If your health or finances or circumstances contradict your God-design and purpose and future, His will is that you overcome those contradictions. So this boils down to two things in my thinking: 1) we need to recognize the contradictions in our life and 2) we need to know that overcoming them will involve changing our thinking and choices. I’m not talking about contradictions coming at us from Washington D.C. or CNN or TBN or our boss. I’m talking about up close and personal, on-our-own-front-porch stuff that is hindering our purpose and future. The simple truth is that without repentance, there is no change and without change there is no overcoming contradictions that keep affecting our life and our legacy.
