“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
Romans 12:2 NKJV
The Bible gives many references to your mind and the thoughts that we have. It describes how we are to submit our thoughts to God, how our mind is to be transformed. I always tell people if your thought process if focused on Jesus and the Word of God when circumstances happen you are prepared. However if you have turmoil on the inside then when turmoil happens on the outside, in this world, we are completely shaken and unstable. We react to the circumstances and are often defeated. We have the mentality of matter over mind, in other words, we are defeated by our circumstances, crushed by the things that are happening to us and around us. However, that is not what God’s word tells us, it tells us that we should be transformed by the renewing of our mind. In other words, we should be changed, taking a new path, because we are thinking on things that are of God. So that when everything is shaking and crumbling around you, you are able to overcome these things. So today, place your thoughts on Jesus, not on what the world is saying, but what Jesus is saying to you.
