Be Changed

All of us are creatures of habit, because there are some things that we do consistently.  There is usually no variation in the way that we do some things.  We travel to work the same way, at the same time almost every day.  When something comes and throws off our routine, that forces us to make adjustments to our plans that can sometimes make us feel uncomfortable.  Change is not easy in any situation, but many times change is necessary if we are truly going to accomplish the things that The Lord has for our lives. 

The Scripture reminds us to, not be conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of our mind, that we may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.  I encourage you today to be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Allow The Lord to renew and refresh your mind daily, and do not return to old habits of doing the same things the same way every time, be open to the change The Lord may want to make in your routine.  When you are transformed by the renewing of your mind there are some things that would have bother you before, but because of the transformation you have gone through they do not bother you.

Do not only be transformed in your mind, but in your spirit as well, so that you can know without a doubt what is the good and acceptable will of God for your life.  God has some things that He has already destined you to do; you just have to get on the same page with God so you can walk in your destiny.  When you are transformed in your mind, and in your spirit and you begin to walk in the perfect will of God for your life, you will discover that although it may not be easy all of the time, you know that you are in the right place in God, and you can have peace about your journey. 

Transforming and changing is never easy, but when you make up your mind to change, you will be blessed and it will be worth the change.  Each day I need The Lord to transform me closer to being the person He wants me to be, and as I am transformed by the renewing of my mind I can see more clearly the perfect will of God for me.

Since I am being transformed daily I have no doubt, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"

Prayer

Lord thank you for the change that you make in my life.  Lord I want to walk in the blessings that you have for my life, so transform my mind to walk in your will daily.  In Jesus name Amen.
