What a great MLK weekend. I pray that everyone who reads this has a great weekend as well.
Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].
We are asked to change our entire mindset. Why is that? Well because when we ask Jesus to become Lord over our lives, we finally are reborn, become new, or rather returned back to God's original intent for our lives. In the beginning, before sin entered the world, we are made in God's image, in His likeness (like Him)! I know but marinate on that for a minute.
Once we can begin to accept who you thought you were (without) God, is not who you are at all, then you can begin to walk in your true authentic self. If you look around in society today, it looks like nothing God spoke for us. Especially for the CHURCH. We have adapted ourselves to societies norms versus kingdom norms. We speak all kinds of ideologies that are completely opposite of what He has said concerning us, and yet we don't understand why we are collecting harvests that produced bad fruit.
Remember this...every word comes out of the treasure of your heart, but where does it originate? In your mind! So let your mind yield "good" fruit as your thought come from HIM. We have the mind of Christ. (1 Corinthians 2:16) So yes our thoughts can be, should be, His thoughts, therefore we can be assured that what we are speaking are the words of our Father, in which we KNOW THAT WE HAVE WHAT WE SAY.
Last nugget...Jesus said: "I only say what I hear My Father say. John 12:49" and He said it believing that He would get manifestation.
Your life is set up in a way that what you meditate on (goes into your heart), comes out of your mouth, and manifestation. So if you know your life is not as the Father has spoken concerning you...then you better inquire of HIM..."Father what have You said concerning me?"
Start by the renewing of your ENTIRE MIND according to kingdom principles versus the world principles.
