Daily Meditations – Wednesday, July 31, 2013

Romans 12:2 – And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.

That word transformed is translated from the Greek word from which we get the term “metamorphosis.” It’s used in Scripture in two other places – when Jesus was transfigured on the Mount as He spoke with Moses and Elijah – and in 2 Corinthians 3:18. It says, “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”

Changed, transformed, transfigured! Those are powerful, exciting words, and they describe what will happen to us as we spend time beholding the Lord in the Word and in prayer. As we spend time renewing our mind, our outer being will be transformed in much the same way as a caterpillar is changed into a butterfly.

AFFIRMATIONS:

Instead of conforming to the image of the world, I begin to conform to the image of the reborn spirit with in me which is created in righteousness and true holiness.

I prefer time in the word of God to communion with the world because God is doing a new thing in me.

Proverbs 29:18 – Where there is no vision, the people perish.

Vision makes suffering and disappointment bearable. Vision generates hope in the midst of despair and provides endurance in tribulation. Vision inspires the depressed and motivates the discouraged. Without vision, life would be a study in cyclic frustration within a whirlwind of despair. Vision is the foundation of courage and the fuel of persistence.

AFFIRMATIONS:

I make a quality decision to reconnect with my passion.

I see beyond my eyes live for the unseen.

My vision determines my destiny.

My future is not ahead of me – it lies within me.
