(Renew Your Thinking With God’s Word),
📖TO THE BIBLE Romans 12:2 RSV
“Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
Unbeknown to you, you had formed an understanding of life gathered from the world’s mental system of thoughts and words, before you were born again. You thought differently on various aspects of life, because of what you had heard and seen in your environment. The thoughts were sometimes harsh, and at other times, they were nice and good. However, God gives us thoughts that are more than “nice and good”; He gives us His Kingdom thoughts, with which to transform our lives from glory to glory.
One of the major reasons many are defeated in life is their thinking. When they don’t think right, they can’t act right, and their minds are held in bondage. Nevertheless, with the transforming power of God’s Word, the limits are broken. Now that you’ve given your life to Christ, you’ve got a responsibility. Don’t conform to the world’s standards and ways of doing things. Be different. Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. That means, change your way of thinking; have a new mindset. If you want to see an increased manifestation of the glory of God in your life, you must keep renewing your mind with the Word.
As you study and yield yourself to the ministry of the Word, your spirit is inundated with divine truths; your mind is elevated to think Kingdom thoughts. This is why learning and meditating on the Word is so important. God’s Word gives you a new way of thinking. Whereas you used to think failure, fear, lack, and want, the Word gives you the mindset of success, excellence, victory, dominion, and abundance.
Renew your thinking with the Word. By hearing the Word of God, and digesting it into you, you develop new thoughts. Set your mind on the Word and let it transform your life.
Ephesians 4:22-24; Philippians 4:8; Joshua 1:8
As I meditate on the Word today, I’m transformed into the image that I see in the Word! The glory of God is in my spirit, influencing my attitude, character, mindset and faith. My life is upgraded by the power of God’s Word today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
