“And do not be 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)
When we act like people in the world, we CONFORM to their standard. But the Word of God TRANSFORMS us: It renews our minds and causes us to think like Him. The word for TRANSFORM is the same word as “transfigure.” When Jesus spoke with Moses and Elijah, He was transfigured. There was a glow from within.
When your mind is renewed with God’s Word, your mind also begins to glow from within from God’s Word. Then, because of the renewing of your mind, you will know what is good, you will know what is acceptable, and you will know the perfect will of God.
It is very important to have a continual process of renewing our mind. Renewal can be achieved by reading, meditating, and “chewing” on God’s Word in a daily way. Then we make right decisions. Because we live in and associate with the world, our thoughts can, at any moment, conform to the world. That’s why it is so important to meditate on God’s Word daily.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Help us today to meditate on Your Word and to keep our minds renewed with a daily reading of Your Word.
In Jesus’s Name,
