For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
Transformed Lives are not built because of the right of our lives or decisions but instead on the righteousness of our process. There is a difference between right and righteousness; doing and believing the right does not always translate the way we believe it should be. Righteousness says that our process, journey is one that allows for us through that which may or may not be right to move us to the place of our expected end. Everything in life is not just black and white but many areas are grey and the more we are open to the righteousness of process the more we are positioned to receive and leverage that which is before us toward our promise of abundant life. Just because you think you are right and this is what you believe God has said does not mean it ends up the way you want it to. God uses the twists and turns, ups and downs, the perceived victories and disappointments to shape and mold, transform our lives to that which should be. What is before you has not come to hurt or to harm you but proposer you to your expected end, the building out of a well-lived and joy filled life. The circumstances of your life may be approached from a circumcised, religious or right way or you may be approached, as a result of shortcomings, from an uncircumcised, secular or wrong way but what matters is your going through with God to get to where God wants you to be, the righteous way. Walk and flow with God and your life will be transformed in whatever situation you are in and how you or others may perceive it, it will work together for your good to Occupy Your Promise, transforming you and your space and sustaining you in your life and life more abundantly!
