Scripture - "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:2 (NASB)
Prompt: The promises of politicians have always been lofty. Whether at the local, state or national level, the promises of sweeping reform and a betterment of society and life as you know it is promised. In theory people aren't voting for what's currently happening, people are voting for what they perceive the future to hold if their candidate is elected or not elected. We long for transformation.
Scripture paints a different picture of what it looks like to be truly transformed. True transformation comes from the renewing of your mind and I'd suggest to you today that the renewing of your mind starts with prayer. Prayer for God to reveal His plan for your future. Prayer for God to chisel out of us those parts that aren't pleasing to Him. Prayer for God to give us His eyes and ears as we interact with those around us. I challenge you today to put your complete and total trust not in a particular candidate but in the process of renewal that God maps out for us in His Word.
Be encouraged and keep moving forward.
