Bubbles are so much fun; just ask any kid! They love to chase them and try to catch them! They are so kinetic and pretty.
When I read God’s Word and retain it in my mind by believing, I feel like I’m walking around in one of those beautiful bubbles. It is the bubble that God provides us as he reveals himself to us.
In Romans 12:2, Paul writes:
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.
It is the renewed mind that is the source of all power. It is one thing to read the words on a page, but it is quite another thing to have the words on a page transform your mind. God’s Word is no ordinary book. God’s heart is magnified to us as we read and understand the truth that pertain to our specific situations, properly applied. It is ‘gold’ to us and puts us in the zone!
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver. (Proverbs 25:11)
The bubble is transparent, we can see through it. We don’t walk around blind to life. The challenges of any day can be seen and can seem to press against the curve of the bubble, but we can stay within its boundaries in our minds to accomplish whatever we have to do.This bubble doesn’t have to pop! The renewed mind is not a ‘grit your teeth and bear it’ thing; it is living and acting in that deeper meaning of life, knowing and trusting the God that truly loves us. It is really kinetic and pretty! That is when our life bubbles over to others.
