Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.” Proverbs 3:5 AMP

One of the factors that fights our intimacy with our Lord Jesus Christ is our human reasoning. That is our mind.  When our mind is not renewed by the word of God it makes it very difficult to follow after Jesus Christ.

We can’t really follow Jesus Christ without knowing His will for our lives. That’s why renewal or renovating of our mind daily is very important.

I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].” Romans 12:1-2 AMP

It’s time to renovate our mind with God’s word. For two can only be intimate with each other only when they agree.

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father,  I thank You for Your word. Help me by Your Spirit renew my mind with your word as I devote my time to study the bible in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
