Renewed for His Good Works

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that he may prove what is that good , and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (ROM. 12:2)

Time and time again, I have wondered how I could be of service to Christ and those who seek more than to settle for less of what this world gives us to mariante our minds on. Not less as in material things and keeping up with the Jones’s way of thinking. Haven’t you heard that our treasures are best kept in heaven anyway?  A more positive way of thinking. Not even throwing the Bible at people all the time. 

While studying this, I’m so deep in thought. Asking questions out loud and the holy Spirit providing me with answers in a still quiet voice. How can we be of service if we are more worried about what we would have to lose. I’ve sat in pure quietness lately and have meditated on only the things of God. No politics, no religion…Just God! My mind constantly thought on these things…

Things like love, kindness, long-sufferimg and all the things that builds others up. And encouragement along with patience and having a heart after God. I’ve been so mind blown for the past few weeks at how through my readings, prayers/mediation, at how God responds in such an openly way and gives assignments to us that will cause others to be lead to him (to Christ).

Especially in my own trials, I’m being taught to love even still. All the setbacks, disappointments, and feelings of not being needed has been washed away and I can truly see how God has been using me for His good works. All it takes is daily renewal of the mind. 

He wishes for us to be renewed for His good works to be a blessing in the midst of others storm. 

Renew your mind each and everyday!

His Will Be Done

Have you ever just stopped for a moment in life and asked, “What does God, my Creator, have planned for me?”  I admit that at times I feel lost, but more than likely I’m doing things according to my own will while attempting to make great plans for my life. I fail so many times.  So, I’ve asked that question quite often lately.

I’ve come to know this…

God expects us to always allow His will to be done as He knows what’s best for our lives. There may have been so many times where a situation looked bad; but, by allowing His will to be done, all things turned out better than anyone could have imagined. One might say, “His Will be done” and “His Plan accepted.”

Just a simple reminder…

If we find ourselves living each day according to our own will, it’s time to stop! It’s okay to make plans. However, plans are best kept in order with God at the forefront as we allow His will to continuously be done.
