MANAGE YOUR MIND
Prophet Z Majola

"...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)."
When God created man, He breathed His Spirit upon him to make him like Him(Gen.1:26) and gave him the soul(mind, a doorway to a man's heart) to be able to reason on earth and make decisions and put these two in the body. Just like the Godhead (Holy Trinity) so the man is the spirit, having a soul and residing (temporarily) in the body (1 Thes.5:23)
It is the responsibility of every child of God to have a renewed mind. It is the level of our thinking that differentiates us from God. That’s why in our opening scripture the bible says we must not be subjected to the earthly customs in all our actions because the earthly nature is sinful and is in contradiction with the Spirit of God (Read, Gal.5:15-16).
We need to be transformed by the renewing of our minds so that we can view things in God's point of view, i.e. to be able to walk in His perfect will. The perfect will of God is the ability to distinct between what God approves as acceptable to Him and that which He considers sinful.
Renewal of the mind is a sanctification process that is continuous, it is discarding the old thoughts and evil intents to satisfy the flesh and being in total opposition with God. It the process of reversing the fearful and doubtful thoughts and be filled with the knowledge of God's word.
Our minds must be renewed so that we can know the mind of Christ and walk in His perfect will in order to please God. Renewal of the mind brings total transformation to human form. You can only manage your mind through God's word in your spirit so that your spirit can gain dominion over your flesh (Read, Psalm 119:11)
...further study: Romans 12:1-3; Ephesians 4:22-24; 2 Corinthians 3:17-18.
Dear Lord Jesus; your word is Light, please enlighten my mind into total transformation so that my spirit may be in total submission to your will. Renew my mind through your word in my spirit so that I may possess the mind of Christ and walk in your perfect will in Jesus' Name.
