How to RENEW your Mind

Divider
But we have the mind of Christ.

1 Corinthians 2:16


Have you ever struggled with wandering thoughts? These distracting thoughts keep us from focusing on Christ and His calling on our lives. Our thoughts could be around a relationship, fantasies, revenge, worries, etc. The spectrum of our thoughts can move a mile a minute and across the world without us leaving our homes, jobs, or schools.

God blessed us with creative minds for His purpose more than for our own. It’s His will that we have the mind of Christ in our daily lives so that we can honor and glorify God with our words and actions. However, our flesh, the world, and Satan are constantly bombarding our minds with a different agenda. Because of this internal and external pressures, we have to constantly renew our minds in Christ Jesus. How do we RENEW our minds in Christ Jesus?

R – Recognize our responsibility to deal with wandering thoughts.
“To put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds.” (Ephesians 4:22)

E – Engage in the spiritual battle for mental clarity.
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5)

N – Never excuse ourselves for entertaining unrighteous thoughts.
“But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.” (James 1:14-15)

E – Expect the mental attacks, temptations, or challenges when we are the most tired, weak, or worn out.
“And when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from him until an opportune time.” (Luke 4:13)
W – Worship God throughout your day in music, meditation, and prayer.
“Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.” (Colossians 3:2)

Prayer

Dear Lord, I want my thoughts to glorify You. I pray Your strength to overcome evil with good. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
