SCRIPTURE: 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.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The transformed life is a product of a renewed mind. When your mind is renewed, your life must be transformed.
Our anchor Scripture reveals that our lives are transformed when our minds are renewed. The transformed life is a product of a renewed mind. When your mind is renewed, your life must be transformed. This means, an untransformed life is a product of an un-renewed mind.
In Scriptures, we understand that the children of Israel remained in captivity in their mind even though they were liberated physically from Egypt. They could not grasp the reality of liberty. They became like slaves that fell in love with their chains. The chains on their legs got transferred to their minds.
Beloved, until your mind is renewed, your life cannot be transformed.
The circus elephant is another interesting example. Whenever an elephant is caught, they would tie its leg with a rope. And so, it would move round in a circle within a certain perimeter of the rope. Any time it wants to get out of that circle, the rope pulls it back, and it remains in that condition for a long time. And people usually come to watch the elephant for fun.
After a long time, they remove the rope from its legs, but the elephant would not make any attempt to move out anymore. What happened? The rope that tied its legs left the legs and tied its brain. And at this point, it gets established in the mind of the circus elephant that that perimeter of the rope is where it belongs. Its mind tells it that it cannot move beyond that perimeter. Nobody is holding it anymore but it cannot go out of the circus because the chain of limitation has settled in its mind.
You see, there are many people whose afflictions have settled in their minds. God has delivered them from their sicknesses and given them breakthroughs in life, but the shadow of their previous bondage or predicament has hindered their total deliverance. My counsel is, renew your mind with the Word of God always to experience total victory in life.
Remember this: The transformed life is a product of a renewed mind. When your mind is renewed, your life must be transformed.
- Refuse to be mentally bound.
- Renew your mind with the Word of God always for the transformation of your life.
