PrayFit Devotional: Change in Heart; Feb 7, 13; Read: Matthew 17
“Nothing will be impossible for you…” –Matthew 17:20

I was asked recently if I thought 33 days was a long enough period to create a change in heart and transform a life. The person on the other end of the question was referring to the time-frame we have listed on our DVDs. And my answer was two-fold. First, a month is both anecdotally and scientifically justified in helping people create habits, so we’re confident to that end. After all, our resources are all about helping people get a jump-start on good, solid daily routines of devotions and exercise.

But then it hit me. I’m the wrong person to answer the question. Instead, I say we ask the woman at the well, the blind man in the temple or the criminal on the cross. Let’s ask them about the day they met Him. After all, from the moment you meet the one who forgives your past, gives you sight, or secures your future, the only real time frame in question is any moment spent without Him.

So while we could have written our books or these DVDs to be any length, it’s remembering the lengths He went to show us His love that cause a change in heart. You know, it’s ironic…we’re bold to declare that faith can move a mountain, and yet we doubt it can help us move a muscle. –Jimmy Peña
