The Weekly Word - A Devotion for the Week of August 29
“Let God transform you.” Think about that word “let” – it implies a relinquishing of control, a handing over of ourselves and our lives to God. We resist that, don’t we? We often don’t let God transform us because we are afraid; we are unwilling to trust Him with our whole being and lives. Yet letting God in, allowing Him to transform us and change the way we think, is the key, Paul tells us, to understanding His will for us. Surrender precedes transformation. If you desire to be changed from the inside out, you must first surrender to God.
