Do You Have Stinky Thinking

Views 519


Isaiah 55:8 KJV For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

Thank you Lord Jesus that your way of life is not mine and your thoughts are not mine, because mine have been and still are messed up.

My thoughts were so messed up at one time it seemed like I was physically drowning and could not breathe. The older I became, the way I was taught to think which influenced all my choices in life got me into trouble. Jesus saved me and I was a new person in Christ but my old thoughts were still primary and each decision went from bad to worse. I needed my mind renewed so it no longer was conformed to the world. I received a new heart through salvation but my mind, phew it stunk! My thoughts needed to change so my life could change.

Do your thoughts still linger in the past? Are you still making decisions off of what your parents, teachers, friends, family etc. taught you? Are your thoughts opposing to God? We will never change if our mind is not renewed!

We will never change if our mind is not renewed!

In order to have new thoughts then our old thoughts must be replaced. Do you understand what this looks like and what will take place? Sometimes it is painful and sometimes it is wonderful to have our mind renewed.

Romans 12:2 KJV 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.

Ephesians 4:23 KJV And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

The only way to replace the error of the world’s way of thinking is to replace it with God’s truth, and the only infallible source of God’s truth is His revealed Word, the Bible. Transformation through renewed minds comes as believers expose themselves to God’s Word through the faithful exposition of it each week in church, personal Bible study, and group Bible study. A solid church that believes in preaching the Word, reading the Word, and singing the Word is invaluable in helping us renew our minds. There are no shortcuts. There is no magical formula for renewing our minds. We must fill our minds with God’s Word. As Jesus prayed to the Father, “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth” (John 17:17).... read more by Got Questions

If you want true change in your life then allow Jesus to give you a new mind. When I received new thoughts then and only then did I begin to make life choices. What do I mean by life choices?

Deuteronomy 30:19 KJV I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

I can tell you from personal experience no man can help you. True help comes from our Lord and Savior! He has the power to break, change and renew what we need inside. The Holy Spirit will teach you all things and all you need to do is ask.

John 14:26 KJV But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Watchman

Ezekiel 33:6 "But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand." (Amplified Bible)
