It’s a daily struggle but if we desire it, we can do it. It takes a big step of faith.
Every single day we are bombarded with negative news, negative talking, and negative people! So how would one go about renewing their mind?
1. Faith – Do we believe it, taking hold of it, and acting on it? Do you have enough faith that God is listening and answering you? Did you know this?
And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him. (Heb. 11:6)
2. Healing- In order to have a new mindset, we need to be healed from our past. Are you still struggling with that unforgiveness, bitterness, ill feelings towards someone, or envy? We have to pray on it, ask God to heal our hearts and let go and bless them with your prayers. Ever heard of that saying, “you can’t pray for someone you hate.” Think about it.
3. Fear– Whoa! A big word that can be a stronghold to some. What do FEAR mean to you?
It actually means: False Evidence Appearing Real.
Have you allowed fear to take a hold of you? Are you not trusting God enough (look at #1)? Difficult to cast your cares on the Lord? Fear can strap you down and won’t allow you to go where God wants you to go. It won’t allow peace, joy, or comfort. If you have enough faith, fear will have no place.
Jesus said, My yoke is easy and burden is light (Matt 11:30)
4. Self-Doubt– Do you believe in yourself? Are you confident? Is fear strapping you down? Don’t have enough faith?
It’s okay to be out of our comfort zone. It’s okay to reach for more. Allow God to use you and He will do the unimaginable. Take this verse to heart.
Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us (Ephe. 3:20)
Don’t let doubts, fear, and anxiety hold you down! Renew your mind, meditate on the things of God, His Word, His love, His mercy and grace. When we have these things down we are able to poor into the lives of our family, friends, and reach people for Christ, only then you will experiment the fullness of Christ, unspeakable joy, overflowing love, and a peace that surpasses all understanding.
Try renewing your mind everyday. Pray often. Seek God and be hungry for Him.
Prayers invested is never time wasted.
