Do Not Conform
Scripture: Romans 12:  Do not conform any longer 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.
Observation: I’m always trying to conform to this world, or get someone else’s approval above God’s. I forget I don’t belong here and was created to live elsewhere, my home with God. I will never find God’s will if I keep looking away from Him.
Application: Be obedient to God and put His desires above mine. Search out the things He wants of me and strive to discover His will for my life. Live my life for Him and not me and my comfort and desires. Be the man God wants and no one else.
Prayer: Dear Lord I’m yours, use me as you desire. Help me focus on the things of you and not this world. Please give me the courage and wisdom to live this life for you.
