Friday's Dose - 18th January 2013

The Way We Think

Today's Scripture

"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." Romans 12:2 NLT

Thoughts for Today

Christians know that their salvation came through faith in Jesus Christ not through their good works (Galatians 2:16). However, after we become Christians, we often pick up the "I can do it myself" banner again. We usually have a desire to grow in a lifestyle that pleases God, but many of us try to do this on our own and remain frustrated with our performance.

Just as we were saved by faith in Christ not by our works we must trust God to transform us into a new person by changing the way we think. Real transformation can only come through his power. We cannot begin to please him without continuing in a walk of faith strengthening our relationship with him and trusting him to change us step-by-step into the person he has called us to be.

Consider this...

Have you slipped back into old habits that you have tried to change? Maybe you mean well, but you keep making the same mistakes over and over blurting out hurtful words losing your temper returning to substance abuse seeking out pornography Remember, you cannot bring about your own transformation. Focus on God. Spend time with him in prayer and in the Bible. Build your relationship with him and let him transform the way you think. Step-by-step you will learn to know his will for you and with his help you will grow in a lifestyle that pleases him.

Prayer : Our Loving Heavenly Father, Thank you for the gift of salvation through Jesus. I pray that the Holy Spirit will guide me and strengthen me in my walk with you. I pray that you will transform me into a new person by changing the way I think. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer.
Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Friday and God Bless you.
