HOLINESS AND YOUR MIND

KEY ‘SCRIPTURE: Romans 12:2 ” And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”.

The mind of man is the place of accumulation and processing of information. It is the center of influence of the whole being. Our key scripture teaches us, that, when our mind is controlled by the word of God our whole being is transformed.

Evangelist T L Osborn once said ‘ feed your brain and seed your gain. Everybody can lead a life that glorifies God if we would allow the right influence over our mind. To be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. (Romans 8:6). The will of a man will find something difficult to do or stop doing because the mind accepts it is difficult. The moment the mind is able to accept that that thing is not difficult it will cease to be difficult.

God himself will not stop you from doing what your mind accepts to do. Genesis 11:6 ” And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. “. The Lord says, so long as these people have decided to do or go in a particular direction nothing can restrain them. The homosexual person agrees that, that is how he or she is. So long as she thinks of herself that way there is nothing which can change until she changes that line of thought. Our key scripture says when she changes the way she thinks about herself there would be a corresponding change in her whole body. The book of proverbs says in Proverbs 4:23 that ” Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the

issues of life” The heart in this context can represent the mind. All we do comes from what we have stored in our mind. Allow the word of God to have full dominance over your mind. Please stop complaining about your difficulty to change from your wrong habits. TODAY decide to give attention to God’s word and allow it to change you from the way you think about yourself.
