In the New Testament, repentance is called a change of mind, and the literal translation in Greek means “change your mind.” Every time you change your mind, replace it with God’s, you are repenting. Whether it’s regarding yourself, sin, God, people, life, future, or everything else, when you are willing to change yourself for God, you are repenting.
When we are willing to turn to God, to receive God’s love, to know that He loves us, and begin to love God, that is the repentance!
When we are willing to know Jesus’ salvation, to put down our own opinions and to obey God’s will, that is the repentance!
When we shed tears under the touch of the Holy Spirit, and have actions to transform ourselves, it is the best proof of repentance. God treasures us, including every teardrop we shed, He collects it.
God does not rebuke people but loves us very much. If we truly love God, we should learn from Him, not rebuke people, but love those whom He loves. What He loves is not only the Christians and the godly ones, but also all human being. Sincere and godly Christians are humble and gentle, and in them the likeness of Jesus Christ is seen.
When people’s hearts are touched by the Holy Spirit, they truly experience God’s presence, then the repentance will come. We just bring people to the Lord Jesus and pray for them. When people repent, the Holy Spirit will work to make people convicted that they are sinners and need the Savior Jesus Christ. Once they decide to turn from their sins, their repentance will lead them to the forgiveness of God.
When I truly repent, I will never go back how I was in the past, because in Christ, I’m a new creation, the old has gone, the new has come!
If you need someone to pray for you or your family, please leave your message. I can pray for you. I hope this sharing helps you to turn to God . Amen!
Perhaps you know little about me, but I have searched you, and I know you. I know when you sit and when you rise; I am familiar with all your ways. (Psalms 139:1-3) And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. (Matthew 10:30) I created you in my own image. (Genesis 1:27)
For in me you live and move and have your being. You are my offspring. (Acts 17:28) Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; (Jeremiah 1:5) and before the creation of the world I choose you in me to be holy and blameless in my sight. (Ephesians 1:4)
My eyes saw your unformed body; all the days ordained for you were written in my book. (Psalms 139:16) I marked out your appointed times in history and the boundaries of your lands.

I was misrepresented by people who didn’t know me. (John 8:41-44) I am not cold and angry, I have abundant love for you. Whoever lives in love lives in me, and I in them, for I am love. (1 John 4:16) My love has lavished on you, so you should be called God’s children! (1 John 3:1) The good gifts I give you are much better than people in the world can offer you.

I’m your Father, and I love you as much as I love my Son Jesus whom I sent to the world. (John 17:23) Jesus has revealed me to you and my love for you. (John 17:26)
The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, (Hebrews 1:3) and his first coming is for you, not against you, (Romans 8:31) not counting your sins. (2 Corinthians 5:19) I loved you and sent my Son as an atoning sacrifice for your sins (1 John 4:10) in order to reconcile you to myself through Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:18)
I did not spare my own Son, but gave him up for you all. (Romans 8:32) Whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also. (1 John 2:23) Nothing can ever separate you from my love. (Romans 8:38)
Return home to my arms! (Luke 15:20) Let’s have a feast and celebrate. (Luke 15:23) I’m your Father, and will be your Father forever, (1 John 3:1) but are you willing to receive Jesus, believing in his name to become children of God? (John 1:12)
I’m looking forward to your returning home. (Luke 15:20)
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 1 John 4:16
The Spirit of Heavenly Father came to me and said to me:
“Elena, my baby, I love you very much. You are my favorite daughter. I wait for you to talk to me every day. I like your joyful prayers to me. I am pleased with all your actions, especially when you are willing to do something for God. I see that you live for God and rejoice for God. Thus I rejoice with you.
My child, I love you. I always think about how to do is the best for you. One of your thoughts affects my thoughts. I am pleased that you do everything for me happily and joyfully. For me, what I have done for you is worthy.
I love you and don’t care about your appearance;
I care about you and accept who you are completely;
I miss you, want you to be close to me every day, and getting along with you brings me joy which is beyond words;
When you cry, I want to cry too;
When you laugh, I laugh with you too;
All your emotional reactions fascinate me, I cherish you more than myself,
I hope you share my love for you to people who knows me little, so that they can know how I love each of my children who rejoices for me and loves me.
I want you to spread my love for every children…”
If you feel that Heavenly Father has negative emotions towards you, it must not come from God, because God is love, and the one who lives in love is living in God, and God also lives in him. Amen!
