5. Allow the Holy Spirit to “Renovate” Your Mind
I hope you are catching the revelation of the power of your mind. You might also be realizing all the times you have let your mind be filled with wrong thoughts, negative thoughts, and self-defeating thoughts.
Or maybe it is dawning on you that when you have gone through challenging times, your response has too often been to murmur and complain, as opposed to finding something eternally true to focus on.
Here is the good news: That can all change today. It can change right now.
Lamentations 3:22–23 promises that the Lord’s mercies are there for you each and every day. He does not hold one wrong thought against you. He is thrilled that you are coming to understand the power of your mind. And He is right there with you, to help you start afresh.
If God is helping you see a pattern of wrong thoughts in your past, it is not because He is mad at you or disappointed in you. No. It is because He loves you and wants to help you inhabit more
completely the fullness of what He has given you. He wants to empower you to walk in a greater measure of the dominion authority that you have in Him.
Or to put it really simply, He wants you to realize that when you change your mind, you change your reality. The apostle Paul said it is so well in Romans 12:2 (NASB): “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
In the Greek, that word renewing can also be translated as “renovation.” What Paul is letting us know is that a key to being more than conquerors, and living in the fullness of Christ, is for us not to think like the world thinks. Instead, we are to allow the Holy Spirit to help us overhaul our minds so we think about things from a Kingdom perspective.
If you catch yourself having a negative perspective on things, remember that you are undergoing a “mental renovation.” Ask the Holy Spirit to help you catch yourself in wrong thoughts so you can take them captive, cast them down and replace them with victorious Kingdom thoughts.
You are so much more powerful than you realize! If you would like to find out more about how to harness the supernatural power of your mind to live in the “more!” of God that Christ has given you, order a copy of Robert’s book Winning the Battle for Your Mind, Will and Emotions today!
