Father, in the name of Jesus, I thank You for Your everlasting goodness toward me. Your Word declares, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17). I declare that I am a new creation in Christ; old things have passed away, and I have become brand new. I am no longer controlled or manipulated by my past sins, failures, and iniquities, but I have been made clean by the atoning blood of Jesus Christ. By faith I possess the mind of Christ! I submit my thought life to the Word of God and declare that I think and reason like Jesus. I command any and all mind-binding spirits to leave me now in Jesus’ name. My heart is receptive to Your truth, and Your Word renews my mind. The more I think on godly things, the more I am changed into the image and character of Jesus Christ. I declare that the life of almighty God is made manifest in and through me daily. I declare that the peace of God that passes all understanding rules my heart and mind in the name of Jesus.
Just A Thought...
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 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. (Romans 12:1–2 KJV)
Our mind is one of the most important components of our Christian experience. The Bible says plainly, “For as [a man] thinketh in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7). I like to rephrase that to, “What you set your mind on, you will ultimately manifest.”Many believers love God with all their hearts, but they are unable to manifest the abundant life that Christ gave them, because they have not understood the importance and significance of mind renewal.
What does it mean to renew our minds and why is it so important? In Paul’s epistle to the Romans, he instructs us to “be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.” The word “transformed” comes from the same Greek root word that gives us “metamorphosis.” A metamorphosis is a change of the form or nature of a thing or person into a completely different one, by natural or supernatural means. In other words, we are changed in our natural expression through the renewing (renovating) of our mind. Once we became born-again, we became new creations in Christ (see 2 Corinthians 5:17), but we must appropriate this spiritual reality into every sphere of our lives. In essence, we have to “workout” what God has “worked-in.” The more we meditate on God’s Word, the more we begin to manifest this new life. This is why the things that we meditate on are so vitally important. Many people have what I call “stinking thinking”; that is to say, they are always focused on negativity, defeat, and despair. Let us not be among those who possess a defeated mind-set! Too many believers are losing the battle in their minds. For example, don’t say to yourself, “I am just a sinner!”because the reality is that you are the righteousness of God in Christ! The more we think on the Word, the more the Word will transform our lives.
