I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 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, acceptable and perfect will of God. (Romans 12:1-2)
Did you know that you can manage your mind? That’s what renewing your mind is about. You can get into your mind and decipher what files need to be “downloaded” and installed, as it were. You can determine what changes to make in the structure if your thinking; that’s mind management; it’s the primary principle for increasing your value, multiplying your success and upgrading your state.
Where you are today is a function of your mind, your personality is the expression of your mind and as a Christian, you must learn to manage your mind. If you don’t manage your mind, it’ll keep giving you what it already has stored up, good or bad. Sometimes people ask, “What more can I do? I’ve done this and that and I still haven’t had much success. “Manage your mind.”
Our opening scripture says, “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, acceptable and perfect will of God”. That means you have the responsibility to transform your life from glory to glory; you have the responsibility to manage your mind to produce excellence. God expects this of you; He instructs you to do it because He has put the ability within you for that purpose. Your life: How you live, what you do, the character of your words, the totality of your personality, is the expression of your mind.
What changes do you want to make? What more would you like to add to, or take out of, your life? You can achieve this by renewing your mind with the Word, synchronising your thoughts with the spirit of God. The Bible says as a man thinks in his heart so is he. (Proverbs 23:7). You’re the character of your thoughts; therefore manage your mind to produce excellence.
