|Why is it that we have such a strong desire to change, to improve, to become better? It’s because every Christian wants more than anything to experience God’s perfect will, His purpose and plan for their life.
I love the verse in Jeremiah 29:11 where God says, “I know the plans I have for you.” That’s how the New American Standard version reads. Yet, I noticed that in the New King James Version God says, “I know the thoughts I think towards you. Thoughts of peace not evil, to give you a future and a hope.” So I asked, “Lord is it thoughts or is it plans?” God said to me, “It’s not one or the other; it’s one that leads to the other.” God is trying to tell us that these 2 things go hand in hand. When we understand God’s thoughts, then we begin to experience God’s plan. It’s His thoughts that lead to His plans.
Your thought life is the gateway to your destiny. The main gateway into God’s plan for your life starts with God’s thoughts for your life, which are found in His Word. Renewing your mind to God’s way of thinking leads, guides and carries you into God’s plan.
Romans 12:2 says, “Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” To “be transformed,” describes what is done TO YOU. It literally means to be changed from the inside out. It is where we get the word metamorphosis from. When a caterpillar is transformed on the inside into a butterfly; it’s not something that the caterpillar does for himself. It is something that is DONE TO the caterpillar.
As Christians, we’re working so hard to change, yet God says this is not something done by you. It’s something that happens to you, it’s something that happens for you but it not something that happens by you. You can’t bring yourself in to God’s perfect plan for your life. Just do what the caterpillar does. He spins a cocoon and rests inside. The creator takes it from there. What is our cocoon? The Bible. Instead of striving to change, get in that cocoon. Change the way you think and this transformation will happen to you!
