Romans 12:1-3 (KJV)
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
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.
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Paul is writing to the Romans about pleasing God because of his mercies. Offering your ordinary, everyday life to God. That means everything you do, your waking up, your breakfast, dinner, and supper (also those other snacks you will not confess to), your time of work or retirement, every step that you take offer it to the Lord, and even the laying down at night to sleep. Stay focused on the Lord. When you go about your daily activities do not conform or adapt to the way the world thinks about the way you should conduct yourself. Renew your mind daily with the word, focus your attention on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will know what the Lord wants and be willing to follow through. When you focus on the immaturity of the world you will spin in your tracks, but the Lord will bring the best out of you and develop you. The Message Bible makes this statement, “The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us, not by what we are and what we do for him.” We are living in the pure grace of the Lord. Separating yourself from the world is an act of courage to walk a path that is not readily hewed for travel. It is an adventure of faith, trusting the Lord with every aspect of your life from the time you wake up until the time you wake up again. The blessings flow to give you the strength to make each step. Receive your blessings today because the next step could place you in the answer you have been waiting for.
