This world has nothing for me

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. ( Romans 12:2)"Everywhere you go, the world is pressing on every man's mind"- Pastor Don Shoots. I find truth in that statement because just attending a University; you can see how the schools wants the students to conform to their beliefs and idelogies. Even outside of school, you see how every man walks according to his own will or beliefs or the major trend. ( When I say trend; i'm not referring to fashion) Even as Christians and it should not be so. God tells us not to conform to this world. Conform means to comply, bend to standards or what is acceptable in society. God requires for our mind to be renewed in Christ Jesus. Once we have the mind of Christ, we can walk in the perfect will of God and they're wouldn't be such a struggle in this life. Can you imagine? Walking in the pefect will of God? Walking in the perfect plan of God for our lives? The enemy wants our mind to be conformed to this world, so we can be continue to walk in darkness. You may say, How am I walking in darkness? I'm not really sinning. I'm a good person or I don't really do bad things. But, the standard is for us to walk in the perfect will of God. Help us lord. We get caught up our own personal goal or ambitions. We do things in the strength of ourselves. Everything we see is so short-lived. We fail to see the long term vision of what God has called us too. We are to be a people ready for Christ's return. How are we getting ready when we are so consumed with this life. We compromise and expect God to move on our behalf. We aren't focus enough.
Personally, I'm a student at a University, but I'm not committed to school anymore. I use to say God was before school, but my actions put school ahead of God. I know this world has nothing for me.

Glorying in my infirmities

God is showing me the state of man...how weak we are  without him. God tells us to do something; of course we obey him, but we go in the strength of our flesh and then we fail. Time and time again. I've come to realize that I don't care if my weakness is ever before me; as long as the power of Christ is resting upon me; I'm fine with that. As long as I know Jesus is with me and my weakness is made perfect through Christ's strength. I refuse to perfect myself through the flesh."Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh" Galations 3:3 I will glory in my infirmities and weakness.

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corithians 7:19"
