TOPIC : TRAINING THE MIND
Read: Romans 12:1-2
1. I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2. 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.
Memorise: Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Philippians 2:5
Training the mind involves channelling it back to God, especially through His word which is the final authority. This is very important because when your mind has been trained to know Gods opinion about a matter, you will not be easily moved, instead, you will respond to situations as a conqueror and not a victim.
Relying on God completely after praying on a matter is another way to train your mind. When you rely on His guidance, He will instruct you on what to do in order to change the situation or simply accept it as His will. Either way, you are training yourself to live according to Gods will.
In addition, when the Bible says in Hebrews 10:38 that The just shall live by faith, and faith comes by hearing (Romans 10:17 ), it means faith comes by constantly hearing Gods word. Saturate your heart with Gods word so much that it will become difficult to find space for sinful thoughts or actions.
Father, please give me the mind of Christ.
