Romans 12:2 NLT
2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
In this scripture, it briefly sums up what is right, and what the Lord our God in Christ requires of us. The love of God teaches us, in general, to live “godly, soberly, and righteously;” and to deny all that which is contrary hereunto.
Several of us would think that if we meet the requirements of Romans 12:1, then everything else would automatically work out. Paul went on to state that we must renew our minds. Many of us who have made actual commitments to the Lord, but have not renewed our minds through God’s Word, have experienced many problems. This scripture is telling us that we should be different from the unbelievers. Most of us, as Christians know this, but we seem at a loss as to how to achieve it. This verse goes on to give us the answer. The key is our minds.
At this moment, I let go of all thoughts and concerns to receive your blessings.
At this moment, I let go of all chaos to receive your love and peace.
At this moment, I let go of fear so that in fear’s place I may receive courage.
At this moment, I let go of problems and challenges to receive your command.
At this moment, I let go and trust you to help me to overcome my trials and tribulation.
I gratefully receive this gift of letting go and letting you lead me and guide me.
