"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." Romans 12: 2 (NJKV)
Bible Readings: Job 14: 14, Colossians 3: 1-3, Genesis 41: 46, Ephesians 4: 21-22, Habakkuk 2: 3, Ezekiel 47, Job 42, Psalms 30: 5, Exodus 19: 4-5, Colossians 3: 5, Psalms 29: 10, Isaiah 41, Psalms 144: 7-9.
If you want to shift, you must not fit in. You will not conform to what is happening in the world. If you want to go higher, don't care about conformity but transformity. Don't care about the world system.
When you are conformed, your life becomes deformed because you become grounded. Just because you are on the same level now doesn't mean you are meant for the same place. You mind has to be renewed for you to shift.
Transformation is also shift. How do you shift? You do this by renewing your mind.
You are the only one with the power to reset. For 2017 we have passed the middle. Once you've passed the date (as a clock) you have been reset. Things have been reset to be a brand new day. There is a shift in the timing of your destiny. You are being given a fresh start, a new beginning and a brand new name. For some, the day is over but for some the time has arrived. You are being shifted to a place where you finish strong and great.
Are you content or will you say there is something more? The position you shift in is about the wind. If he has done it before he will do it again. Only God has the final say. Heaven moves you from your strength to God's place, from your mind to God's glory.
For you to get to this place you have to line up. You have to renew your mind: your mind is new with a capacity to rewind and shift it one more time. To renew your mind you have to shed some of the weight you have carried so you can run your race with endurance. Stop trying to conform you do not belong to the same class. Stop looking in and start looking up. Your mind has to shed off bitterness, unforgiveness, malice so you can shift.
You have to stop equating yourself with people. God is bringing you to an expected end. The expectation of your expected end is about to rise up. You do not belong at the bottom you belong at the top! As long as you continue to look up you can never go down.
Stop looking at your connections. There is a supernatural shift that will take over your life.
