Romans 12:2 (KJV) And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Man is not just body, man is spirit, soul, and body. The soul houses the mind which is the faculty of the emotions, will, and intellect. The mind is the gateway between the spirit and the body. At new birth, the spirit is saved, the mind(soul) is being saved by the process of renewal and conformity to God’s word through the help of the Holy Spirit, and the body will be saved at the appearing of Jesus.
A renewed mind is one subject to the recreated spirit via the empowerment of the Holy Ghost. A man’s life is an expression of his thoughts. Proverbs 23:7 says, For as [a man] thinketh in his heart, so is he. God cannot help a man beyond the level of his thinking (read Num13:33). No wonder the devil comes to steal, kill and destroy a man by gaining access to his mind through deception, oppression or total possession.
Since the mind is the seat of our thoughts, a mind not aligned to God’s word can’t think God’s thoughts and consequently, that life will end up on chaos.
Hence Philippians 4:8 Finally says: 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. And Joshua 1:8 says: This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. The word of God is the antidote for the old mind. It washes away the old way of thinking and produces a renewed mind that is aligned to God’s will. The more you look into the word (and shape your world view through it), the more your mind is renewed and you are able to align with God’s purposes for your life.
Go into today thinking on God’s word which is pure, lovely, has virtue and can deliver every good report you desire.
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to constantly meditate on your word so that my life will be an expression of your grace. Amen.
