While being quarantined, I have spent a great amount of time on my phone. I have been shopping, sending email, creating audio, and attending zoom meetings. Yesterday, I was attempting to receive a digital program via text messages. My messages were not coming through as they had been programmed.

I reached out to customer service for assistance. The representative walked me through a series of steps to update my APN programming. My phone was not operating as it was designed because it needed some updates.

We were all created by God with an intended purpose to do good work that he created in advance for us to complete. He gave us everything we needed to fulfill his purpose for us on earth. However, our worldly programming does not allow us to work according to His good, pleasing, and perfect will. Like our cell phones, we too must update our programming to perform at optimal capacity.

Holy Spirit and the Word of God work together to reprogram us. It is through study and obedience that we will be able to rid our minds of thoughts that cause us to act outside of God’s will for our lives. We cannot take full responsibility for how we were programmed, but we are responsible for the reprogramming.

Reprogramming starts with your mind (Romans 12:2). Begin to think what God thinks. Dismiss whatever does not agree with God’s word. Act according to God’s word.

It will not be easy, but the results will be worth it.
