THE ME I WANT TO BE- PART 2, Renewing Your Mind
"Be careful how you think. Your life is shaped by your thoughts." Prov. 4:23 (GN)
"Your mind must be renewed by a spiritual revolution so that you can put on the `new self' that has been created in God's way ..." Eph 4:23-25 (Jer)

God Has Given You A New Spirit, But You Must Renew Your Mind
When you believe, you become born again! John 3:3
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Cor. 5:17 (NKJV)
“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” Rom. 12:2 (NLT)
Proverbs 23:7, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”

Preprogrammed Thoughts Control Our Lives More Than We Realize
SPIES RESPONSE TO THEIR GIANT- “We even saw giants there, the descendants of Anak. Next to them we felt like grasshoppers, and that’s what they thought, too!” Numbers 13:33 (NLT)
DAVID’S RESPONSE TO HIS GIANT- “...For who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?”... 29 And David said... Is there not a cause?” 1 Samuel 17:26-29

All behavior is based on a BELIEF.
“Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.” Prov. 4:23 (TEV)
 Behind every sin is a LIE that I’m believing.
“At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived, and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures.” Titus 3:3
Changing your life requires changing your beliefs which begins with your THOUGHTS.(Think -> Feel -> Act)
“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. 24 Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.” Psalm 139:23-24 NLT “... the truth will set you free.” John 8:32

DAVID’S REMEDY- PSALM 1
“There must be a spiritual renewal of your thoughts and attitudes.” Eph. 4:23

1. Meditating on God's Word will give you spiritual SUCCESS.
God told Joshua, "Study this Book of the Law continually. Meditate on it day and night so you may be sure to obey all that is written in it. Only then will you succeed" Joshua 1:8, NLT
2. Meditating on God's Word will help you keep a right HEART.
"The word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart" Hebrews 4:12, NIV
3. Meditating on God's Word will give you WISDOM that will guide you.
“I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes" Psalm 119:99 NIV
4. Meditating on God’s Word will fill your mind with God’s THOUGHTS.
"Fix your thoughts on what is true and good and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely, and dwell on the fine, good things in others. Think about all you can praise God for and be glad about" Philippians 4:8, TLB

Change is a matter of CHOICE and I can CHOOSE what I think about.
"We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" 2 Corinthians 10:5, NIV
Think the same way that Christ Jesus thought. Phil. 2:5
