God's Providence

Ever since I randomly opened the bible to Romans 12 in college, this passage has enlightened me to see that God's plan for our lives, and above all our cooperation in that plan, is the most "good, pleasing, and perfect..." thing that could ever happen. God, thank you for Your Divine Providence in our lives.

Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer 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.

Romans 12:1-2

Thanks for this beautiful passage. Just what I needed today. Romans is my favorite book, and this is a great reminder of the many reasons why. God bless!
