All of us have things in our lives that keep us from the change God desires for us. Then how do we overcome these habits, addictions, thoughts, behaviors …?
We are transformed, changed when we ask God to help us know what is good, acceptable, and perfect in every situation we encounter. When He answers, and He will answer, we must follow through in obedience to His Word and His Will.
It’s all about grace! God wants us to come to Him in every situation that threatens to ruin us. He wants to guide us in all that is causing us to fall short. His grace, forgiveness, and never-ending love are ours. We only need to let Him in.
It’s all about grace! We’ve done nothing to deserve grace. He just gives it. It’s part of who He is.
Abba, Father, forgive us when we fall short. Give usstrength to make the changes You want. Shower us with Your grace!
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 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.Romans 12:1-2
Our bodies belong to God because He gave His body for us.
We must live a holy life that becomes an acceptable sacrifice to Him.
Conforming to the culture of the world is unexceptable to our Holy God.
God transforms us when we allow Him to change how we think.
God’s will for us is good, pleasing to both Him and those around us. He is perfecting us to approach His Throne in Heaven where we will see His perfect holiness.
