Transform Your Thinking to Transform Your Life By Myra Wallace I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:1-2 The enemy loves to put thoughts into our minds and if we’re not careful those thoughts produce strongholds that produce feelings which land us into bondage all because we listened to the devil more than we listened to our God! But the good news is we have weapons with which to defeat him. The spiritual war we're fighting requires us to open our spiritual arsenal of weapons and put on the whole armor of God because this war cannot be fought in a normal way. We can’t hit, shoot, strangle, tie him up, or put Satan in jail; but we can defeat him when we use the right tools. We need only to look to Jesus to identify the most powerful weapon we have. You see when the Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness Satan immediately tried to tempt Him and make Him question who He was, but instantly after every attempt of the enemy, every lie of Satan Jesus used the Word of God to rebuke Him and cast Him away. You see the Word is God's manual for life. God's Word is His will and it’s only when you seek His plan that you can achieve the success and fulfillment you desire. His Word is foundational. It's the road map that guides you to your divine destination, without it any path you take may lead to a dead end. Before you can truly transform your life you have to become established in the truth of God's Word and understand the role it plays in your life. When our minds are consumed with the Word of God it opens us to transformation which in turn moves us closer to the will of God for our lives. Easier said than done, we find ourselves regularly responding to situations in our lives more like the world than like Jesus because deceived minds lead to deceived lives. It's these very responses that put barriers and limitations on God's ability to act on our behalf. It's a wellknown fact the deepest recesses of the mind are where life's fiercest battles are either won or lost and abundant living can only be achieved when you intentionally walk with an undefeated attitude. So, the question I ask you is what are you thinking? What's on your mind that's reflecting in your actions? By allowing the Word to guide you you’ll make significant progress in life. God's Word is the starting point for everything and it promises to bless and empower you. Don't continue to let your lack of knowledge concerning the Word hinder you from life changing breakthroughs. Women of God we've been set apart and our thinking shouldn't be like that of the world. Worldly wisdom isn't worth anything if it doesn't line up with the Word. We should have a different logic a different mindset than the world. We should have a compassionate mind, a consecrated mind, a careful mind that causes us to think more of others than ourselves, die to our flesh daily, and be on guard as to what we subject our minds to. The transformation of our mind and our thoughts should give us a different mission and purpose from that of the world. Our lives should be lived in service and sacrifice to God and not ourselves. Sacrificing our time, our talent,
