Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].”
Have you ever said, “I don’t know what my purpose is. I don’t know Jehovah’s will for my life. I don’t know what I’m supposed to be doing. Why am I here?” This Word right here always blesses me because it tells us how to find out.
1. DO NOT CONFORM TO THIS WORLD:
When we stop trying to be like the world; when we stop fashioning our lives after them; when we learn to be holy because Jehovah is holy; when we stop focusing on money more than Jehovah and seek the kingdom and His righteousness first; when we stop hustling for the world more than we hustle for the kingdom, then the next step is to be transformed.
2. BE TRANSFORMED BY RENEWING YOUR MIND:
It isn’t too late. We can change right now with the help of Holy Spirit. We do not have to stay like this. All we have to do is renew our minds daily. We’ve been thinking the way we have for YEARS. We’ve been brainwashed and influenced by propaganda to want the things that we want and do the things that we do and believe what we believe. The way to renew our minds is to think fresh, right thoughts that align with the Word of God. We change our attitude by protecting our eye gates, ear gates, and mouth gates. We can’t let any and everything “in” or “out.” Change our thinking by thinking what God says to think.
3. PROVE GOD’S GOOD AND ACCEPTABLE AND PERFECT WILL:
Now we can prove for ourselves what God put us here for. Who we are supposed to be with in marriage; who we are supposed to allow in our space and circle; who we are in the fivefold ministry; who we are in the kingdom; the business we’re supposed to be in; the ministry we should have; where we should live, bank, buy.
Don’t you want to know His good and perfect and acceptable will for your life? I’m tired of getting it wrong. I’m tired of not knowing His will. I’m tired of being with the wrong man. We can’t live the same and think the same way the world does and expect to get a different outcome. It’s time for a mind renewal.
