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, NIV
Inside each of us is a blessed, prosperous, victorious person. This person is free from addictions and bad habits. This person is confident and secure, talented and creative, disciplined and focused. But just because this person is in you doesn’t mean he or she is automatically going to come out. This person has to be released.
The apostle Paul gives us the secret: “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” In the original language, the word transformed is metamorphoo.It’s where we get our word metamorphose. We know how caterpillars metamorphose into butterflies. Paul is saying that if you’ll get your thoughts going in the right direction and not dwell on “not able to” thoughts and program your mind with what God says about you, then a transformation will take place. Here’s the key: it’s not up to God; it’s up to us. The only way to release your butterfly is to get your thinking in line with God’s Word.
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
“Father, thank You for the transformation that You are working out in my life through the renewing of my mind. Thank You that I can get my thinking in line with Your Word and change my life. I believe that You are recreating me to soar. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
