Do you renew your mind daily? Our minds require a constant renewal because of the incessant flood of thoughts. Evil thoughts, worldly thoughts, other negative and wasteful thinking, attack us. Throughout the day we create and consume all sorts of content, both written, audio and visual. What we consume impacts our daily thinking, thereby, our living.
Without a clear plan our mind get’s scattered, and we end up doing other non-urgent work. Our heart is then charged with confusion and worry by the time we realise what needs to be done. For worldly responsibilities, we can create specific plans as per our own daily schedule. But, that’s work, a temporary cause. What about what really matters? Our spiritual life?
Renew your mind by sticking to the ‘Why’
Being born again shifts our focus to the spiritual life from the daily worldly life we live in. It’s a huge difference, sadly, many believers are found living the old life and settling on just being good. Some believers are confused why they feel weary and hopeless. It’s not the lack of purpose, but having forgotten why you were saved.
When we remember who we are in Christ we will walk according to the vocation we have been called. Jesus will be in the center of what we do. We will do all things with God’s word in mind. When we increasingly consume earthly content, we end up deserting our calling little by little. We end up asking the same questions every now and then. The world and its lust’s keep finding its way into our hearts.
Refresh your mind and heart regularly during the day so you can walk confidently in times of great despair that’s flooding the earth. Maranatha, Praise God and Amen.
“My son, keep thy father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother: Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck. When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee. For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:” (Proverbs 6:20-23)
