â€â€Romansâ€¬ â€12:2 – How do you *renew* your mind?
â€œDo not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the *renewal* of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.â€ ~ â€â€Romansâ€¬ â€12:2â€¬ â€ESVâ€¬â€¬
How do you *renew* your mind?
- Talk to Jesus. How often do we forget that we can just ask God to guard/protect our thoughts? Prayer doesn’t have to be a routine religious time limited to meals and church leader prayers. God is always around and he loves conversation with his children. Ask Jesus to help you recognize wrong thoughts.
- Recognize negative and sinful/bad thoughts. We all have temptations within our heads that people never see or know we struggle with. Those “harmless” thoughts can lead us down a bad. The moment you have a wrong thought, speak to it with the confidence and Jesus behind what you speak. For me it sometimes good to literally speak out loud and give it a name. Not right out in public of course. Haha.
- It’s a daily thing. You have to be on constant guard. So start each day over.
- Some of you need heart-charge before you can have mind-change. Only Jesus changes hearts. Has Yeshua(Jesus) fully 100% taken lead of your life/heart?
