Why is it that we all have such a strong desire to change, to improve, to become better? It’s because every Christian wants more than anything to experience God’s perfect will, His purpose, and His plan for their life.
I love the verse in Jeremiah 29:11, where God says, “I know the THOUGHTS I think toward you. Thoughts of peace, not evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (NKJV). Yet, I noticed that in the New International Version, God says, “I know the PLANS I have for you…plans to prosper you...” One version uses "THOUGHTS," while the other uses "PLANS." So I asked, "Lord, is it thoughts or is it plans?" And I believe God spoke to me and said, "It's not one or the other; it's one that leads to the other. It's My thoughts that lead to My plans." God is trying to tell us that these two things go hand in hand. When we understand God's thoughts, then we begin to experience God's plan. It's His thoughts that lead to His plan and purpose for our lives.
You see your thought life is the gateway to your destiny. The main gateway to God's plan for your life starts with God's thoughts for your life, which are found in His Word. Renewing your mind to God’s way of thinking leads, guides, and carries you into God’s plan.
So, join me on the amazing journey of transformation through the renewing of your mind; and instead of trying to find the perfect will of God, expect the perfect will of God to find YOU!
