When we’re at a point of no return, and we feel enough is enough, and we’re tired of being tired, that’s when we should know, its time to break up with our old self and our old ways. Whatever it is or whoever it is, that brought us to this point, it’s not the circumstance or the person, it’s us.
The circumstances and/or the person played a major part in getting us to this point of no return, but it’s God working in and through us through the circumstances and/or the person. Therefore, don’t look at the circumstances or the person as the problem, but a blessing. Just think, had we not gone through it, we would not had grown stronger, renewed our mind, and changed our direction.
God wants to show us who we are. And by doing so, He allow things in our lives to get our attention. He removes the things that do not belong within us, so that he can reveal to us the gifts and power that is within us. But how can we see it, when we are holding on to the old self and the old ways.
A changed mind is extremely powerful. Therefore, renewing your mind will change your direction, give you strength to do what you normally would not do, and catapult you beyond where you can never imagine.
Let go of your old you and your old ways, renew your mind, and watch God reveal the new you, and see how He is working a good work within you. You can’t lose with God.
Isaiah 43:18-19 (KJV) – remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
Romans 12:2 (KJV) – 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.
Philippians 1:6 (KJV) – being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.
