Life is filled with changes. We live our lives in stages. From childhood to youth, to young adulthood, to middle age, to senior status, life is all about changes.
Changes aren’t always easy. Especially if we are unprepared for them, or resistant to them. Yet change is essential for growth. It’s part of maturing.
Change is a big part of our spiritual lives too. God is continually calling and challenging us to make the right changes in the way we think and live. He wants to move us forward into greater maturity and responsibility, which requires leaving old things behind.
The truth is we’re always changing—for better or worse. The choice is ours.
The right choice is to change for the better. The key to this kind of change involves our attitudes and mindset. Changing your thinking for the better is actually how you change your life for the better.
Take a look at this familiar verse from Romans 12:2 (GW) “Don’t become like the people of this world. Instead, change the way you think. Then you will always be able to determine what God really wants—what is good, pleasing, and perfect.”
In what ways is your mind stuck in a rut? What thoughts are holding you back from the life God planned for you? How has worldly thinking infiltrated your mind and restricted you from loving and serving God and others to your fullest potential?
Choose to change your thinking. God will show you how, and He’ll help you do it!
