Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2
A transformed mind focuses on Jesus Christ as the sovereign Lord of all. There are many distractions, but truly one focus, Him! Being transformed results in a deep awe of God and His works. Surface shows, wearing masks – all gone. I am in awe of God.
Through His transforming work I become most able to know Him, resemble Him and enjoy Him. God has the right to do as He wishes around me, in me and for me. He doesn’t need to explain Himself. I can trust Him, not knowing, because I know Him.
The ultimate goal of all God does in and through me leads to one destination – fearing the Lord, loving Him, living for Him through my obedience.
Lord, thank you for loving me so much that You would transform me into Your likeness. Do what You desire to make me like You. Help me remember that all my happiness consists in loving You and being holy as You are.
