Many of us want to move forward into the new things that God has for us, but the more time goes by, the easier it is to feel like we’re just waiting on God. The waiting period can be a time of preparation and transformation so when those new opportunities come we have the right mindset. The best way to transform and renew our mind is to study God’s Word.

see we justified in our spirit but we have to be sanctified in our minds that means we have to set our mind apart from the all way of doing and they and we have to get in god's way of doing and be you see if we want to know god's will we're gonna have to know gods way now he was telling them don't be conformed to bobby transform i need to say and this is a process don't down on yourself it's a process he went on to say this he says do not become form to this world but be true form by the renewal of your mind that by testing may be to discern the will of god for your life what is pleasing right an haven't you other illegal for your life i want another villa guide for my life i want to know the will of god for my life in god is saying through this tree for
through this new way of thinking you can take all these choices and you can put them under the scrutiny of what you know you can tested in sea shall i make it our shall i not charlotte is it or shall i go the other way so you can play choices you make every day under the scrutiny of the word of god he got wants us to walk in confidence before him he wants us to know what are you we live we'll know what way to go it's kind like taking a test have you ever gone when you're in school to take a test for your job the better you but the material the more competent you were a more there's you got right it's like that not saying this transformation comes little by little but keep gaining knowledge keep testing your choices but what you now to be right you don't we choices every single day
and those choices make us so it so important that we put our choices under the hides a thirty now you know sometimes we want to put every choice and regards at the worthy because some choices we just what they look so god i can fix this with you later let me go ahead and make this choice you know what an end and god knows that i mean we ve all been there we ve all done that in the good thing about god he can take our bad choices and bring him gloria us good our i began he's a good guy anymore and i love the fact that he's not judging as the point is that
we need not be afraid to take our attitudes are unforgivingness our habits everything about us and put it under the submission of guy see paul will soon be a living sacrifices for how we started that be a living sacrifice what he was saying he was gonna go all in all don't hold back certain areas of your life you have a bad habit put it under guy the authority hold on to it i got i'll fix it as soon as outbreaks come over here and give it to you gotta say get it all to me the good the ban the ugly put it under my words clemming those things off of your lie see jesus came as the living world the bible says pain as the word made incarnate man made flesh and he walked among them and did you know that when you read the word of god you get good eighteen you're walking with jesus
still doing what he did those days in the bible he still healing he's still delivering he's second brain he's still restoring take you can and put all of it under his authority we can't be afraid you listen you know we have big decisions that we have to make an hour i have heard people say i want to know the will of god should i take this job should start this business should i go back to college is this the personal mary and those are all very important decisions but we need to put every decision under the oh god because the better choices we make the closer we are to those better decisions on those big issues of our life when i was a young girl i remember my heart i was just say i would just say to guide god when i get married some day all i know is this i want a man who loves you more than i do

judge man who i was gonna marry by the word of god although he looked good here to have the right credentials you know that good enough i watched a study i saw if his beliefs lined up with his actions i watch how we treated his family what are you said about his friends his generosity towards others see our lead that character line itself up with the word of god we could make an educated bodily decision you think god wants us to be competent decisions as our minds are gaining more knowledge and being transformed then we can test our choices and make the right decisions will i had the peace he asked me to marry so i did thirty years later it's been a wonderful decision it's been a great decision can i tell you girls
judge from the outside make sure their character lines up you're far too valuable to get together with someone who doesn't appreciate you and know how to bring out the best thing you who doesn't serve the living guy you see i made my decision i'd rather be home with a pin but our jelly salvage then with a man wasn't good enough for me in god every decision you may use the word of god is your goal standard he conforming to gods word in his likeness do don't conform to the world don't conform to have it you may be fighting something right now and i just want to encourage to get yourself submit yourself under the word of god dont let anything come out of your mouth it doesn't line up with what you want listen when you're in a fight you gotta fight today
