How You Think

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

God does not decide your thought life. How you think is up to you.  But luckily we are not left on our own.  God provides His Word to help in the process of renewing our minds.  

We must resist the natural temptation to allow your thought life to birth sin, stress, worry, panic, fear and the list goes on and on.

Spend time in God’s word this week and allow Him to renew your mind.    Here are a few verses to get you started.

"You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!" (Isaiah 26:3)

"So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace." (Romans 8:6)

"Those who love your instructions have great peace 
and do not stumble." (Psalm 119:165)

Psalm 119 is a great place to renew your mind.
