Transforming your Mind

 

 

Romans 12:2

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the

renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and

acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

 

If we are not careful, we will let what’s going on in the world cause

the spirit of fear, unbelief, distraction, depression etc. to come

upon us. The news and headlines are filled with crime, natural

disasters, disease and so many other things to fill our hearts and

minds with despair. If the happenings haven’t touched your family

directly, it has touched someone that you know.

In order to not be crippled by the happenings in the world, we must

remember that the word of God has already fore told of these and the

many things to come so that in Him we may have peace. In this world we

will have trouble but take heart knowing that He has already overcome

the world.

In elementary school, the teacher would begin each Monday by passing

out spelling words for an upcoming test on Friday. Throughout the

week, we would have an assignment to familiarize ourselves with the

spelling words by using them in a sentence, looking the words up in

the dictionary for the definition, word search and various other tasks

in order to prepare us for the upcoming test. The teacher had taken

God’s principal through the word of God and utilized it to make us the

students successful for the test. God is always preparing us for

things to come, in subtle and also obvious ways. Renewing our minds

allows us to live in a world where trouble is but not be affected or

conformed to the way it is. Now That’s a Word!
