TO THE BIBLE: Ephesians 4:23-24 AMP
“…Be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude], and put on the new nature (the regenerate self) created in God’s image, [Godlike] in true righteousness and holiness.”
Did you know that when a demon is cast out of a person, he can find his way back into that person, and even bring with him seven other more wicked spirits? (Matthew 12:43-45). That’s why it’s not enough to cast out devils; that satanic influence must be replaced with the ministry of the Holy Spirit. You’ve got to teach and minister God’s Word to that person, because it’s the Word that would wash him clean and transform his life.
It’s the same thing when dealing with negative habits. Part of our opening scripture says, “Be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind….” That’s talking about being renewed in the “character” of your mind. If a Christian has a bad habit, and he says, “I’ve tried to stop it, but I just can’t” that’s proof he hasn’t given himself wholly to the Word. Romans 12:2 says, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
Through the Word, you’re able to replace fear with faith, and weakness with strength. With the Word of God, you can do anything, and be all that God wants you to be. Give the Word first place in your life; yield yourself completely to the Lordship of the Word.
I’m renewed in the spirit of my mind, through the Word! The righteousness of God inundates my life! Satan has nothing in me, because I’ve put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness; and I live accordingly. Glory to God!
