10 Ways You Can Change the World

10 ways you can change the world for jesus

This is a guest post by my friend and BSSM graduate Travis Young. If you’d like to see your writings published on the Revival Lifestyle Blog, just click here for more info. Now enjoy this great read!

Pulling people out of wheelchairs, raising the dead, seeing eyeballs recreated as you pray, scooping brains back into a head and watching the scars disappear and the man who was dead sit up, walking on water and being transported across the world to another nation. I’ve heard stories of such things but I haven’t personally experienced stuff like this … Yet!!!

I have seen the small beginnings of a journey to a life like this. I’ve seen people cry as depression and fear leaves because they were given the gift of peace. I have felt cartilage regrow underneath my hands in the knee of a person I’m praying for, and I have seen a man collapse and fall into my arms as demons literally leave his body, I will never forget his smile and laugh after being freed. I’ve seen miracles and signs to make you wonder, and as I journey into a life where extraordinary things happen on a day to day basis this is what I have discovered.

Here my list of 10 things I have learned that are helping me change the world:

1. My life is never marked by events of ministry, rather, it’s marked by a lifestyle of it. No matter where you are or where you work, there are always opportunities to help people encounter the love of God.

2. Arguments will never help you win.  People are who they are because of the life experiences that they have had.  You can never argue someone out of an experience, but you can give them a new one that was better then their last one.

3. Conquering fear will change your life. Fear will be your greatest adversary in anything, whether it’s a dream inside your heart or a mission you have been given by the Holy Spirit. I heard a quote that said, “Nothing cures fear faster then action”. Don’t wait to do what you know you should. Time won’t wait for you.

4. You may be the only Jesus that people ever see. People will get an impression of Jesus by how the people who claim to fallow him act. How will you represent him?  Bill Johnson said, “Everyone wants a king like Jesus”. Some people have poorly shown the true qualities of Jesus; “We need to represent him well”.

5. Let your life do the talking. If people badmouth you, slander you, and don’t believe you, you have to be ok with that! I tell people to come hang out with me for a day and you will see why I believe what I believe.

6. Boldness isn’t so much to do with you not being afraid of what people think as much as it is being sure of what He thinks of you. “Who you are is Whose you are”, and “Confidence comes from knowing whose you are”

7. Don’t let disqualification decide who you are going to be and what you are going to do. There is always going to be someone more qualified for the job and better prepared. The only choice you have is to decide if feeling unprepared is going to prevent you from doing something great, assuming someone else is going to man up, or taking charge, will only lead to never even trying at all. Trust that the Holy Spirit will provide everything that you need in that present moment to accomplish the tasks that have been set before you.

8. Sometimes we are waiting for God to move when he is actually waiting for us. Jesus commissioned us to change to world and to preach the good news. He called us to heal the sick, cast out demons and raise the dead! Realize what he told you to do, understand what you’ve got, and do what he did. Stop waiting, start doing.

9. Create opportunities for others to grow and be ok with people not being where you are at.  Not everyone is going to have all the revelation you have, and you won’t see eye to eye with everyone. Jesus called us to love those around us and teach and guide when called upon. This is how people will change – although you can’t let this stop you from healing and prophesying over people; that has the tendency to change minds quickly too.

10. It is ok to not know the answer to every question. This lesson I would stress almost higher then any other. Being able to say “I don’t know” will save many people from being hurt at the expense you pretending to have it all together. Saying “I don’t know” shows that you have much more to learn and will provide you with opportunities to learn from others. I mean, let’s face it. We will never have all the answers; the universe is just too big. Let’s just remember that every day is an opportunity for Jesus to teach us something new.

And there you have it. Do you think I missed anything? What would you have added to the list? I would love to hear your thoughts! (Leave a comment in the section below)

I’ll close with this amazing quote by Theodore Roosevelt.

“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.”

God bless you as you continue to change the world with the One who created you!
