Romans 12:2, AMP “Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind…”
The primary purpose of the Word of God, the Bible, is to change the way we think about ourselves, about others, about issues of life, and about God. The reason why many people today are not happy, the reason they are not enjoying life is simply because they have trained their minds to think and dwell on the wrong things. They have trained their minds to worry, to be anxious, and to be fearful. They have trained their minds to complain. They have trained their minds to blame others for their mistakes and situations. They have trained their minds to see the negative in everything. They have not trained their minds to see things from God’s perspective. The truth is that just as we can form these negative mindsets, we can retrain our minds and form positive mindsets. This transformation can happen as we renew our minds to the Word of God and develop positive attitudes. This does not happen instantly. You have to make a conscious effort every single day until a good habit is formed. I encourage you today to choose to live a life of a positive attitude of faith, gratitude, praise, thanksgiving, forgiveness, love, joy, self-control, long suffering, contentment, gentleness, obedience, and humility, based on the solid foundation of God’s Word.
