God is calling us to a place of elevated thinking, which all starts with studying the Word of God in order to be truly transformed. One of my life verses is Romans 12:2 (NLT):

2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Bethel Music Worship Leader, Brian Johnson, is our guest on this week’s episode of The Walk; a devotionals podcast for worshippers. His call to get back to the basics and his transparency about his personal struggles will be a true encouragement to all of those who listen. He challenges us, through Revelation 4, to “come up here” and elevate the way we think about the difficulties of life.

Pain, suffering, the tools the enemy uses to try and pull us away from the truth found in the Bible, are simply that, tools or tactics, and when we allow God to transform the way we think, pain and suffering are viewed through a different lens.
