A NEW MIND



Paul referred to the battle that takes place in your heart and mind. He told the Romans:

For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. (Romans 7:22-23, NIV)


In these verses, Paul was speaking of the carnal desires of the flesh which war against the mind and try to make it a slave to the sins of the old carnal nature.


Paul continues by explaining that through Christ you have been set free from this old nature with its sinful desires, thoughts, and attitudes. You are now empowered to serve God with your mind and heart:

O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin. (Romans 7:24-25)


Then Paul explains how sin has been deprived of its power over you. The power of sin which once ruled your heart and mind has been broken, and you are no longer a slave to the sinful desires of your carnal nature:


For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh. (Romans 8:2-3)


Jesus destroyed the works of the devil and set you free from the power of sin. Sin no longer has dominion over you. Once alienated from God, you were bound by your own stubborn, selfish will to live your life to please the flesh. But now, through Jesus, your heart and mind have been cleansed and set free from the power of sin. Your heart and mind are continuing to be renewed daily because you have been reconciled to God:


And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight. (Colossians 1:21-22).


Your mind, which was once under Satan’s control, has been set free from his power. God placed His Spirit within you when you were born again. Your old sinful nature has not been rehabilitated, rather you have a brand new nature. All things are new. You have a new heart and a new mind with new attitudes and desires.


PRAYER:

My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
