Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]. (Amplified)
Proverbs 23:4-5 Weary not yourself to be rich; cease from your own [human] wisdom. Will you set your eyes upon wealth, when [suddenly] it is gone? For riches certainly make themselves wings, like an eagle that flies toward the heavens. (Amplified)
Do you ever find yourself on autopilot? You go through each day doing what needs to be done. Sometimes you snatch a wise phrase here or there of God's Word, but not necessarily anything that deepens your relationship with God.
Our life gradually fills up with various demands and stresses. Unexpectedly, we find ourselves lashing out at those we love, or catch ourselves falling into sin we never imagined ourselves falling for. Whoa . . . !!!
In today's verses we are encouraged to be changed by the renewing of our mind! The only way to renew our mind is to refresh our mind in ?God's holy living Word. When you first wake up, say, "Hello," to God who has given you another glorious day!!!
Connect with Your Creator!!! He is just hanging out giving you rain, sunshine, a cool breeze, a great day fishing, or a soul-renewing hike--if you only clear your mind and see His Creation.
Open up His book and see what He has to say. Talk to Him on your commute to work, or when you're out enjoying what He has made for you!!!
When you realize you've been on autopilot . . . open up His manual and choose to let Him be your pilot!!!
Sportsmen's Tip of the Day
Don't approach your next hunt on autopilot:
Scout your area to see where the herd is running.
Keep your guns in good working order. After each firing, clean them thoroughly and regularly.
Make sure you site them in for accuracy.
Set aside time prior to the hunt for the special people in your life.
Invite those who are special to go with you, even if they just want to stay in camp while you hunt..
