While out walking this afternoon I was fortunate enough to see a couple of butterflies (I think they were Peacock butterflies) and they were stunningly beautiful.
Their wings seemed to glisten and shimmer in the sun, and the different colours on their wings were wonderful.
I though how beautiful they were, and my mind was then drawn back to the DIG yesterday.
This butterfly used to be a caterpillar but then through the process of metamorphosis it was changed, or transformed, to its winged version.
So instead of a caterpillar foraging on the ground munching on leaves it became a butterfly free to fly wherever it wanted sipping on the abundance that is sweet nectar.
What a marvellous picture of what can happen to us if we renew our minds through the Word of God.
We may have areas of our lives that are not very pretty at the moment, but if we were to be transformed we could end up soaring and flying, becoming beautiful in that area.
Transformation comes as we renew our mind through the Word of God (Romans 12 v 2).
For every dark and ugly situation in our lives at the moment we can find something in the Word that will renew our mind and see us transformed.
Ugly and horrid situations can be transformed into something of beauty, something of abundance, something that will glorify God.
Don’t give up today, whatever situation you find yourself in.
Instead of this, find the truth in the Word of God and renew your mind; be transformed.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for your Word, and thank you that I can renew my mind”.
Romans 12 v 2…..And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God
