TODAY’S DEVOTION. PROSPERITY FROM THE USUAL!
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE. “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind…” (Romans 12:2 NIV)
Are there certain habits in your life that you are unable or unwilling to change? Do they seem beyond your ability to do anything about? You might even see yourself walking in the same path of a parent or grandparent and realize it runs generations deep. You may have wondered how you will ever be able to overcome these odds? The scriptures give us a clue as to how to answer that in Romans 12:2 where Paul wrote, “Do not be conformed any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
Being conformed to a pattern sounds a lot like being in a usual pattern. We all have usual limits we run in. Paul suggests that the way to a new path is through renewing our minds. This makes sense when you realize that the patterns we run in are fueled largely by our thinking. We have these old tapes that play repeatedly in our head.
They tell us we cannot change,we are not loved, or such and such has too much power over us, or it will cost too much in personal investment to change. We might have tried to change by making different choices. By renewing our minds, we remind ourselves that there are new tapes where we are concerned, played by the Holy Spirit and power is available for change through His presence in our lives.
I renew my mind from every thought of inadequacy and declare that I am prosperous in all my ways in the name of Jesus. Amen
