Fear of God Devotional: Taking A Turn In Your Life


What effect does repentance have upon our life?

John Snyder explains in this video that repentance is a complete shift of thinking about a matter so that there is a corresponding turn in our life. Scripture describes it as a gift from the Lord. It truly is a supernatural work that allows us to turn away from sin to God.

Regeneration changes what we think, what we desire, and what we choose. Similarly, when we repent, all three areas of our being are involved: we begin to think differently, we desire differently, and we choose differently. It is a turning away of all things sinful in order to turn towards God.

Proverbs 28:13 (NKJV) – “He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.”
