Bible Study Verses
Do not conform to the pattern 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. (NIV)
Do you ever find yourself on autopilot? You go through each day doing what needs to be done; sometimes snatching a wise phrase here or there of God’s Word, but not necessarily anything that deepens your relationship with God.
Our lives gradually fill up with various demands and stresses. Unexpectedly, we find ourselves lashing out at those we love, or catch ourselves falling into sin we never imagined ourselves falling for. Whoa . . . !
In today’s verse we are told to be changed by the renewing of our mind! The only way to renew our mind is to refresh our mind. When you first wake up, say, “Hello,” to God who has given you another glorious day! Connect with Your Creator! He is just hanging out giving you rain, sunshine, a cool breeze, a great day fishing, or a soul-renewing hike – if you only clear your mind and see His Creation.
Open up His book and see what He has to say. Talk to Him on your commute to work or when you’re out enjoying what He has made for you! When you realize you’ve been on autopilot, open up His manual and choose to let Him be your pilot!

Sportsmen’s Tip of the Day
Don’t approach your next hunt on autopilot. Scout your area to see where the herd is running. Keep your guns in good working order. Clean them thoroughly and regularly. Make sure you site them in for accuracy. Set aside time prior to the hunt for the special people in your life. Invite them to go with you, even if they just want to stay in camp.
