RENEWING YOUR MIND BIBLE STUDY ON RENEW YOUR MIND BIBLE VERSE FOR RENEW YOUR MIND IN THE BIBLE ADVICE

Welcome to our Christianity Oasis Christian Walk Bible study program. This is our thought provoking and extremely intriguing Renewing Your Mind Bible study taking an in depth look into the Renew Your Mind Bible verse and discovering how to renew your mind in the Bible tips and experiencing the absolutely awesome message within the Renewing Your Mind Bible study on the Renew Your Mind Bible verse and how it affects your YOU-nique Christian walk.




RENEWING YOUR MIND BIBLE STUDY FROM RENEW YOUR MIND BIBLE VERSE SHARING RENEW YOUR MIND IN THE BIBLE SCRIPTURE

What does renew your mind mean and how do you renew your mind? The Bible makes it clear that we are to renew our minds.

Romans 12:2
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.

Renew Your Mind ... Sounds like some kinda new wave self help concept does it not?

It's nothing new. It is a concept that's quite old and comes from the Bible. It's not anti-Christian, scientific mumbo jumbo and there are no psychological mysteries about it. It's not complicated. It's not only for certain people, but rather is a state of mind that the Apostles and even Jesus taught us to create within ourselves as to be able to overcome the world within us.

Let me ask you a question. Each time God forgives you, isn't your mind renewed? When you repent for a sin that you've committed, and you FEEL God's Grace rain down upon you, aren't you experiencing a renewal of the mind and heart, like a new beginning, and a fresh start?

In that case, was not our mind RENEWED?

2 Corinthians 4:16
For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

We are encouraged to: Think like Jesus thought. Have a Jesus-like mind.

Philippians 2:5
Let this
mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.

We have the mind of Christ.

1 Corinthians 2:16
For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? but
we have the mind of Christ.

If you could have a mind like Jesus, wouldn't you call that a renewal of your mind?

When you become a Christian, your old self (man) dies, and you are 'Spiritually' reborn. You become one with Jesus, so indeed, your mind is renewed. You then strive to live no longer in the flesh, but in the Spirit.

Be transferred by renewing your mind. Put on the
new man.

Ephesians 4:23-24
And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

When you're born again, you begin to look at things differently and Spiritually ...
With a pureness of mind.

Put on the new man, renewed in knowledge after Godís image.

Colossians 3:10
And have put on the
new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him.

Human nature is against God, follow the Spirit.

Romans 8:5
For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.


RENEWING YOUR MIND BIBLE STUDY AND RENEW YOUR MIND BIBLE VERSE - RENEW YOUR MIND IN THE BIBLE QUEST

God has given you a sound mind.

2 Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Of course, you do live in an ungodly world, and evil will try with all it's might to infiltrate your mind. The laws of the flesh, war with the laws of the mind.

Romans 7:23-24
But I see another law in my members,
warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

Avoid the mind being corrupted by the serpent.

2 Corinthians 11:3
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

But, we know that we must overcome these things with our renewed mind because, in order to maintain a renewed mind, you must serve God with your mind.

Romans 7:25
I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

You must have a willing mind.

2 Corinthians 8:11
Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have.

In love, be likeminded, be of one mind.

Philippians 2:2
Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

Strengthen your mind.

1 Peter 1:13
Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.


RENEWING YOUR MIND BIBLE STUDY RESEARCHING THE RENEW YOUR MIND BIBLE VERSE / RENEW YOUR MIND IN THE BIBLE METHOD

Philippians 3:13-16
Forget the past, think forward, be thus minded.

We must stop looking back and start looking forward.

How do we do this when our minds are flooded with thoughts?


FOCUS FORWARD

Foolishness we fill our minds with
Insanity we let our hearts take in
Senses numbed by every temptation and myth
The mind and heart become filled with sin

How can I ever achieve peace?
How do I renew my mind?
How do I make the whispers cease?
I feel I am falling behind

Strengthen my spirit and soul
I just want to be free
This is my aspiration and goal
To become who Iím supposed to be.

Help me let go of my past
And take off my mask
Strengthen my faith in HIM at last
Casting down imaginations is my task

Every whispered lie that isnít right
Bringing into captivity every thought
With all of my heart and might
For Christ, as my soul was bought

For me, His precious blood was shed
Stripes upon His back, skin peeled
The thorny crown upon His head
Gives me the ability to be healed.

All of these thoughts affecting my soul
Forgetting the past, thinking ahead
Please Lord, Help me control
The whispered lies inside of my head

And be thus minded
Holding on to this simple rule
I wouldnít be so blinded
I wouldn't be a puppet or fool

Forget those things which are behind
Focus and press forward to the prize
This I must always remind
Instead of pondering on the lies.

We are taught that we must learn to control our thoughts.

2 Corinthians 10:5
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and BRINGING INTO CAPTIVITY
EVERY THOUGHT to the obedience of Christ
...

As you can see, we are to renew our mind.
But ... How do we accomplish this difficult task?

When you become a Christian, you are reborn in the spirit. Each person's rebirth is a unique experience, but one thing is for certain ... Like anything else that is secure in your life, it has to become a part of your lifestyle, not just something you tend to now and again.

A lot of people expect that when they become a Christian, they will suddenly be enlightened to many facets of Christianity ... Effortlessly ... And that has happened before to some people, like the Apostle Paul for example. But that doesn't mean that he didn't have to do something to maintain his fervor about his Faith, after his spirit was renewed.

Some people want to become perfect and complete all at once when they begin their Christian walk, and if that doesn't happen, they get discouraged ... But my friend, if you don't put anything into it ... You're not going to get much out. Patience is one thing that is very important. You know from experience that when you take your time and do a good thorough job when you are trying to achieve or create something, it turns out much better than if you try and rush it.

James 1:4
But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

I have an exciting new project for you that will help you renew your mind, which is a vital part of your Christian walk. Renewing your mind isn't something that you will ever complete ... Just like you can't sit down and eat one big meal to nourish you for your entire life ... You must feed your physical body every day, and you must nourish your spirit daily as well.

MIRACLE GROW

This new program is a way of showing God your dedication to being free of your problem. Itís also a way of goal setting. Youíve probably heard many times that itís a proven fact, when you write down your goals on paper, your chances of attaining those goals are tremendously higher than if you donít.

As we discussed in the TRINITY study ... You are made up into three individual parts yet are one entity. There is the Soul, the Spirit and the Body. Your MIRACLE GROW project will help you to strengthen your mind (soul), body, and spirit. In doing so, itís like a preventive maintenance program to avoid and resist new weeds from taking root and old problems from resurfacing in your life.





RENEWING YOUR MIND BIBLE STUDY
RENEW YOUR MIND BIBLE VERSE GIVES RENEW YOUR MIND IN THE BIBLE PROCEDURE


STRENGTHEN YOUR MIND

Your mind (the soul) controls your body (flesh) and your emotions (spirit), so strengthening your mind is a very important exercise. Your mind (Soul) tells your body (flesh) and your emotions (your spirit) to act and react to thoughts that your mind (Soul) has within.

Sounds strange huh?

Well lemme show you just how NORMAL it is.

Imagine if you will ...You are having an absolutely SON-derful day and suddenly you get a call from a friend who tells you that your friend of 20 years has died. You hear this news and it enters the mind (soul) ... You then THINK sad thoughts and immediately your emotions (spirit) are affected and you FEEL different than you did 30 seconds earlier.

Your body (flesh) changes in that you can feel weak and tears are created from your eyes. ALL this from one THOUGHT that entered your mind. It is a natural procedure within humans. This procedure within us works the same for all thoughts. Whether the thought be that of anger, jealousy, lust, fear, doubt or pride ... Or good thoughts such as love, understanding, forgiveness, faith and compassion ...

WHAT YOU BELIEVE IS WHAT YOU RECEIVE

Mark 9:23
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

Mark 11:24
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Matthew 21:21
Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.

THINK about this TRUTH.

BUT ... What if we controlled those thoughts that enter our mind (soul) ...
Would we not then be able to control our emotions (spirit) and our body (flesh)?

How do you strengthen your mind (soul)?

With knowledge of the TRUTH.

After removing the seeds within as we have been performing and filling your mind with TRUTH, it will help you discern good seeds from bad seeds (thoughts).

Now, just hold on here a minute ... Is this one of those new wave or scientific theories?

Where did we get this ideology from?

The answer is ...

THE BIBLE

We are told to ... Think GOOD thoughts.

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things
.

Paul is telling us that we should control our thoughts and THINK on these good thoughts.

The Bible CLEARLY reveals that we are to gain control and strengthen our minds.  

Remember?

Be transformed by Renewing your mind.

Put on the new man.

Romans 12:2
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. 

 Serve God with your mind.

Romans 7:25
I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

Renew your mind.

Ephesians 4:23-24
And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

Forget the past, think forward, be thus minded.

Philippians 3:13-15
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. 

Soooooooo, as you can see ...The Bible is clear.

We ARE commanded to renew our minds.

In the MIRACLE GROW project, youíll be strengthening the control your mind (soul) has over the body (flesh). Remember that the mind (soul) controls the body (flesh), so youíll be using your mind (soul) to control your body (flesh) also.


RENEWING YOUR MIND BIBLE STUDY & RENEW YOUR MIND BIBLE VERSE VOWS
RENEW YOUR MIND IN THE BIBLE ADVENTURE


STRENGTHEN YOUR SPIRIT

Again ... It is IMPORTANT for you to understand that your spirit is the part of you that listens and obeys the things that your mind (soul) tells it to feel.

Let me further elaborate on this topic ... You have many different emotions. Happiness, sorrow, anxiety, fear, excitement, love, anger, etc., etc. Your spirit holds these emotions only if you THINK thoughts which produce said emotions (spiritual reactions). 

Your spirit reacts with these feelings when your mind (soul) tells your spirit that something is sad as in the example given before, your spirit says ďgot itĒ and you become grieved in your spirit. Your mind changes your spiritual condition. What a gift, huh?

Many people think that the spirit and the soul are the same thing, but the Bible provided us with the amazing truth. Your mind is the soul, and it controls your spirit. Your soul (mind) is like your control center for your feelings and emotions. Get a leash on those puppies.

Make sure you have read this study (If you have not already) as to fully understand this TRUTH before continuing down our path. It will prove to be vital to your new life's growth.

WHO AM I

Your mind (soul) and your spirit can cause physical reactions too.

Tears, goose bumps, shaking, laughter as well as sexual changes.

All this just from a thought planted in your mind (soul) ...

These all happen because your mind (soul) told your spirit something and it caused the physical reaction.

You can control your spirit by changing your thoughts.

All you have to do, is send your spirit the signal for a different emotion by thinking differently. BUT ... Your mind (soul) has to believe it to be TRUTH.

It happens with you ... Or without your being aware of it.

Have you ever been thinking of a problem and then got busy with your daily agenda and all day long you felt this bad feeling of doom, though the day was going pretty good? It is that your mind (soul) did not resolve the earlier problem that you THOUGHT of, and your spirit is crying out because it is reacting to the problem that you were thinking of earlier.

Even though you are not consciously aware of the thought.

You may think that it will be difficult to control your emotions, by controlling your thoughts because some of these thoughts have been there for quite some time and are very strong, but with the MIRACLE GROW project ... You will be strengthening your mind with TRUTH, and you will find that TRUTH has a way of breaking the chains and setting you free.

Later on down THE PATH youíll discover that the Holy Spirit will be your guide in helping you with controlling your thoughts and thereby your spirit.


RENEW YOUR MIND RESPONSIBILITY
HOW TO CHANGE YOUR MIND QUICKLY

Before we move ahead into the exciting explanation of the SON-sational Miracle Grow Project, let us have a little chat about ... Personal Responsibility.

As you very well know, in any undertaking, there is some measure of responsibility involved. If you're a student in school, and you don't do the schoolwork or the homework, you begin to have problems. You have to write things down, and read things and repeatedly study things until they become ingrained in you, and then after that, you no longer need your notes or your books to look them up.

What about practical life endeavors? If you have a checking account, you have to fill out a deposit or withdrawal slip each time you make a transaction, or you may count on a computer or smart phone for your record keeping. If you want to keep your records straight, and not run into problems, you have to keep current, and you have to keep records regularly. If you think about it, just about everything in your life that you want to keep organized, requires documentation of one kind or another in order to avoid problems. Even a small thing like keeping your grocery list current may not seem like much, but it is a very important responsibility.

This documentation isn't mandatory, but without it, things get quite chaotic.

The same is true of music. If you were learning to play the guitar, for example ... You will have to look at your sheet music until you learn the notes, and you'll have to look at your fingers until you become so familiar with each chord that you can play them without looking. Then, once you memorize a song, you can play it without looking at your sheet music OR your fingers.

Now, you can read through your "Learn to Play the Guitar" book one time, and play each chord once or twice, and say that you've done the work, but if you don't practice regularly ...

You will never learn to play the guitar.

BUT ... If you DO practice and CHOOSE to get into it, you WILL play guitar and will NOT need the "Learn to Play the Guitar" book eventually because it is WITHIN you.

Why am I going through all this rigmarole?
(The word rigmarole is really a word that is documented in the dictionary!)

Because you're here for a reason.

One of those reasons is because God has led you here, and another reason is that other methods you have tried using to rid your life of your problem(s), have not worked.

Do NOT let the enemy of your soul try to discourage you.

Most rewarding things in life require responsibility. If you want to have good health, like it or not, you have to be responsible about what you consume. That pertains to your mental health as well as your physical health. If you want a nice home, you have to clean it. If you want a nice car, you have to maintain it. If you want a nice garden ... You get where I'm going with this ... Freedom of problems requires responsibility.

 The Miracle Grow project likewise requires responsibility. It works if you apply it, just like EVERY other worthwhile thing in life.

Most people get very defensive if anything looks like an endangerment to their free time ... However, the good news is ... The Miracle Grow Program offers not one, but two different, very flexible options, so that you may choose to customize it to your schedule and adjust it to perform it at your own pace. Like exercise for the mind and spirit.

My friend, what is it that causes a lot of problems in your life in the first place? Spending time with the world, instead of spending time with God. Some people call it free time ... But, we both know it always costs something in the long run. This Miracle Grow path is sort of a way to commit your plans to God and when you do this, your plans will succeed:

Proverbs 16:3
Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.

I also want you to understand that it IS Biblically sound.

Consider the Ten Commandments and all the statutes and ordinances that God gave to Moses.

God Himself first wrote the Ten Commandments on the first two tables of stone that Moses brought down the mountain, and told Moses to write down other laws of God for the people to follow. This DOCUMENTATION was studied until it became part of their normal routine.

Why?

Because organization brings peace to our lives.

1 Corinthians 14:33
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the Saints.

Why do you keep documentation?

Why do you refer to your cookbook when you cook?

Why do you use text books or references to learn or study something?

Why do you keep your receipts for your income taxes?

Because you believe that these things are necessary for organization ...

They minimize the problems that you could have if you didn't follow these methods. 

Now I ask you, if your worldly, menial, every day life tasks involve documentation that you don't question performing, wouldn't you want to do the same ... With even greater enthusiasm for your spiritual well being ... And wouldn't God appreciate that?

Remember, this little program is NOT mandatory, but take a little inventory of your daily routines or rituals and decide for yourself if you spend more time serving God, or the requirements of the world.

If you're serious about getting rid of your problems and habits, this is an awesome way to renew the mind as we are taught to do. 

There's one last thing I'd like to mention before we look into what's involved in the Miracle Grow Program.

King David was a Psalm writer ... He wrote poems, psalms, songs and letters to God. It wasn't mandatory that he write them down, but because of David's documentation, we are spiritually uplifted when we read his heartfelt, God inspired words.

And we know that God was very fond of David.


RENEWING YOUR MIND BIBLE STUDY CHART TAKEN FROM RENEW YOUR MIND BIBLE VERSE MESSAGES REVEALING RENEW YOUR MIND IN THE BIBLE SECRETS

The most important thing is to remember that during this Miracle Grow Step, you will find that you may not achieve your daily goals at times. Consider it like being reborn and as a baby you are learning to walk. You may stumble here and there but if you keep trying, you will reach your goals. Do not allow yourself to be discouraged.

During the early stages, you may need to adjust your goals to be sure they are attainable, yet you still want them to be a little bit of a challenge. Then, gradually adjust your program as time goes by and you adapt to the Miracle grow process.

Kind of like fertilizer in a garden, if you put too much or not enough, you won't get your desired results, so be sure and be patient as you begin this process and figure out what is the best balance for you and your lifestyle and daily requirements. This will all make sense in just a few moments.

IT IS NOT A JOB ... IT IS AN ADVENTURE.

You will need to CHOOSE to perform this daily, taking one day off per week for rest, as we are taught to do. (Honor the Sabbath Day.) This day can be either Saturday (the Jewish Sabbath) or Sunday (the Lord's day) ...

Now, remember I mentioned that the Miracle Grow program offers two options? Let's call them Option A and Option B. You are free to choose which one is best for your life, for your progress, for your schedule, and for your spiritual needs.

First, we will create a simple chart.

The first chart below is a SAMPLE MIRACLE GROW chart using Option A and the second chart is a SAMPLE of Option B.

Make your own chart similar to this with pencil and paper, or there is a link at the bottom of each sample chart where you can print a PDF of the chart.

Following the charts, we'll discuss how it works.

Again, if you do not have access to a printer, you can just create your own on a sheet of paper.


RENEWING YOUR MIND BIBLE STUDY
RENEW YOUR MIND BIBLE VERSE WITH RENEW YOUR MIND IN THE BIBLE INSTRUCTIONS

Read all the instructions first to make sure you don't miss anything.

There are 10 categories for Option B per page which means you need 10 columns for said categories. For Option A, you will need 5 columns.
We will talk about the categories in a little bit.

Add a column at far left of page for the date and a column at the far right for the daily score, or POINTS.

This means your page will have 12 columns total for Option B, and 7 columns total for Option A.

Fill in the dates along the left hand column.

Along the top row of each area, you will write in the activities that you choose to do. On the printable charts just write your activities right over the grey font that says "Fill in activity here".

As you complete an activity each day, you write YES in the column underneath it corresponding with the date. We illustrated this in green font.

For the activities that you donít accomplish,

write a big red NO in the box. 

At the end of each day, total up your points for each separate area and write the number in the column on the right where it says ďPoints.Ē

The grading system is simple ... For each activity that you accomplish, you will give yourself 10 points for Option B and 20 points for Option A. There are a possible 100 points per day. At the end of each week, add up the six days and divide it by six and that is your week's average.

100 = A+
90-99 = A
80-89 = B
70-79 = C
60-69 = D
Below 60 = F

You can also add up the points at the end of the week and write them in the row at the bottom of each area where it says ďAverageĒ to see your weekly grade.

You can do monthly totals as well if you like.

Just add all totals and divide by the amount of days.

(Excluding your Sabbath day off)

FREE

NOTE:  Everyone knows that life is not particularly cooperative all the time. Therefore, IN ADDITION to your Sabbath days off, allow yourself 3 days each month as FREE DAYS when you can excuse yourself from your activities with no penalty on your grade. If you're sick, or can't find time because of unexpected circumstances, or whatever the reason, this is the time to take a FREE day.

PSSSSSSST

Here is another allowable thing concerning your Miracle Grow activities. If you do any of your Miracle Grow activities on a Sabbath or a FREE day, they may be carried over to the next day. In fact, if you want to get several days ahead because you anticipate that you won't be able to do your Miracle Grow activities because of a foreseen conflict in your schedule, you may do that too. Perhaps you're expecting out of town company or you have to take a business trip or are going out of town on vacation, these are times when you may choose to get ahead. When you do this, don't neglect God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit on those FREE days. He still exists in your life, even when time does not allow for certain other things.

PLEASE TAKE SPECIAL NOTE OF THE NEXT PARAGRAPH

MIRACLE GROW is flexible, because you can change your activity topics whenever you want to. If you feel like a certain activity is too difficult or time consuming to accomplish every day, you can adjust it, or create a more reasonable activity. In addition, as you overcome a certain problem or habit, you can remove it from your Miracle Grow chart and add a new one that you want to overcome. You could even have a "miscellaneous" activity that you change each day, for example ... Your body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit, so you could designate an activity that rotates between doing different things that keep your body healthy ... Just keep in mind that you are doing this to make yourself spiritually healthy, not attractive to the world.

Be fair. If quitting smoking is one of your activities and you conquer this, it wouldn't be fair to keep 'no smoking' as an activity forever.

If you only accomplish part of an activity, then go ahead and give yourself whatever percentage you feel is fair.

If you ever find yourself dreading your Miracle Grow activities, something needs to be adjusted. It is meant to be uplifting and spiritually edifying.

Set goals ... Set a specific reward for yourself if you achieve your goals, and promise yourself that the only way you will claim your reward is if you earn it. Make your reward something you really want to do or have, and something that will encourage you to continue on your journey to freedom from your problem(s).


RENEWING YOUR MIND BIBLE STUDY & RENEW YOUR MIND BIBLE VERSE TRAINING WITH RENEW YOUR MIND IN THE BIBLE PLANNER

I can give you some ideas for activities, but remember, these are examples only. You will custom design your MIRACLE GROW project for your individual needs and goals.

Your MIRACLE GROW project should be challenging AND enjoyable.
 

STRENGTHEN YOUR MIND

Pray 3 times a day.

Read a chapter of the Bible.

Read 5 Psalms.

Read one chapter of Proverbs.

Read a spiritual book for ___ minutes.

Read the Daily Word.

Do a Bible crossword puzzle.

Play a Christian board game.

(You can also include your STEPPING STONES too, until youíre finished, or go back through them again if you like.)

 

STRENGTHEN YOUR BODY

Fast (or abstain from a habit you have) for ___ hours (unless Doctor requires you to do so).

Be completely still and quiet with your eyes closed for ___ minutes. This is a good time to invite the Holy Spirit to commune with you.

Break a habit, by only having a certain amount of cigarettes, coffee, tea, soda, etc., per day, reducing slowly as the weeks or months progress.

Cut back on a food item that you know is bad for you ... you can call it a snackrifice! ☺

Stop cussing.

Devote ___ minutes a day toward making a real garden. (While you work on this, focus your thoughts on how the garden is spiritually like you. Go ahead and pull some weeds while youíre at it, and talk TRUTH with yourself.)

Do a good deed for someone that takes physical effort.

Exercise ... Specific exercise programs you create.

Weight loss program.

Volunteer for a worthy cause.
A couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon could give you points.

 

STRENGTHEN YOUR SPIRIT

Listen to some Christian music, concentrating on the words. I encourage you to listen to spiritual music whenever you can, but for your points, isolate this activity so you can give it your full attention.

Spend time alone with the Holy Spirit. (Actually provide a seat for Him.)

Attend a Bible study or other church function. (Again, this can cover as many points as you think is fair.)

Sing a hymn - singing comes from the spirit.

Light a candle. (Fire is a symbol of the Holy Spirit.)

Praising comes from the spirit, too. Spend 5 minutes praising God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

Write a psalm to God.

Again, these are only examples. Customize your program so that your goals are attainable. Your program should be reasonable to attain. The last thing you want to do is set up an impossible program. At the same time, keep the leap of faith factor in there, and count on the Holy Spirit to help you attain goals that you ask Him to help you with.

If you find that you don't have a large block of time at any given time of the day, break up your Miracle Grow activities into several different segments and that may make your goals easier.

I encourage you to replace your activities from time to time. Not all of them at once, but one or a couple at a time. If you use the same fertilizer all the time, your plants get used to it and they donít grow as well as they did when you first started. Give yourself variety. Keep it exciting. You should never grow bored with it. If you do, change the activities that need perking up.

Before any given month is over, you should have your MIRACLE GROW chart for the next month made and ready to go. It shows God your eagerness to succeed for Him, and when your new month begins, you wonít have to make a chart when you can be starting your activities.

If the first of the month falls on a Tuesday, start your Miracle Grow week on Tuesday for that month. You will have partial weeks left at the end of each month except in February of non-leap years, so just average your weekly score of that partial week by dividing your total points by the number of days in that partial week. Then start afresh EACH month. A fresh start is always a great and encouraging feeling that motivates everyone.

MIRACLE GROW is a spiritual offering to God. You are sacrificing your time to give it to HIM. He sacrificed His only Sonís life for you, now youíre giving Him back a piece of your life by sacrificing the selfish thoughts and deeds as to spend more time with the Holy Spirit..


RENEW YOUR MIND SUMMARY
HOW TO CHANGE YOUR MIND CONCLUSION


Another way of looking at this is to compare your time dedicated to the Lord like an analogy to antibiotics. The Lord is not an antibiotic ... You can't just take a prescribed amount of Him and be all better forever. You have to take him all the time, more like insulin! You need Him in your blood ... Steady doses, or you're sure to have problems.

Remember ...

By RENEWING your mind, body, and spirit, it is a way of glorifying HIM.

Romans 12:2
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.

Another thing MIRACLE GROW does is change your lifestyle. A hard thing to do when you have a problem is to stop thinking about it. Youíre setting new goals for yourself now, and if you ponder on your problem, keeping it in your memory, you may be keeping it from going away. Release it into Godís hands ... GIVE IT TO GOD ... He wants you to, you know.

LET GO AND LET GOD!

LET GO (of your problem), AND LET GOD (remove it)!

The Apostle Paul said,

Philippians 3:13-14
I donít consider myself to have achieved, but this one thing I do, forgetting the things in the past, and reaching forward, I strive for the goal, for the prize of the calling of God in Christ Jesus.
