John 10:10 says: “The thief (Satan) does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus) have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
To live a God-centered life you must always focus your life on God’s purposes and not on your own plans. You must seek God in your decision-making and in your circumstances rather than your distorted worldly outlook.
When God starts to do something in the world, He takes the initiative to reveal His will to people. For some divine reason He has chosen to involve His people in accomplishing His purposes.
Romans 8:28 says: “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” We all need a transformation from worldly living to Godly living serving God instead of serving our own pleasures in life. We need to adjust our lives to God, so He will work through us what He wants to accomplish.
God is not our servant, we are His servants so we need to adjust our lives to what He is about to do. If we do not submit to God He will allow us to follow our own way to find soon we are going the wrong way…we need to be transformed to His ways not ours.
Romans 12:1-2 says: “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
Transforming your mind, renewing your mind comes from the Bible—so open it and enjoy what God’s Word says. If you don’t know God personally ask Him to save you, get into a Bible preaching, Bible teaching church. If you don’t have a church you are welcomed to come to New Beginning Church on Dobyns Rd., seven miles out of Stuart.
Until next time “be blessed” and remember Jesus loves you.
