Align with the word of God December 7, Sunday
”And be renewed in the spirit of your mind” Ephesians 4:23
We live in a society and time when evil and all forms of perversion appear to be on the increase daily. As a result, believers are tempted to begin to think like the world. It has become a case of ”if you can’t beat them, then join them”. You cannot afford to be in company of those who are becoming worldly in their thoughts and lifestyle. The Bible says it clearly in John 17:16 that though we are in the world, yet we are not of the world. Did you see that? Not of the world. That means you are completely different, because if any man be in Christ, old things have passed away and all things have become new.
That change of status also involves a change of lifestyle. Romans 12: 2 says ”And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” The renewing of your mind can only come through the word of God; that is where you make adjustments in your daily living. You superimpose the word of God upon your mind and get it to be in line with the mind of God. In other words you see yourself the way God sees you. The world says you are a failure judging by where you are now, but the word of God says you are the head and not the tail, above and not beneath. The more of the word of God you put in your system, the more your mind is renewed, and pretty soon your spirit man is transformed and you conform to the image of Christ.
This mind renewal is very vital, because the devil would always want you to see yourself as one who would never make it in life, but you must learn to cast down such thoughts and imaginations with the word of God. Renew your mind with your covenant rights and privileges, as a child of God, stand on them and you will receive the victory.
