Renewing our Minds

Renewing our Minds

Romans12:2And 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.

God gives you a new spirit when you are born again but not a new mind. You can have a new spirit but with an old mind/mindsets.

When you hear and be taught by the word of God your mind will be renewed. It’s the renewing of your mind that bring about visible transformation.

Your mind is like a computer which has to be programmed. Whatever you feed into your mind that’s what will come out.

How to renew our minds

Its renewed by hearing and receiving the word of God. The old thoughts and ideas will be cleared out as you receive the word of God. Jesus said that John 15:3 “You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.” Also he prayed that John17:17 “Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.”

Choosing the right church is very important since it will help you renew your mind, by what they preach and teach.

Your mind is open to all kinds of thoughts. We should learn to think on right things.

Proverbs23:7 (BBE)”For as the thoughts of his heart are, so is he: Take food and drink, he says to you; but his heart is not with you.”

Proverbs23:7(KJV)”For as he thinketh in his heart, so [is] he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart [is] not with thee.”

What should we think? Paul answered us and has given us some guidelines:

Philipians4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.

Satan will always attack our minds. Your mind is a battle ground. Its open to all kinds of attacks and all kinds of thoughts from the devil.

Satan’s most powerful tool is “suggestion”. Jesus was tempted through the same avenue of his thoughts. Don’t be surprised when outrageous things occur to you. It’s a fight of all born again Christians to keep our mind pure all the times.

Fear is another tool the devil uses. Its opposite of faith and it’s from satan.

2Corinthians 10:5 (ASV) casting down imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ;

2Corinthians 10:5 (BBE) Putting an end to reasonings, and every high thing which is lifted up against the knowledge of God, and causing every thought to come under the authority of Christ;

2Corinthians 10:5 (MKJV) pulling down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought into the obedience of Christ;

2Corinthians 10:5 (MNT) For I pull down imaginations and every crag that lifts itself against the knowledge of God. And I carry every thought away into captivity and subjection to Christ;

You must learn to capture all thoughts that do not conform and obey Jesus Christ.

How to control our thoughts

The best way to control our thoughts is through listening to preaching’s, good gospel music, bible tracks and watching wholesome videos.
