Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

-Romans 12:2

If you’re not perfect, welcome to the club. All of us are on a journey of being transformed to be more like Jesus, but it’s a process.

The primary tool that God uses in that transformation process is his word. The more of the Bible you get inside of you, the more of God’s light and truth flow out of you.

The reality is that we’ve been programmed to think a certain way by our family and the culture we live in; sometimes that’s been good and sometimes it’s taken us off course. As we begin to read and apply God’s word our lives slowly we can get back on course.

The key is that we have to allow that process to happen. This takes humility. You and I have to begin by surrendering our way of doing and thinking to God’s way.

When building a home, the buildings use levels to be sure that the foundations and beams are set the way they need to so that the home will last. For you and me, the Bible is the level we must use to measure and adjust our lives to; if it doesn’t line up with the Bible, get rid of it.  And get back to Jesus.

PRAYER- Lord, I know that your ways are higher and truer than my own. I choose to surrender to your will and purpose. I commit to follow everything that you call me to within your word. If there’s any part of my life that is off course, speak to me and bring me close to you again. Amen

Have a great week!
