Last night I was suddenly awakened with a phrase going through my mind as a declaration. The words were,
“Where Satan has tried to conform you to the world, God is about to transform you by His Spirit.”
This naturally brought my mind to the verse in Romans 12:2 that says,
“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.”
As this supernatural work occurs you will be able to walk in the wisdom of knowing His perfect will and Word.
Today, invite the Spirit of the Lord to transform every part of your life and mind that has been conformed to the patterns of this world. The patterns of the world cloud discernment, judgement and understanding. The renewing of our minds bring us into clarity and wisdom.
I come into agreement with the prayers of Jesus right now that you and your loved ones will be transformed; having your minds renewed. I declare with you that every place that has been conformed to the patterns of this world are now transformed by the power of His Spirit and the washing of His Word.
We do not belong to the world any longer (John 17:16) but are now citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven (Philippians 3:20). He will transform us to the patterns of His Kingdom and to the ways of our King.
The Lord led me to read out of 1 Kings 18. This chapter tells the story of when the prophets of Baal challenged Elijah as to "who is God?"; Baal or the God of Elijah. They both set up offerings and then called on their Gods to send fire upon the altar.
As I recounted how Elijah made his altar impossible to be consumed by fire (by pouring water on it, putting water trenches around it, etc) I thought of all the "impossibilities" that are even now upon many of the lives of God's people. Maybe we are in a time that God will prove Himself to every false god and false prophet.
The prophets of Baal shouted to their god, they cut themselves until blood gushed out, they pounded their chests and yet their god did nothing. But Elijah drenched his offering with water and then prayed this prayer,
"O LORD, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, prove today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant. Prove that I have done all this at your command. O LORD, answer me! Answer me so these people will know that you, O LORD, are God and that you have brought them back to yourself.”
Then after his prayer, fire fell and consumed his offering
