A New Mind-set

God has been impressing upon me that you cannot put new ideas into old mind-sets.   We cannot get new results with old behaviours.    New wine needs new wineskins.

If we are stuck in old patterns of behaviours and have become rigid in our thinking, then I sense that we are going to miss what God is doing by His Holy Spirit in this new season.     God wants us to be open to new things in Him so He can lead us along new paths.

When we came to Jesus Christ we became new creations in him – ” Corinthians 5 17- “Therefore if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation; old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.”     We took on the mind of Christ.

Since that day of new birth and new mind-set in Christ Jesus,  we may have developed a different mind-set through being conformed to the culture of our times, religious thinking, disappointments, fear etc.    Attitudes which give us a wrong mind-set.     I pray the Holy Spirit will reveal if this is the case and help us change our mind-set.

Lord Jesus, reveal by your Holy Spirit any mind-set in me that is not of you and help me to take captive my thoughts and submit them to you.   Please come and demolish any mind-sets which I have which are not of you and will hinder the work of your Holy Spirit through me for your glory.

Repent – Change our thinking

Replace – “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds”.  Romans 12:2

Relax – let God’s Holy Spirit lead the way.
