Be Transformed

Today’s Scripture


"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, NIV)

In the original Bible language, the word “transform” is "metamorpho." It’s where we get our word “metamorphose.” When a caterpillar changes from a little worm-like larva into a beautiful butterfly, it is called metamorphosis. The caterpillar starts out as possibly one of the most unattractive insects. It’s very plain, nothing special about it. But God destined the caterpillar to go through a transformation. It goes from being one of the most ordinary creatures to one of the most beautiful, colorful and graceful. Instead of having to crawl on the ground, it can now fly to wherever it wants to go.

Paul is saying that if you’ll get your thoughts going in the right direction and not dwell on negative, condemning, “not able to” thoughts, and program your mind with what God says about you, then a transformation will take place. The only way to release your butterfly is to get your thinking in line with God’s Word. If you will keep renewing your mind and agreeing with what God says about you, it’s just a matter of time before that transformed person comes out. When your thoughts are better, your life will be better.

A Prayer for Today

"Father, thank You for the work You are doing in my life. I surrender every part of my being to You. Thank You for transforming me as I keep my heart and mind stayed on You in Jesus’ name. Amen."

Blessed Wherever You Go

Today’s Scripture

"If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands…you will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country..." (Deuteronomy 28:1-3, NIV)

Do you want to experience more of God's blessing in your life? Living in obedience and integrity is the key that unlocks the door to His abundance. When you put God first place in your life, you'll be blessed in the city and in the country—you'll be blessed wherever you go! Deuteronomy 28 goes on to say that you will be so blessed that you will lend and not borrow. Can you see yourself in that position? Can you see yourself living in that kind of abundance? God doesn't want you to be living with a barely-get-by attitude. We don't serve a barely-get-by God; our God is more than enough! He wants you to have more than enough to meet your needs and be a blessing to the people around you. Today, make room in your life for the blessing of God. Choose to live in obedience to His Word and be blessed wherever you go!

A Prayer for Today

"Father, thank You for Your hand of blessing on my life. I choose today to put You first in everything I do. Help me to walk in integrity and follow Your commands so that I can honor You always. In Jesus' Name. Amen."

When God Crosses Over

Today's Scripture

“But recognize today that the LORD your God is the one who will cross over ahead of you like a devouring fire to destroy them. He will subdue them so that you will quickly conquer them and drive them out, just as the LORD has promised.” Deuteronomy 9:3, NLT


In Deuteronomy 9, the Israelites were facing enemy nations that were much stronger and more powerful than them with fortified cities and descendants of the famous Anakite giants. You can imagine how intimidated they must have felt, but armed with God’s promise, they had the boldness to go into the Promised Land.

You may be facing a situation that seems impossible—the sickness, the financial difficulty, the setback in your career. God is saying to you what He said to them, “You’re not fighting the battle on your own. I’m going to take care of those enemies so you can quickly conquer them.” The Most High God is going before you. Behind the scenes right now, God is changing things in your favor. He’s crossing over ahead of you, taking care of the sickness, taking care of the trouble. God has these destiny moments where He’s going to quickly change things, quickly promote you, quickly vindicate you, quickly heal you. You’re going to overcome that challenge quicker than you think.

A Prayer for Today

“Father, thank You for the great promise that You are crossing over before me to subdue obstacles that seem impossible. Thank You that I can have the boldness to move forward and conquer. I believe that my times are in Your hands, and You are about to quickly change things in my favor. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

Good to All

Today's Scripture

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:10, NIV


Jesus said that people will know true believers by our love for others, not by how many Scriptures we quote or the Christian bumper stickers on our car. This world does not need to hear another sermon nearly as much as it needs to see us being good to people—helping others, meeting needs, and blessing them with our words and actions. We were created to make a difference in the lives of others through our love for them. True love is seen in our actions—giving our time, our money, an encouraging word. When you show love, you are showing God to the world. You’re never more like God than when you take time to do something for someone else.

People are watching you, and one of the best witnesses you can have is simply by being good to people. The Scripture says to be on the lookout for those you can bless. Don’t miss the miracle of the moment to do good whenever situations cross your path to bless people.

A Prayer for Today

“Father, thank You for all You have done in my life and for every opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. Help me to be more aware of the people and needs around me and to love others as You have loved me. I want to be a blessing and a testimony of Your goodness. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

When You Praise

Today's Scripture

Let the high praises of God be in their mouth… Psalm 149:6, NKJV

David showed us that sometimes all you need to defeat the enemy is a small stone. The same is true of praise; sometimes all you need is your praise. Praise is a weapon. All through Scripture, you see how praise breaks chains, praise confuses the enemy, and praise makes you powerful. When you have praise coming out of your mouth, you are unstoppable. The enemy cannot keep a praiser down. Just think of Paul and Silas in Acts 16. As they sang praises at midnight, prison doors flung open and shackles fell off.

Your praise may not seem like much, but when you praise, angels go to work. When you praise, the Creator of the universe begins to change things in your favor. Most of the battles we fight are not physical; they’re spiritual. Praise is a powerful weapon. When you praise in the time of trouble, it’s even more effective, because the enemy expects you to be negative and complaining. Praise will cause you to defeat giants in your life.

A Prayer for Today

“Father, thank You that You are worthy of my highest praise and that You inhabit my praise. Thank You that You reign over all the circumstances of my life and that You are with me. As long as I have breath, I will praise You and believe You are defeating the giants in my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
