"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…" (Romans 12:2 KJV)
When you were born again, you were imparted with the very life and nature of God at its best, and it can’t be improved. Plus that, you were given the very righteousness of God to which you can’t add. Also, you received the Holy Spirit in His full measure; nothing missing or left out. Furthermore, you’re inside the Kingdom; you’re a bona fide heavenly citizen NOW (Philippians 3:20 NIV).
We’ve all received the same nature of God, and the same Holy Spirit. We’re born into the same Kingdom, and dealt the same measure of faith; so, why the disparity in our lives and in our results? The reason must then rest in something else: the power and use of our individual minds!
If you’re going to change—if you’re going to see another you, a more influential, effective, powerful you—you must change your way of thinking. There must be a significant change in your mind. That you’ve become a Christian or received the Holy Spirit doesn’t mean your reasoning will change. That effort is your responsibility.
As read in our theme verse, God gave us the responsibility to change our way of thinking, to renew our minds with the Word of God. You have to literally submit yourself to the Word to change your mind and give you a new way of thinking.
It doesn’t matter that a Christian is quoting Scriptures; as long as those scriptures haven’t affected his mind, he’s not going to be different. That’s why we wrote the book “The Power of Your Mind.” The purpose of that book is in the title.
Everything about your life, including your Christian growth, has a lot to do with the use of your mind. So, ingest God’s Word into your mind; feed and meditate on the Word. The guaranteed impact will be a transformation in your whole being that’ll result in increased manifestation of the glory of God in your life! Success, excellence, victory, dominion and abundance will be the hallmark of your daily life. Hallelujah!
"I’m constantly transformed by the renewing of my mind with the Word. I yield myself to the ministry of the Word, getting my spirit inundated with divine truths and my mind elevated to think Kingdom thoughts. I have a new mindset, resulting in increased manifestation of the glory of God in my life! The Word has given me the mindset of success, excellence, victory, dominion and abundance. Hallelujah!"
