Romans 12:2Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
These are words to those who want to be wise in the eyes of God. Those who are tired of the same cycle rolling over and over again in their mind and their lives.
Transform - metamorphoó in the greek, which means to be changed into another form. An example would be a caterpillar changing into a butterfly. Change that takes place from the inside out.
Which are you seeking from God in 2019? Change or comfort? God commands that you seek change which is a transformed mind through the Word of God.
Unfortunately, in our world today many are not seeking to be changed from the inside out, but instead, they are seeking temporary comfort from life’s hurtful and painful circumstances inwardly. They are tired of suffering and want temporary relief until the next trouble arises and then the cycle begins again.
Believe it or not, but, true transformation and healing is found alone in the Word of God as we allow it to change our mind from the way we think to the way God thinks, which in turns transforms the way we behave and live out our lives.
We are reminded in this text to think not as the world thinks but as God thinks. God’s thoughts and standards for life and living for the believer is found in His Holy Bible.
The good news about a changed or transformed mind is that even though you may still suffer, when you view your life’s situations through the lense of God’s Word, the pain is comforted and the mind is being renewed through the process.
When we are changed from the inside out, like the butterfly, our mind is transformed from that of a lowly self dependent one to one of high thoughts and expectations with impossible limitations with God through His Word and a personal relationship with Christ Jesus.
Apart from God you will remain crawling around on the ground seeking comfort, but with God you can, like the butterfly, fly to heights unimaginable spiritually and in all other areas of your life with the help of the Holy Spirit!
Be not conformed to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind because with God all things are possible!
Seeking change or comfort? Which describes you? I can only hope and pray that it is a “transformed mind”.
