“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.” (Romans 12:2 ESV)
Ever wonder what is God's will? Or what decision should I make in this particular situation? Here, Paul is linking knowing God's will with having a transformed mind. When our thoughts and minds have been renewed by the Spirit of God, discerning His will becomes easy. Renewed actually means "to change for the better," implying a change needs to be made. Since we are flawed, imperfect humans, our thought lives and minds are flawed and imperfect, as well. The world would have us believe that we have to be dishonest to get ahead, or that provocativeness is acceptable and even desirable, or that a lack of tolerance of sin equals a lack of love. The world's thinking is false, opposite to God's thinking and the way to demise. It's the same line of thinking that led Eve to think she could be like God if she just tasted the fruit. Any thought that raises itself up against the knowledge of God (what is contained in the Bible), is a thought that needs to be booted to the curb. The world bombards us constantly with its way of thinking, through T.V., advertising, the Internet, etc. So how much more do we need to be in God's Word, allowing Scripture and Truth to bombard, attack and overwhelm our former way of thinking? Begin by prayer. Ask God to show you what thoughts are poisonous (James 1:5). Recognize the thought, refuse to allow it entry into your mind and then replace it with the Truth of God's Word. It's hard work and it's much easier said than done, but the benefits far outweigh the daily struggles we will have to fight. Then, we can test and see what is God's will. To test means "to recognize as genuine after examination, to deem as worthy." Satan is a good imitator of the Truth, but the only way to test and see what is genuinely true is to renew our minds with God's Word. So let's get to it! This battle isn't going to fight itself. #livfreetoday#renewyourmind#thoughtlife#takeeverythoughtcaptive#truth#godsword#wordofgod#renew#discern#godswill
The will of the Father, His Own Power (Romans 1:20), what is it truly?
#Scripture is quite clear on this... The will of the Father is for one to #discern the Son (His Own mighty Person(hood), again Romans 1:20). What does this mean?
Discerning Who He, the Son, IS, and to place ones #trust in Him, meaning further, no "other"! The MANY ( #Christianity , not the Few), have been fatally deceived and are failing miserably at "doing the will of the Father", proffering and even continually spreading the #Lie like gangrene, as scripture also predicted they would do, bringing the sting of #death also even unto their neighbors, wittingly, or unwittingly.
One must question, must verify and prove all things as scripture instructs, be as the Bereans, examine all of what they tell you, if it is True, but NOT against "their" (per)versions of scripture, against what was actually, originally written in scripture. Yes, go directly back to the Hebrew scriptures, there's a reason Yâ-hwéh promised His scriptures would be restored! (YshaYahuw "isaiah" 22:9, bringing back the waters of the Old Pool). They have defiled them, removed Him from their (per)versions, in their love for the Lie and to maintain "lordship" over you!
Break #free into True FREEDOM!
Beware of who/what it is YOU #choose to #worship !
It IS a matter of Life and death!
Yâhuwshúa` is NOT #jesus !
You have been warned...
Yâhuwshúa` IS Yâ-hwéh!
Accept NO substitutes!
Sometimes we have to Allow, Surrender, Be -- and that brings the connection we seek. Other times we have to work hard to find it. The balance between effort and surrender depends solely on the moment you're in and discerning which it is you need. ❤️

Mainstream media is in meltdown over Deputy AG Rod Rosensteins comments.
He's telling Americans to be skeptical about anonymous sources in the MSM which claim all sorts of things but not the facts.
Anonymity doesn't mean truth. #discern#mainstreamedia
Desperation makes a man vulnerable to settle for anything that looks like it just to satisfy his immediate hunger. At that point his sense of discernment and judgement is clouded and will not be effective.
There are always those in life that want to deflate your sense of worth, well-being, and esteem. Such people are toxic and the relationships they affect become toxic if they’re allowed to continue to violate boundaries. Never permit such people room to either ruin your mood or invade your space. Remember that sometimes it’s vital to your own soul to invite others to find their happiness elsewhere instead of with you. Please investigate what you tolerate. 💓&blessings #discern#timetomakesomechanges
Torah Portion for the first reader on Shabbat "Bamidbar"
1 And the Lord spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the Tent of Meeting, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they came out from the land of Egypt, saying,
2 Take a census of all the congregation of the people of Israel, by families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of names, every male by their polls;
3 From twenty years old and upward, all who are able to go forth to war in Israel; you and Aaron shall count them by their armies.
4 And with you there shall be a man of every tribe; every one chief of the house of his fathers.
5 And these are the names of the men who shall stand with you; from the tribe of Reuben: Elizur the son of Shedeur.
6 From Simeon: Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai.
7 From Judah: Nahshon the son of Amminadab.
8 From Issachar: Nethaneel the son of Zuar.
9 From Zebulun: Eliab the son of Helon.
10 From the sons of Joseph: of Ephraim: Elishama the son of Ammihud; of Manasseh: Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur.
11 From Benjamin: Abidan the son of Gideoni.
12 From Dan: Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai.
13 From Asher: Pagiel the son of Ocran.
14 From Gad: Eliasaph the son of Deuel.
15 From Naphtali: Ahira the son of Enan.
16 (K) These were the renowned of the congregation, princes of the tribes of their fathers, chiefs of thousands in Israel.
17 And Moses and Aaron took these men who were pointed out by their names.
18 And they assembled all the congregation together on the first day of the second month, and they registered by families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, by their polls.
19 As the Lord commanded Moses, so he counted them in the wilderness of Sinai.
