Day 2: The Metamorphosis of the Mind
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.Romans 12:2 (KJV)
Reflection: The world is eager to shape us in its mold, but God desires a different transformation for us—one that starts with our minds. When we allow God to renew our minds, our values, desires, and actions start to align with His will. This transformative process is how we discover and live out God’s good, acceptable, and perfect will.
Illustration: Think about your smartphone. Every so often, it needs an update to function better. Neglecting these updates can make the phone slow, buggy, and vulnerable to threats. Likewise, neglecting to renew our minds makes us susceptible to worldly influences, leading us away from God’s will.
Prayer: Father, renew my mind and transform me from the inside out. I want to be aligned with Your will, rejecting the pull of worldly influences. Amen.
