The Power of a Renewed Mind – Beloved Women – February 11, 2021
READ: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” (Romans 12:2 NIV)
TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT: Maybe you’re like me and have thoughts popping into your head a mile a minute of what needs to be done today, tomorrow, and even ten years from now. Maybe you struggle with negative thinking about yourself and must constantly fight off bad thoughts. Maybe you’re focused on what everyone else is doing and these thoughts are leaving you depleted and envious.
Our thoughts can be a very powerful guiding force in our lives. Where our mind goes, our actions will soon follow. When we lose control of our thoughts we are quick to get off track.
If we want to live the lives God has purposed for us to live we must be diligent about guarding our thoughts. A renewed mind does not do the things of this world. A renewed mind transforms us out of harmful patterns and into a life that glorifies our God.
PRAY: Dear Heavenly Father, I ask that you purify my mind and grant me thoughts that give You glory. I love You. In Jesus Christ’s Name, I pray. Amen.
REFLECT: Have your thoughts gotten you off track lately? What good things can you think on today?
