Change Begins In The Mind

by Hazel Straub

It all begins with the mind. As a man thinks, so is he. Whatever thoughts you dwell and meditate upon is what you become. Focus your mind on God, not your struggles and change will manifest from your inside to the outside of you.

Cry out to God and ask him for help! He hears and answers.

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. (Romans 12:1-2 MSG)

  3. I never read this in the message version. I agree with their interpretation of the word of God because it looks just how they described. Replace the cares of the world with the cares of God. Give unto God the gifts he has given unto you. Oh Abba, you are the best! You are everything.
