Did you know your life can be totally transformed? God never intended for you to stay the same! Romans 12:2 says how: do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
We’re transformed or changed by the renewing of our minds. Our minds are like computers needing constant updates and virus removal in order to function properly. Over time we’ve all developed certain thought patterns, causing certain behaviors. Some can limit or even hurt us.
Renewing in the original language is the word we derive metamorphosis from. It’s used to describe the process of a caterpillar becoming a butterfly. It’s an incredible change! Caterpillars crawl around slowly with no clear direction, have a very limited perspective and are ‘attached’ to this earth. Plus they pull lots of ‘baggage’ everywhere they go. Contrast that with the butterfly which turned into something completely different: discovering new places, defying gravity and being what God designed it to be. That in essence paints the picture of the magnitude of change God desires you to experience. He wants you to get rid of the detrimental baggage you’ve been dragging along. He made a way for you to defy the ‘gravity’ of past hurts, failures, disappointments and opinions of the naysayers.
Here’s how you can make this work: read God’s Word every day. Download it into your heart which will cause your thinking to be renewed and it’ll get you in sync with God’s plan for your life: “that we may prove what is that good acceptable and perfect will of God.” Stop crawling, get “transmorphed” and discover God’s purpose for your life!
