Transforming Your Thinking

 

Romans 12:1-2

 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

 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.

A transformer is a device that has the ability to change one voltage to another. When electricity is produced at the power plant, it can be changed to a higher voltage by a step-up transformer to travel great distances on the transmission lines. Then it also can be changed by a step-down transformer at the Substation, commercial customers, and residential customer, to lower the voltage. Whatever the application, the principle is still the same: change (transform) the voltage so it can be useful.

God changes us at various times, so we can be used for his purpose! When we read the scripture above, it tells us not to be conformed to this world, but transform our minds by renewing our thinking. We are only changed (transformed) when we change our thinking. It is by the renewing of our minds that our thought pattern changes. I know it’s not good English but, “stinking thinking, keeps you sinking”. If we are honest with ourselves, at one time or another we have been taught the difference between right and wrong. But as always we are free to make our own choices, and this will always define our direction in life. Make the right changes in your life, and you will never regret it.

Prayer:

Lord, I pray that you change my thinking to line up with the Word of God. I don’t want to be what the world tries to shape me into, thinking as the world thinks. If my thinking is guiding me in the wrong direction, let my mind be open to a renewed relationship with you by the power of the Holy Spirit. Let the Holy Spirit guide me in this world, in my everyday life, and transform my thinking to line up with your purpose for me and my life. I pray this prayer in your Son, Jesus Christ name!
