Hey guys, My name is Evan and I’m from TCS Strathalbyn.
Romans 12:2 (NIV)
2 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.
Have you ever seen a gap somewhere? Maybe in your school, work place, home you feel like there is something missing. Maybe you notice that there is improvement to be made, then maybe you figure out what will fix this void. This is a radical idea, something that no one else has done before that will change everything around it is a radical idea. You see sometimes God gives us ideas that we may dismiss as random thoughts but if it is from God then it is a gift that you should not keep in your own head but we should turn that idea into a physical movement. When we are given an idea from God it is for the purpose that we create the idea.
In Romans 12:2 it says “but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” After the Holy Spirit transforms our mind we can then discern what is and what is not good and pleasing to the Lord. I often second guess if a thought or idea of mine is from God or just something that I created in my strange brain. But when I renew my mind, pray and spend time with God, God helps me discern if it was for the Lord or not.
Lord, I thank you that your will is perfect. God I ask that you can help me to not conform to the pattern of this world but let my mind be transformed by the Holy Spirit. I pray that you can use me to carry out your will God. I pray for guidance and discernment whenever I have an idea. I ask that you will give me strength and courage to execute the idea that you have gifted me.
