Romans 12, Exodus 4-6:12

Romans 12:2 – Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Lord God, as I walk through this day so many of thoughts, words, and actions happen by habit.  Habitually I think, I act, and I respond.  It’s thoughtless really. And that’s okay when my automatic response is good and matches your will and what is good.  But so many of my gut reactions are not where they should be nor do they reflect your will or what is good.  Lord God, I pray, transform me from the inside.  Transform my heart and my mind, my will and my desires, that I might test my responses and check them against what you say is good and pleasing.  Change me and so change my habits so that my responses more and more reflect you.  You, Lord God, have chosen me great mercy and kindness.  Don’t give up on me.  Transform me daily and conform me to your good ways. Amen.
