change rocks our world [+] Friday E-Devotion

Psalm 73:3,13,16-17 (nlt) --- For I envied the proud when I saw them prosper despite their wickedness...Did I keep my heart pure for nothing?  Did I keep myself innocent for no reason?...So I tried to understand why the wicked prosper.  But what a difficult task it is!  Then I went into your sanctuary, O God, and I finally understood the destiny of the wicked.
We look at things in the wrong way most of the time unless we are so tightly connected to God.  Writing this Psalm is David.  He was the epitome of a God-seeker.  Yet this dude also committed adultery, had the ladies husband killed, had troubled kids, dancing almost naked in public and was pretty much a child prodigy that his father and brothers forgot about.  That is David.
I like that scripture and simply today I ask you to ask yourself the question that I am dealing with this morning: am I allowing God to transform my my mind?  That leads me further to think and question.  Is the way I love people really loving people and loving God.  Not easy and pretty tough to hear.
Isaiah 55:8-9 (nlt) --- "My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts," says the Lord. "And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.
Romans 12:2 (nasb) --- And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
Not sure about you, but I desire to live and breathe and share the authentic love of God.  That rocks my world.  The change rocks our world!  Let it.
