“I can’t afford to have a thought in my head that He doesn’t have in His head about me. We adjust our thinking to His.” -Bill Johnson
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:2 NIV)
I believe a huge part of having a renewed mind is surrender. A mind transformed has been washed by the water of the word (Eph 5:26) and submits our thoughts to the thoughts God has about us! A transformed mind is a new creation in Christ whose mind is aware of the new identity we have in Him. A transformed mind knows what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us and that we are now sons of God who received the Spirit of adoption, not of bondage and fear (1 John 3:1, Rom 8:15).
I want what He wants for me. What all that entails I do not know. But I do know it is exceedingly and abundantly more than I could ever ask or think.
Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. (Romans 8:5 NIV)
Thy will be done Father, on earth as it is in heaven. Show us Your will and enable us through your Spirit to accomplish the plans you have for us. May our thinking all be aligned with the mind of Christ rebuking every lie of the enemy in Jesus name.
