Succeeding by …

                                     … renewing your mind!

As with everything in life, if you are going to succeed,
… you need to have a clear goal.

      And do not be 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 2

No, the goal is NOT renewing your mind,
that is the path.
Living that good and acceptable and perfect will of God,
that is the goal.
And to reach that goal depends on the decisions you make.

      What happens in your life is determined by your decisions,
      … and that is what the renewing of the mind is all about.
      What you think and what you decide.

Having set the goal, to live God’s perfect will,
the way there is obvious …
… find out exactly what His will is, through His Word,
… which will give you a clear vision.

So how do you renew your mind?

      bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
      2 Corinthians 10 5

We are thinking ALL the time,
… which means we are making decisions all the time.
Since the devil’s playground is the mind,
… it is imperative that we
compare every thought with what God says about it.
And in that way,
… as we continue to decide on every thought according to God’s will,
… our minds are being renewed to His way of thinking,
and our lives are being transformed into His perfect will.
