Renovate Your Mind

Renovate Your Mind

Revelation 3:20 KJV “Behold, I STAND AT THE DOOR, AND KNOCK: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”

What we think about🤔 opens doors and closes them in the spirit realm.🚪

Isaiah 26:3 KJV “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose MIND IS STAYED ON THEE: because he trusteth in thee.”

When our minds are, “Stayed on thee,” our door is wide open to God. We are in fellowship with the Holy Spirit.😊 This results in perfect peace and eternal life. Doing this also securely shuts our door to the Devil. Ask yourself, “What do I think about most? What is constantly on my mind? Stuff about this life? Or the things of God?” These a very important questions. Because what we think about determines our destiny:

Romans‬ ‭8:6-7‬ ‭HCSB “For the mind-set of the flesh is death, but the mind-set of the Spirit is life and peace. For the mind-set of the flesh is hostile to God because it does not submit itself to God’s law, for it is unable to do so.”

The mind is a powerful thing. Listen to how God described the mindset of everyone in Noah’s day:

Genesis 6:5 KJV “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that EVERY IMAGINATION OF THE THOUGHTS of his heart was ONLY EVIL continually.”

God said, ‘Every imagination of the thoughts of mankind’s heart in Noah’s day was ONLY EVIL CONTINUALLY.’😳 They had no good thoughts? Their minds were corrupt 24/7? That’s what God said. The world back then was an open playground for the dark side. (Genesis 6:1-7) Man’s wickedness was, “Great in the earth.” Interestingly our schools never taught us about how wicked things were in Noah’s day.🤔 Could it be because our days are similar? Did you know that Jesus said when he returns the world will be as it was in the days of Noah. (Matthew 24:37-39) Most have no idea just how wicked things were back then. Man was wicked enough to provoke God to destroy the whole world in a flood. God says when Jesus returns He will destroy this evil world by fire. (2 Peter 3:6-7) Mankind’s wickedness is great again in the earth. His mind is totaly corrupt.

Are our minds garbage dumps? Which side of the spirit realm are we opening doors to by what we think about?🤔 Has this world’s entertainment fooled us? If you look up the etymology of the word, “Entertainment,” you will find that word means to go inside of (enter), and control the mind. What?😲 That’s right. Is this world’s wicked music, movies, and other forms of media going inside of and controlling our minds? Or is my mind being renewed daily by the word of God?😊

Romans 12:2 HCSB “Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the RENEWING OF YOUR MIND, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.”

A mind not renewed by God can not discern God’s will. And that’s exactly why Satan wants to control our minds. He doesn’t want us to open the door and let Jesus in. No, he wants full, inhibited access to us. Satan wants our minds to become amusement parks for him and his demons. He will entertain us in order to achieve this. He will make raping our minds, our hearts, and our souls, seem like fun. Reject wicked, worldly entertainment that dishonors God. It is harming us though it feels good momentarily.

“REPENT” IS NOT A CURSE WORD

Did you know that the word, “Repent,” used in the Bible literally means to change one’s mind? To change one’s way of thinking? Yes, check the Greek etymology of the word. The Devil has made, “Repent,” sound like a curse word. Whenever people hear, “Repent,” all kinds of wild, scary ideas pop into their heads. This is partly because people don’t know what the word means. All God is asking people everywhere to do is change their mindset (Repent). The same way we change a channel on a T.V. set with God’s help we can change our mindset. Repentance is a decision. When one changes one’s mind one’s actions follow. God is asking us to examine ourselves, our thoughts, our ways, and be honest with ourselves. If we are truly honest we will recognize we have sinned against a Holy God. None of us have done what is right all the time. (Ecclesiastes 7:20) In fact some of us will admit we’ve done wrong most of the time. If we humbly admit this to God in prayer asking for His forgiveness, and let Him know we want and need Him in our lives, do you know that GOD WILL FORGIVE US? No matter what we’ve done?😊 (Proverbs 28:13)

The wages of sin is death. (Romans 6:23) Since all have sinned all legally deserve to die. But the good news is Jesus paid our sin debt when He died for us on the cross. That’s a debt we don’t legally have to pay.😊 ANYONE WHO BELIEVES in this provision from God (what Jesus did for us on the cross) can be forgiven for ALL their sins and wicked thoughts, and have eternal life!😊

If you haven’t done so I encourage you to ask God in prayer for His forgiveness of all your misdeeds and sins. Believe that Jesus paid your sin debt so you won’t have to in hell. Thank God for His mercy and ask Him to come into your heart and life. If you sincerely do this He will let you know you are truly forgiven. And He will let you know what to do next. Don’t worry just trust Him.😊

John 3:16 HCSB “For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.”
