READ: Romans 12:2 Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
Do you ever wonder what God's will is for your life? Romans 12:2 gives us a clue as to how we can truly "KNOW" what God's will is for us. The secret lies in our mind and God's Word! The Word of God tells us to let God transform you by changing the way you 'think'.
Changing the way that we think can be a process and it involves speaking the Word of God over ourselves. If you have received Jesus as your Savior - did you know that the Word of God says you are:
An heir of God since you are a son/daughter of God (Galatians 4:6,7 - And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.” Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir.)
Righteous and Holy (Ephesians 4:24 - Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.)
An expression of the life of Christ, because He is your life (Colossians 3:4 - And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory.)
These are not exactly things that we tell ourselves when we wake up each morning.... but why not? It is exactly what God says about you. Do you want to change the way you think? Do you want to know what the will of God is for your life? === SPEAK the Word of God over your life, your mind will be transformed, and you will not look anything like this world. That should be the goal of everyone of us!
Dear Jesus - help me each day to renew my mind with Your Word. I want YOUR WORD to be the first thing I read each day, the first thing I put my mind on, mediating on Your Word throughout my day, and the last thing that I think of before I drift off to sleep at night. Help me to make the Word of God top priority in my life each and every day. In Jesus Name - Amen.
