“…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 (NKJV)

Do you know why God gave us His word? It is not just for us to hear it and feel good about it, No! It’s beyond that. He gave us His word because it is for our growth, development and progress in life both spiritually, physically and morally. In other words, the word serves as an important tool in our overall development and success as Christians. If we can take advantage of it and apply it to our everyday circumstances, it can make us masters in life and victors over the situations of life. So it’s important that you take God’s word seriously and begin to train yourself with it. The word of God communicates a mind-set, an attitude and a character that we should possess in all things. It gives us a direction in which we ought to follow and it lets us know the principles we ought to operate on to lead a successful life. Without the word, we can’t really live that life of excellence that God wants us to live. Without the word, we can’t really live to our full potentials, therefore, it is important that we take God’s word seriously and train ourselves with it. Let it count in your day to day activities and most importantly, let it form your opinion about life and be your perspective in doing things. When, we train ourselves with the word of God, it becomes the foundation upon which our life is laid and not only so, it becomes the principles in which live by.

So as you carry on in your Christian walk, let this mind be in you. Do not only hear the word in Church, or study it, train yourself with it. In our opening text, the bible clearly says “…do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind…” Romans 12:2 (NKJV). You know why? So that you will not go in the ways of the world but in the ways of God’s word. So start now and start early. When you go through the word, learn from it and use it to upgrade your thinking and your attitude. Praise God!


God’s word was given to us for our growth, development and progress, so take advantage of it!


Father, I thank you for giving me your word to guide me and show me the path to follow. Therefore, I declare that I am using your word to my advantage and upgrading my life with it in the name of Jesus. Amen!
