Things You Can Never Unsee

Certain revelations are so eye opening and so revealing that they change the very core of your thinking. The first time I ever saw a person’s core way of thinking completely change, I was traveling across the United States with a Russian immigrant who had just escaped from the Iron Curtain. He knew I was a pastor’s son and was familiar with our church.
We had been asked to help him assimilate into the United States, so he had joined me in my journey across America to pick up some equipment for the church. After two days of travel we stopped at a McDonald’s restaurant and I bowed my head to pray for the meal. He looked at me and laughed, “Richard, why go through the ritual of praying? Nobody here is watching from the church, and there are no government cameras that are looking down upon you. So why bother to go through the action of praying?”
I suddenly realized that this young man did not believe in God. His “God” was the totalitarian government because they had been watching and spying on him all the time. I then took a long time and explained to him that I prayed to remind myself that the machines inside of McDonald’s did not create the burger I was eating. It had come from a cow miles away where a farmer fed him, and the ability for that cow to grow came from God. I wanted God to know how thankful I was for creating that cow and providing the meat for my hamburger.
After days of explaining to him how God was in the heart of many Americans, suddenly I saw his eyes open. He understood God was the One watching over America and not the government. He saw that God has given us the freedom that we enjoy. Once his eyes were opened to this basic truth, he could never “unsee” it again. The core of fear that had been birthed in him since he was a little boy was completely broken and Jesus had set him free. This kind of change in thinking comes from the Scripture that says, “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” When Jesus opens your eyes it changes everything!
I am writing this blog because many of you are on the verge of a great promotion. When God promotes you, His promotion is so complete it changes everything that you used to rely on. Even your traditional way of thinking is suddenly brand new. The whole world changes, and what used to be impossible, where you never would have even considered the luxury of such thinking, now becomes normal activity.
I once knew a man who was responsible for many monthly payments, requirements, and stressful transactions in his business. He would wait for the proper financial reprieve and it would relieve him, until the next series of payments due came into his corporate office. One day something changed, but it had nothing to do with his physical or financial position. The change came in his core way of thinking. The change was so complete that it brought youthfulness to his face and a spring in his step. It even removed pain from his body and anguish from his mind!
The most critical change was that empty feeling he would experience every time he faced a bill he had to pay was gone. The worry of whether the right amount of money would come in to pay the bill had left him. The change in this man came from a word from God. He had been given a word that he fully embraced, and the word became a foundation for every thought he had. The transformation was so complete in his thinking that he could not “unsee” the revelation of that word. It became such a rock of foundation that everyone around him began to be influenced by his thoughts and actions.
This is the power of the word of God. It is the foundation that this planet is built upon. Of course each one of us could say, “Oh! That would be so nice if it was that simple!” What’s amazing is that it is very, very simple. Eye-opening revelations can completely change your core way of thinking and can happen as quietly as a whisper. This change is so internally transforming it’s as if you lived in a pauper‘s house and suddenly you feel at home in the palace of a king. Every person in the Bible that became a front-page story of faith went through this transformation. It’s not something I can predict or foretell, but it is something that I am positive is going to happen to every one of you that are connected in the Spirit to our church, A Place To Meet Jesus.
There is something rumbling in the spiritual realm. Open your eyes to see the tsunami wave of His glory as it raises the level of the ocean. It is going to happen to each one of you in a unique way. My message to you today is to expect it, embrace it, and receive it! It’s from God and it’s by God. He’s your Father, it’s completely safe, and it will bless you and the generations that follow you for many years to come!
Sent in love,
Pastor Richard Gazowsky
