Pursuing Your Renewing — The people of God tend to be tempted with the urge to handle their challenges in their own strength, without prayers seated in seeking, surrender, faith, and obedience. This temptation was experienced by people throughout throughout Scripture. So, one could say that it is a normal part of earthly thinking. However, we were called to have a renewed mind that lives under the principles and direction of the Kingdom of God. God’s people often look so closely like everyone else on the planet, that the light of the world is indistinguishable from all the gray around it. But God is calling His people to seek, surrender, and live in faith and obedience.
