The Power of Praise Devotional - Friday 13th October 2017

"Hosanna" by Hillsong 

I love the song “Hosanna” by Hillsong.

The whole song is great, but I really love the bridge as it’s always relevant, no matter what's going on in my life.  

“Heal my heart and make it clean

Open up my eyes to the things unseen

Show me how to love like You have loved me.

Break my heart for what breaks Yours

Everything I am for Your kingdom’s cause

As I walk from Earth into eternity”  

I know for myself, it’s so easy to make snap judgements and have my worldview clouded by past experiences,  positive or negative. I take offence, I misinterpret people, I criticise. I need God to constantly change my heart and my mind, because without him I cannot live the way he wants me to.  

Romans 12:2 NIV: Do not conform to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will.  

I challenge you today to ask God to give you his heart and renew your mind in every circumstance you are facing.
