“Do not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2, NKJV
Early in my Christian walk I would read my Bible even when I didn’t feel like it, and even when I didn’t understand anything I read. I didn’t give up. I kept asking, seeking, and knocking on His door. I began noticing my way of thinking began to change, and the things I used to do, no longer interested me. I saw and thought differently. I made a decision to not allow the devil to steal one more day from me and now I am enjoying the blessing of having the mind of Christ.
God wants to transform you and bless your life. He wants you to receive the mind of Christ. If He did it for me, He will surely do it for you. Having and maintaining the mind of Christ doesn’t happen overnight. We spent a lot of time believing the lies of Satan and adjusting to the stereotypes and ways of this world. To see real change will take consistency. With consistent time spent with the Lord, in prayer and in reading the Bible, God begins to renew your mind and change your life.
Prayer: Father God, I praise You for sending Your Son Jesus to give His life so I can live with You forever. I come to You today seeking, knocking and asking for the mind of Christ. I want to think right, live right, respond right. I want to treat people right. Change me Lord and use me to help others. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
(Read Ephesians 4:22-24; Colossians 1:21-22; Colossians 3:10; Philippians 2:5)
