FRAME YOUR LIFE AND THINKING WITH THE WORD BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16).
The Word is profitable to change your way of thinking. This is what the Lord wants. He desires to change your opinion about Him, about other people, about the world, your perception about life, and even about yourself. He wants you to think right all the time. If you had fear in your life, for example, He wants you to replace it with faith, boldness, and confidence. 2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
The Word is the solution for every problem; therefore, you must trust the integrity of God’s Word. God has given you the Scriptures to keep you on the right path, the path of His glory and righteousness. He’s given you His Word to use in navigating your way through life, in victory and success. Isaiah 30:21 says, “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.” He seeks to change your mindset, the way you reason, and keep you in the path of His glorious destiny for you, through His Word.
Romans 12:2 says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” One of the ways to change your thinking, and ultimately your life from glory to glory is through meditation. As you meditate on the Word, your life is programmed for success, and your thinking is elevated to God’s level. That’s because the Word has a ministry in your life. The Word helps you frame your life and thinking in line with the perfect will of God.
1 Timothy 4:15 says, “Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.” As you yield to the Word and let it have power in your life, you’ll experience greater transformation—increased glory, excellence and beauties of the Spirit in your life.
Dear Father, thank you for your Word that transforms my life and renews my thinking. As I meditate on your Word today, my heart is filled with excellent thoughts of victory and dominion, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
