Essentially, there are two perspectives through which we can view every situation in life. One is the “heavenly”; the other is “worldly.”
Did you know that we have the power to transition our thinking out of the worldly perspective and into a heavenly one?
This isn’t always easy at first. It takes practice and commitment to change your default mindset. That’s why it is so critical to spend time in God’s Word daily, meditating on the truth it contains, rather than the facts of our current circumstances. We need to immerse our minds in His Word so we can quickly recall these principles during difficult moments or challenging seasons.
When we are fueled by God’s Word, our thoughts inevitably become governed by His truth, and this truth causes us to be internally transformed. It has an incredible effect on our actions and responses to people and circumstances. We begin to analyze situations from a heavenly perspective and react accordingly. It’s amazing what the appropriate response can do in a seemingly hopeless situation.
This is why the truth of God’s Word has the power to change the facts of our circumstances.
Do not conform 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. (Romans 12:2)
