Have been undertaking a prayer assignment and today’s challenge was:
Present your thought processes to the Lord, allow him to cleanse and renew any areas of your mind and thought life that are not in alignment with his thinking. Decree that you have the mind of Christ.
Wow, easier said than done! Having checked through the suggested verses I honed in on these three and have been talking to God about this, I know what I am hanging on to, I know what I need to let go of, I just have to allow God to help me and to recognise that a lot of my thought process is a hangover from the old me, I am a new creation and therefore I can and will change my ways of thinking, God help me to renew my mind.
Psalm 139: 23-14 – Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.
Romans 12:2 – 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.
2 Timothy 1:7 – For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
I FALL INTO YOUR ARMS
Like a child I fall into your arms, you have my heart you make me brave to face the pain, to allow my brain to kick into gear and understand that all the fear is nowhere near as bad as I think, it’s junk brought with me from another life, debris that holds me back from all you have for me, Lord show me the junk in my heart that offends you, make me see it like you do, cause it to grieve me as it grieves you, let me trade it for the full life you promised, search me, try me, cleanse me of everything that breaks your heart, lead me to be more like your son oh God, pure of heart, set apart for a life of Glory, take the chapters of my story and give me courage to see that the pain I think I feel is only my thoughts binding me, alert me to just how powerful thoughts can be, that what I give power to has power over me, transform me, change my mind, unbind me, demolish the chains of anxiety, search me, lead me, guide me to your eternal glory.
