“Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.”Ephesians 4:23
Once again, we turn to the power of the Holy Spirit for renewal. Many of us struggle with the same particular issue over and over. One of my main issues is the idea of portion control, especially when I haven’t planned well. Now, I can say the words “well, tomorrow is a new day and I’LL TRY HARDER.” OR I can say “tomorrow is a new day and SPIRIT, TAKE CONTROL!”
This second approach is the life that Jesus wants us to live. The first way we’ve tried. Time and time again, this has failed. Even with great support. Even with the best systems and best programs. We need an INNER TRANSFORMATION if we want to have any sort of OUTER TRANSFORMATION . Allowing the Spirit to “renew our thoughts and attitudes” regarding our schedules and food will make all the difference. Make God bless our efforts as we give up control and surrender to His will in our lives.
