Manna For Today: Wednesday, March 16, 2016
Romans 12:2 – 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.
Rick Warren says, “Whatever gets your attention gets you.” I agree with that idea; we become what we focus on. That’s why God is urging us to change our focus through mind-renewing.
God wants us to have a new mind or way of thinking which would give us new focus, enabling us to embody our new focus. How easy it is to fall into the faulty thinking pattern of things that won’t help you like, worry, fear, concern about what others think, etc.
In some instances, we will need to re-parent ourselves to unlearn negative thought-patterns we picked up growing up. Not only do we become what we focus on but we also become like those we spend the most time with.
God has, in His infinite wisdom, given us an opportunity to partner with Him in designing our lives. Go to God today and ask for and receive from Him changes you need to make in your relationships and other critical areas of your life. Then ask Him for the courage to make those changes.
Peace and blessings!
