Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. – Romans 12:2 NIV
Maybe you’re like me and thoughts run a mile a minute through your head about what needs to be done today, tomorrow, and ten years from now. Maybe you struggle with negative thinking about yourself. Maybe you’re focused on what everyone else is doing, leaving you depleted and envious.
Our thoughts are a very powerful guiding force in our lives. Where our mind goes, our actions will soon follow. When we lose control of our thoughts, we’re quick to get off track. This is why Romans 12:2 tells us: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
If you want to live the life God has purposed for you, then you must be diligent about guarding your thoughts. A renewed mind does not do the things of this world. A renewed mind transforms us out of harmful patterns and into a life that glorifies our God.
If you’ve found your thoughts spiraling out of control, I encourage you to take time today to pray, refocus, and renew your mind.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for all the good you’ve done for me. I pray for wisdom, discernment, and clarity of mind today to stay on your path. In Jesus Christ’s name, I pray. Amen.
