There is a battle being waged constantly for your mind. This battle isn’t about flesh and blood, but instead about experiencing the very promises of God. You see, your mind is the place where emotions, perspectives, and decisions all collide—where lies and truth wage war. It’s where you can choose to experience God and see the world as He does, or choose a different path and struggle in life to attain any sense of his promises at all. Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 10:4-5, “For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.” Paul makes it clear that there is a genuine spiritual battle happening in which taking your thoughts captive is a chief weapon. So let’s look today at the weapon of renewing your mind and how to effectively use it to experience all that God has in store for you.
We have incredible allies in the war for our minds, the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. We’ve been given the Holy Spirit to help us think like God. We’ve been given the Word of God to meditate on so that we can share in His wisdom. But we must engage in this process of transformation to experience a new life “created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness” (Ephesians 4:24b). Moreover, in order to experience that new life, you must “be made new in the attitude of your minds” (Ephesians 4:23). Real action is required to experience God’s promise of a “new self.” You have to see yourself as God sees you. Your perspective must shift and be aligned with God’s perspective and purpose for your life.
Renewing your mind positions you to fully experience God’s promises. Romans 12:2 says, “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.” By renewing your mind, you are able to discern the will of God. It’s a real and practical step to receiving the knowledge of what God has called you to do. By renewing your mind, your life will be made prosperous with the help of the Holy Spirit because He is your Advocate. By meditating on God’s Word, moving 1% each day, you will be led to live a prosperous, successful, meaningful life.
There is a way for you to experience abundant life every day. God has promised victory over the enemy. However, the battle for experiencing His promise is waged in your mind. Start today to renew your mind to the truth of God. Take captive any lies that run through your mind. Choose to align your thinking with His Word. Filter your emotions and decisions with the help of the Holy Spirit. Commit to the MindWolves Creed.
