And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will, of God.
Romans 12:2 (KJV)
The most important thing after getting born again is the renewing of the mind. When we renew our mind in the Word, we are bringing our thoughts into alignment with God’s thoughts. We are learning to no longer speak the words of the world, but to boldly proclaim the Word of God. Scripture tells us that it is through the renwing of the mind that we prove what God’s will for us is. To prove it is to see it made manifest. I can believe that God’s will for me is to prosper and be victorious in every sphere of life, yet the only way I can prove it is to see it come about in my life. And so let us remember the importance of renewing our mind daily, of getting into agreement with all that God has said is true about us in Christ.
