Dear Precious Friends,
On this beautiful new day, this gift from God, I pray we are all waking to a new day filled with the hope we have in Him.
We know we are in a battle each and every day. We've been given divine weapons to help us combat the ongoing spiritual warfare in our lives. We have to remember to take our thoughts captive to Christ when the enemy attempts to fill our minds with fear, doubt, anxiety & stress.
How do we do this? How do we move from a weak-minded follower to a strong-minded, healthy, vibrant Christian.
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–His good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2
And this transformation is to come through the process of having a renewed mind!
We open His word, take it in, meditate on it and He directs our paths.
* “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1)
* “Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ” (Romans 10:17)
* “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword” (Hebrews 4:12 ESV)
* “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path” (Psalm 119:105)
* “and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you” (James 1:21)
A renewed mind is surrendered to Jesus Christ, instructed by the Holy Spirit and submitted to the authority of the written Word — the Bible.
Jesus Christ + Holy Spirit + the Word = Renewed Mind
As Spirit-filled believers, may we remember to immerse ourselves in God's Word and we are renewed!
How great is the love of God that He would give us the incredible gift of his word to mold and shape us! Our heavenly Father loves us too much to let us stay where we are. Every day He has a plan to lead us into a more and more abundant life. When we wake up, we must take a minute to ask ourselves what do we want our day to be like. What sort of life do we want to live today? Then ask the Spirit to help us renew our minds to God’s truth so we can live that life. May we Walk in freedom today. May we Live with our mind set on the Spirit. May we experience the incredible life God has planned for us as his child. We will never have a better day than one where our mind is renewed to the truth of God’s unfathomable love.
Now that is reason my friends to say AMEN!
