I was reading a section of a Derek Prince book this afternoon and it made me think about the results of mind renewal.
I often write about renewing the mind, after all it is the way to lasting and permanent change in the life of a believer.
This ties in with what I’ve been learning from another teacher recently that mind renewal is more than just understanding the Word of God.
That is where the process starts; we need to renew our mind through God’s Word, as that is where we find truth after all.
So mind renewal is more than gaining knowledge and understanding, although this has to happen for the process to reach its conclusion.
With knowledge and with understanding there must come a change in thinking, there needs to be an improvement in attitude and the way we think.
Mind renewal brings a change in priorities and it brings a change in values.
For mind renewal to take place there must be a practical use of knowledge, we must ‘do something’ with that knowledge.
Mind renewal includes putting into place and ‘practicing what we preach’.
Those around us should see the evidence of our mind renewal.
They should see us behaving differently, with renewed priorities and improved choices.
It does however all start with getting into the Word and gaining knowledge.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for your Word and thank you that I can be transformed through the renewing of my mind”.
Romans 12 v 2……And be ye 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
