Position Your Mind Rightly
“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”
Our theme verse reveals the required supernatural exercise that causes you to develop in the God-life, and grow from glory to glory; it’s by the renewing of your mind through the Word. When your mind is renewed with the Word of God you’ll walk in the perfect will of God; the reason you must be renewed in the spirit of your mind (Ephesians 4:23).
Your mind is the doorway to your spirit; it’s the agency through which your spirit is trained and developed to be a sure-guide. If it’s blocked, the Word of God can neither access nor get into your spirit. If the Word doesn’t get into your spirit, you can’t have faith, for faith is the response of the human spirit to the Word of God. Therefore, every time you study or hear God’s Word, you consciously have to position your mind rightly for the Word to be effective in you. You have to synchronize your thoughts with the Word.
The more time you spend meditating on the Word, the more your mind will yield to the Word and be imparted by it’s power, resulting in a transformation in your life. Hebrews 3:8 warned us not to harden our hearts against the Word as the Israelites did during their journey from Egypt to the Promised Land. Many of them couldn’t enter the Promised Land because they didn’t mix the Word with faith. Many in the Church are suffering today for the same reason; the Word of God isn’t producing results in their lives because it’s not mixed with faith (Hebrews 4:2).
Your prosperity and greatness is dependent on the state of your mind. Therefore, position your mind rightly by renewing your mind with the Word so you can think God’s thoughts.
Thank you Father,
for my mind is attentive to your Word at all times. Therefore, my spirit is aglow with the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ; the light of the knowledge of your glory shines perpetually in my heart,
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
