Colossians 3: 2-4
Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
If we are in Christ we do not want the things of the earth we want to seek the things above.Once you gave your life to Jesus and get baptized the holy spirit lives inside of you you are no longer part of the earth but you are apart of the Kingdom of God, I had a really rough week but despite me being sad or discouraged in my faith I look to God and push even harder for victory. Once we change our mindset it gets renewed and the old becomes new. Having a renewed mindset is having focus on God and not on man. It gets tough because the devil is out there trying to corrupt our minds and flesh but scripture says in Luke 10:19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. How often do we use that authority. Do we really use that authority?. I’m one of the people guilty for believing I have no power because I’m a soft person but when it comes to fighting against the power of the enemy we are weak or we don’t have knowledge of the bible that is why it is so important to learn the word of God, not just the words but also applying it to your life. If you resist the devil he will flea from you.Renew your mind so that the devil cannot corrupt it with lies. As a Christian, you may be unaware of how many negative thoughts we think per day about ourselves and our situations. These thoughts can affect our mental health. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
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.
When we know we struggle with certain thoughts about the person we used to be or the stuff we used to do, we have to ask our self is this from God and is this what I really want for my life?Once you have a conversation with Jesus about it,it becomes clear what Jesus wants for your life and that is life in abundance.
Spend time with the word of God and get to know who Jesus is, because He is loving and He cares so much for us we have to start thinking positive and living positive.Start reading your bible because that is the weapon we can use against the devil.
Knowing who you are in Jesus Christ it gives you authority to fight against the evil principalities and the devil.
Love Jesus be thankful for everything and pray that the Holy Spirit guide’s you in every situation I pray this in Jesus Name Amen.
