Let God Transform You

Scripture: Romans 12:2 NLT

Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

The "behaviors and customs of this world" (or "this age" in the HCSB) exist in the Body of Christ as well as out of it. There is much I've been taught that has calcified my relationship with God, and bound His ability to really connect with me and change me.

Application:I'm eager to continue discovering more and more liberty and intimacy in my closeness to my God, and to turn my mind toward Him--to eagerly await the changes He will work in me, as I learn to rest in Him.

Prayer:God, please give me discernment. Open my eyes and heart to understand what to search for, and how to think, so I might draw ever closer to Thee. I want to walk in Your way, and be filled with Your love--both so wildly different than the imaginations of men.
