The Lord gave me this well-known scripture that we all know by heart and we quote it frequently with other believers, but the Lord opened this scripture in a deeper and a more powerful way to understand.
When we look at being conformed to this world, we see the pattern of a world is to deceive, to bring destruction and to destroy through ways of more power. We sit in our churches and have conformed to the world and have no impact on people’s lives because we follow the same pattern and we don’t even realise it.
But to be transformed, the example that pastor’s or teachers always use is the metamorphosis of a butterfly. The end result of this metamorphosis is completely different then what it was or how it started. The Lord showed me the movie called transformers whereby a truck sense danger and transform into this robot that has super powers. Because of his programming it transformed into this powerful weapon that is always ready for battle.
Then the word said, “but be transformed by the renewing your mind”, you are transforming into the image of Christ that will give you supernatural power to operate through His Holy Spirit. Total transformation start in the mind, when our thought pattern are change, our beliefs are changed and our life is changed. Our thoughts determine our actions, we have the power within us. Renewing of the mind is not a once-off, it’s a continual experience. “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come”. 2 Corinthians 5:17.
“That you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” You will only experience the perfect will of God when you give full control over to the Lord. Only then can the perfect will of God be seen in our lives. “He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit” Titus 3:5.
Prayer: Lord renew my mind daily, create in me a clean heart, O God and renew a steadfast spirit within me in Jesus name Amen.
