Renewing Your Mind

by John and Ruth Greene
YHWH wants His people to renew their minds by the washing of His Word and by His Holy Spirit [Sanctified, Set Apart Spirit]

What you feed your mind is just as important as what you feed your body. What your mind takes in: what you read, the people you talk with, the music you listen to and the movies you watch are part of your mental diet. What you feed your mind influences and changes your mental health and well-being. A strong desire to discover the righteous knowledge of Elohim [‘God’] is a sign of wisdom. (“Wisdom & the Battle of Two Kingdoms“; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“; “The World, Your Emotions and Your Health“; “Breaking the Hold of Stress“)

mark-of-YHWHs-SpiritAttitude colors the whole of every personality. You cannot always choose what happens to you, but you can choose your attitude toward each life situation that you face. The secret to a cheerful heart is filling your mind with thoughts that are wholesome and that dwell on the righteousness of Elohim, through the power of the Holy Spirit. (Philippians 4:8) A disciple becomes set apart to Elohim. This was the apostle Paul’s “secret” as he faced imprisonment. This can be your weapon as you face struggles of daily life. Look at your attitudes and examine what you allow to enter your mind and dwell on. You may decide to make some changes. (“Family Stress Affects Generations“; “Breaking the Hold of Addictive Behavior and Stress“; “The Secret Weapons of Christians“)

thinking-black-woman-smWhat you put into your mind determines what is most likely to come out in words and actions. Paul advises disciples to fill the mind with thoughts that are true, noble, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy. Do you have concerns about your thoughts and daydreams? Examine what you are putting into your mind through television, books, movies, magazines and conversations. Replace the harmful or less upbuilding with wholesome and positive material. Above all, read the Bible and take time for prayer. Ask your Heavenly Father to help you focus your mind on what is good and pure. While this takes practice and persistence, you can do this and see effective progress in short order. (“Mind Control of the Beast“; “Disciple: The Pattern of Your Life“; “The Modern Life Culture Crisis“)

holy spiritNot a single person can fully comprehend YHWH in His fullest sense (Romans 11:34). Yet, through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you can begin to have insight as a believer. You can come to know YHWH’s plans, thoughts and actions. These are shown in the “mind of Messiah” as laid out in scripture. You can begin to know what YHWH wants of you by talking with Him and expecting an answer to your prayers. Are you spending enough time consistently in scripture? Do you have an intimate relationship through the Holy Spirit with your Heavenly Father? While others may not understand or even grasp the concept of Elohim’s Spirit, don’t expect most people to approve or understand your decision for Messiah or to dwell in the Holy Spirit. Your decision may seem silly to them. Like a tone-deaf person listening to beautiful music, the person that rejects YHWH cannot understand His message. A broken line of communication means that people are unable to hear what YHWH is saying. (“Break Down Walls of Darkness with Prayer“; “YHWH’s Prayer Shawl of Protection“; “Listening to the Holy Spirit“)

Bible-Vision-Holy-SpiritYHWH has good and perfect plan for His children. He wants His children to be transformed people with a renewed spiritual mind. He wants what is best for you as you strive to honor and obey Him. Your new life is possible because YHWH sent His Son. Christians [Disciples] are called “not to conform any longer to the pattern of this world” with worldly behavior and customs and self-focused service. This means casting aside corruption and customs of the world. Many disciples of Messiah decide daily to refuse conforming to the world’s values. Renewing of the mind goes beyond behavior, but goes into the heart and deep-seated motivations. Cast aside pride, covetousness, selfishness, stubbornness and arrogance in spirit. The Holy Spirit renews, educates and redirects your mind so that you are truly transformed into a son of YHWH. (Romans 8:5-8; “Plans To Prosper You“; “Discipleship is Renewal“; “Spiritual Fruit & Renewing Your Mind“; “A Branch of the Vine through Trust“; “Authority: The Real Meaning of Romans 13“)

Mind Renewal Outline

What you put into your mind determines what comes out. (Proverbs 15:14; Philippians 4:8)

Renewing your mind (Romans 12:2; Colossians 3:1, 10; Ephesians 4:24; 2 Corinthians 5:17)

Have the mind of Messiah (1 Corinthians 2:15-16; Philippians 2:2-5)

“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
