Transformation is not easy no matter how hard you try. Your will can be strong, but your mind must be stronger. Change begins in your mind.
What are a few things you’ve tried to change lately? How easy did it come for you allowing yourself to continually utilize the change?

Every once in a while, the urge hits us. I need to change this.
So you begin the process of making some changes to what you would like to see happen.And then life happens! It’s back to what you know and you accept it, maybe with a little rebellious play.
Why can’t change stick with just a few tweaks?
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” ~ Romans 12:2
You can’t change things until you change your mind. That means your thoughts must change.
Change cannot happen when you conform to the patterns of this world. Those temptations are too great to resist.
So how do you really make a change that’s greater than the patterns of this world?
For one, you must decide and make a commitment that you’re worth the change.
God knows that you are. Do you?
Do you honestly believe that you are worth the change and all the mess you will encounter to get to your end goal?
You must believe!
When your belief is greater than your mess, change can occur.
“God can change your heart, but you must change your mind!”
The K.I.S.S. ~ Change your mind!
Once when you embrace your own worth and see how wonderfully and fearfully God made you, change is possible!
The value that you place on the patterns of this world will melt away slowly. Because you begin to see and understand from a heavenly perspective.
We went to the zoo a few days ago. You know those binoculars they have anchored throughout the zoo allowing you to view the animals much closer.
That’s the perspective you want for your life…the heavenly binoculars (the things that draw you closer to God) that focus on what you can’t see because you’re too focus on the patterns of the world.
You want to be able to zoom in so you can change your mind.
All throughout your life, you have been creating neural pathways that say, “I need to do this because…”
The crazy thing is, is that you don’t even stop long enough to comprehend what you do to have it make sense in why you do it.
You have the mind of Christ. (1 Corinthians 2:16)
So let’s break it down on how you change your mind with those heavenly binoculars.
- Evaluate why you do what you do. Stop just going through the motions. Ask yourself why you are doing what you’re doing.
- Discover a deeper motivation for what you do. These are your motives. These are like your hidden secrets. They aren’t something you consciously think about when you are in motion. What are my motives for what I have been doing? And what are my motives for what I need to be doing?
- Create accountability for yourself. Surround yourself with a network of people that support you. You want to choose people who will come beside you in your efforts to change your mind.
“Let God change your heart. You change your mind!”
