How to renew your mind
When we start renewing our mind in the Word of God, supernatural change begins to take place. Renewing of the mind is crucial because you'll never have the image of what you should be and could be in Christ unless your mind is renewed through God's Word.
You may ask yourself, "why isn't the will of God happening in my life?" Because you have not had your mind renewed. You have not seen yourself as God sees you. If you did and your mind was renewed, you would then be able to allow the perfect will of God to be manifested or to be evident, in your life.
What is the will of God for your life? Read your Bible. Pray. Spend time with God. You will discover the perfect will of God for your life as your mind is renewed. You will have the image of what the Word paints. As you see the image of the will of God for your life, it allows the will of God to come into your life. Until you have the image of what God has for you, you will never walk in it. Never.
WRITE GOD'S WORD ON YOUR HEART!
In Habakkuk 2:2-3, God speaks to His Prophet and tells him to, "write the vision and make it plain...for the vision is yet for an appointed time...though it tarries, wait for it, because it will surely come to pass". God is saying that although you don't see it right now, the vision that he has given you will definitely come. The vision, that image, must be written in your heart. It must be spoken about from your lips and you must hold fast until it is manifested.
In Psalm 119:11 David says, Your Word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against you. We are to "Write" God's Word upon our hearts, How?
Reading the Scriptures.
Pray the Scriptures.
Hear the Word of God Preached.
Share the Word of God with fellow believers.
The Bible says that the tongue is the pen of a ready writer ( Psalm 45:1). God wants us to write the Word on our hearts by speaking it out loud to ourselves and to others.
What you meditate on is deposited deep down in your heart. The vision is placed into your spirit and out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. When you speak it, it comes into being. The third chapter of James says that the tongue becomes the rudder that sets the course of your life.
Direction in life starts with a Word from God which creates an image in your heart and mind which, when you speak it, begins to become reality.
Habakkuk tells us that we have to write our vision. How do you write a vision?
Put it in your heart.
Speak it with your mouth.
Keep it before you.
Have a clear vision of where you're going.
You will obtain this vision as a reality in your life through faith. Romans 10:17 says, o then faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Habakkuk goes on to tell us that, The just shall live by faith. In other words, we are to take hold of God's Word by faith and believe it, it will come! Though it tarry, though it's invisible, it's not always going to invisible.
Proverbs 23:7 says, As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. Another translation says, As a man thinks in his heart, he becomes. You become what you think because you are shaped by, and changed into, whatever image you have of yourself.
Get the image of the Word, apply faith and obtain your vision so that you can be VICTORIOUS!
