Renewing Your Mind

5 Steps To Renewing Your Mind

1.     The Word of God/Spending time with Jesus  (2 Timothy 3:16-17 “All scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives.  It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.  God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.”)
–       The Word of God has the ultimate power to renew our minds and to transform our lives.  As you spend time daily with Jesus, you WILL be transformed.
2.     Confessing your sins to God and to accountability partners in your life, so that you can bring it to light and be set free.
3.     Commit your day and your ways (include your thoughts & your direction) to the Lord each morning (Prov. 3:5-6 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths”).
Offer your body as a living sacrifice each day to God; you can say something like, “I belong to you God, I surrender my will for yours; use me for your gain and your purposes…” This IS an act of worship!  (Romans 12:1 “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 reasonable act of worship.”)
4.     Obey God quickly!  As you lay down your will and seek God’s direction; There are things He will ask you to change or remove (including people)  from your life and there will be things He’ll ask you to do.  As you hear those things, obey Him right away.  Don’t act like you didn’t hear it, or argue with Him, or challenge it…just do it, because there are amazing blessings behind your faithfulness and obedience to Him.
5.     Memorize Scripture.  Write it on note cards or sticky notes and stick them by the shift gear in your car, or on your bathroom mirror where you can see it everyday to help you memorize the scripture.  Hiding the Word of God in your heart is a powerful weapon to tearing down strongholds and to bringing our thoughts captive to the obedience of Christ (2 Cor. 10:4-5)
      As we surrender our lives each day to the One who loves us more than we could ever imagine, we will be transformed day by day and we’ll never be the same!
