DO NOT BE CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD BUT BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2)

A lot of struggles go on in the mind of a man on a daily basis. The struggles come in form of negative thoughts and suggestions which the devil use to introduce confusion, doubts and ultimately lure his victims into committing sin.

In Ephesians 6:17, Apostle Paul recommends “The Helmet Of Salvation, which symbolizes a protection of our minds from the onslaughts of the devil.

The practical ways by which we can put on the helmet of salvation is by engaging in prayers, worship, listening to Christian music and teachings, reading and meditating on the scriptures and fellowshipping with other believers.

We are admonished in Romans 12:2 not to “conform to this word, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

A fine Christian sister was afflicted with depression after she suffered some bouts of sicknesses.

At some point she began to hear strange voices and suggestions came up in her mind for her to commit suicide! A minister of God advised her to always fill her mind with the Word of God and to pray at all time in the Spirit. Not before long, she snapped out of the depression and was made whole!

Christians who are not filling their minds with the Word of God are like warriors going out into battle without their weapons of warfare.

NOTEBOOK: Are you fully recharged by the Word of God?

May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!

WALKING WITH
GOD

“For what seems to be God’s
foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and what seems to be God’s weakness is
stronger than human strength………….God has chosen the foolish things of the world
to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the World to
put to shame the things which are mighty” (1 Corinthians 1:25; 27)

Walking with
God is not just a duty, it is a calling. We are called to fellowship with God
and for our fellowship to be intimate and rewarding we must be ready to trust
and obey God. Genesis 26 reveals what practical obedience entails.

Isaac went
to the king of Philistine only for God to tell him to ‘stay put’ in the land
where he was. The ironic thing is that there was grave famine in the land.
Isaac chose to obey God and the bible tells us that “The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became
very prosperous”
(Genesis 26:13)

The
resultant effect of what happened to Isaac is the similar experience a believer
will have after abiding by God’s directives.

We must
purpose in our hearts to obey God no matter the situation that confronts us.
Isaac defiled famine, hunger and dearth to obey God and at the end he had a
testimony.

As children
of God we must be ever ready to defy anything so as to obey God.

The key to
our prosperity is obedience to God instructions!

However, we
must be ready to burn the bridge so that we won’t look back.

NOTEBOOK: What have you defied to
obey God?

May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and
defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
