Anchor scripture: 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 12:2]
Transformation only happens when renewal of the mind takes place. The mind is the faculty of reasoning. It’s functioning is influenced by the information stored in the memory (that form beliefs). All that you are is a product of your thoughts. The change only comes when there is a change in thought pattern; this can be achieved through upgrading the kind of information you receive through the five senses.
The human mind is a gate, therefore, it must be guarded; if you allow in wrong information, you will be processing wrong thoughts, negative energy breeds negative vibes, the reverse is also true. That is why God gave us a template of things to fill our minds with. [Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8]. It is backwardness (not wise) to think on things that are not true, just, lovely, having good report, virtue, and praise worthy.
Our computers, phones, buildings have been upgraded. We need to upgrade the way we think and redefine reality. A lot of concepts have been distorted by cultures and certain influential individuals to suit their own convenience. Growing up, most of the things you do and have accepted are unconsciously gotten by what is obtainable around you at that time; it is therefore expedient to question everything based on the truth from God’s word in order to have a personal operating system, without which you will be living with those distorted realities that may not be right. The mind upgrade happens when you change your beliefs and upgrade your daily habits.
Renew your mind, break from mental limit, accept God’s will and enjoy all that God has already given us freely.
Decision: I choose to renew, upgrade and use my mind to give God glory.
