WELL, I am here to share some good news. While we are truly made new in our spirits, and longing for our soul and body to reflect that new life - we can be transformed. It's quite simple actually.
That's it, 'Be transformed, by the r-e-n-e-w-i-n-g of your mind. Renew your thinking. How? By believing what God has done for you and who He has made you into. Let me tell you, this is true!! I can vouch for it. I am being transformed from the inside out.
I am here to tell you, don't look at your sitution, circumstances, flesh or struggles. Nuh uh. Look at TRUTH. Look at Jesus and fill your mind with what He has done. Even if no one else can see the transformation yet, don't worry, they will. Cause it's His word. It's a guarantee. He has accomplished much for you to live in the benefits of. So come on now, and just fill your mind with the truth that you can't see. It's where your hope lies. You have no hope in your flesh, or what life may bring your way. Your hope is in what He has already made new in you, and you can continue to live in this newness. Every day, new mercies, new beginnings, renew your thoughts. Refresh yourself, by believing what happened at the cross is truly finished!
I love all the various definitions of renew. To begin, or take up again. To restore or replenish or make new. To revive, re-establish. To recover. To begin again, recommence. To regain or restore the physical or mental vigor of. Or how about this one, to bring back to an original condition (can you say - prior to the fall) of freshness and vigor. And interestingly enough, one of the synonyms for renew is regenerate. How cool is that?!!
So that's what God has put on my MIND lately. Haha. We are transformed by the renewing of our mind. By believing the Gospel. Not by our efforts, strength, our own pursuit of sanctification or good behavior. But by r-e-n-e-w-i-n-g our minds!!! Grace and peace to all who stop by!!!
