the tomb lives in you, also the same resurrection power is at work in you! It is indeed possible to get from worries to wonders in mere seconds. We are not alone with our troubles. It does not even matter what has caused our worries or what they are. We just need to bring them and ourselves in worship to God. We need to turn our worries into worship as @DJWickwire urged us on Twitter yesterday.
We are called to worship God in every situation. We are called to worship God even when we don’t understand why certain things are happening. We are called to worship God especially when it’s the last thing we’d like to do. Because that’s when we need it most. Because when we do worship despite of everything, the power of God can come and turn our worries into wonders. The Holy Spirit can transform us according to God’s plan for us. The resurrection power can bring us from death to alive.
As Reginald Wallis has stated “The triumphant Christian does not fight for victory; he celebrates a victory already won.” By bringing our worries and ourselves to God in worship, we invite the Holy Spirit to transform us and our situations. Our task is to trust God and worship him. He takes care of the rest.
That’s why we dare to embrace Christ and kiss the troubles on the mouth…and suddenly – by the Spirit of God – experience transformation. That’s why we can – by the power of God – move from worries into wonders in mere seconds when we start worshiping. That’s why we are – by the grace of God – being changed into the likeness of God from one degree of glory to another.
We can’t control our lives,
but we know You can.
We don’t have answers,
but we know You do.
We praise You for Your love and grace.
We praise You for Your salvation plan.
We praise You for being You.
You are everything we need
and so much more.
Dwell in us,
change us into Your likeness.
We worship You forever and ever.
In Jesus’ name,
Q4U: Have you experienced spiritual transformation?
Be blessed, my fellow pilgrim, as you worship God Almighty and live in his grace!

Psalm after Psalm demonstrate your words written above! When in the midst of trial, the Psalmists cried out to God…with praise! When we take our eyes off our worries and focus them on the beauty of our Father, peace is regained in our hearts.
Thank you, Joan, for your comment love! YES! Psalms is a great how-to book for praise and worship in the midst of anything and everything! May God continue to bless you richly!
