“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.” —Romans 12:2
The renewed mind is a powerful thing, which leads to a transformed life. When we are born again, born into the family of God (Jn. 1:13). We become new creations,
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” —2 Corinthians 5:17
But that doesn’t mean we don’t bring some of our old thinking into our new life. It is critical we allow our minds to be renewed i.e. that we allow God to begin to change or upgrade the way we think.
How do we do this?
By spending time in the word of God and time in prayer.
We need to seek God as though our life depends on it—because it does!
As though all of our deepest questions can be answered by Him and Him alone—because they can!
If you are desperate for a transformation in your life then friend, it’s time to go deeper with your Heavenly Father. It’s time to take the relationship to the next level. But its up to you to make the choice! You’ve got to decide today whom you will serve (Josh. 24:15). And then keep making that decision tomorrow, and the next day, and so on.
We either conform to the world’s way of doing things or we allow our lives to be totally transformed through new thought patterns—a renewed mind.
It’s time we begin to look at the Word of God in a new light! That we begin to realize it’s our owner’s manual for how to do life and it’s high time it’s taken off the shelf!
The word is the key friend!
And it’s imperative we are in it so we can truly and deeply know the Truth and experience the true freedom that follows! As I wrote about in a previous devotional, Knowing Truth—A Key To Freedom, we need to intimately know Truth, which doesn’t come through memorizing verses, though a wonderful thing to do, it comes through knowing Jesus who is Truth.
Let’s devour the Word of God and spending time in the secret place daily. Everything you need to know is in the Book! You don’t need someone else to read it to you or interpret the scriptures for you because when you are born again you have the Spirit of God living in you and the Spirit teaches us all things (John 14:26).
I love you,
P.S. How can I be praying for you today?
