Reflections From Sunday: Love That Makes You Change Your Mind

The brain is one of the most powerful tools ever made. All of our functions and processes take their journey from the brain to the rest of our body. There was no mistake when Paul told the Romans , “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:2)

We have to renew our minds everyday to the knowledge of Christ. We’ve become accustomed to rationalizing, settling, and accepting less than our worth and promise because of our mindset. These mental barriers have kept us from pursuing the things God already claimed were ours. We feel that freedom, victory, joy, and righteousness (just to name a few), are out of reach to us and we give up trying very soon after.

Today is the day that your mind can be free.  Today, you are allowed to dream again. You are allowed to think of yourself as above and not beneath. Your humility is no longer portrayed as unworthiness, but as confidence in the God that you gladly serve. The blessings stored up for those faithful to God are yours without question. The scripture that promises that, “The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it,” applies to you!

Paul signed off to the church of Ephesus, “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,” The power that is within us will work the minute we begin to think about it. We have to see ourselves the way God does in order for the power to truly be manifested. Paul even told the church of Philippi what to think about when he wrote, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

When we shower ourselves with scripture, soak ourselves in worship with God, and wash ourselves with the blood of Jesus we will find our mind fresher, cleaner, and renewed. Every action begins with a thought. Let your next action be one that draws you closer to the only love that will change your mind for the good.

Make today great!
