Do you wish to change the happenings around you? Can you make a lasting impact in this world? The answer is yes! You can set the pace that others will follow with time. But it all starts with the renewing of your mind. This article emphasizes the power of changing your mind to change your world.
"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 NKJV
"For "who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?" But we have the mind of Christ." (I Corinthians 2:16 NKJV
"Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." (Genesis 1:26-27 NKJV
Many times people look at the happenings around them and wish they can do something about it. Then they stop at wishing, instead of finding out how they can do it. The good news is that God has the answer.
Man was made in the image of God, according to His likeness. We are made to be co-creators with God. God created the world by His words (Hebrews 11:3
) and the creation is still obeying the laws governing it. Adam was operating in the realm of God until sin was found in him and he became ordinary.
However, when Christ came He paid the price for our restoration to the original state, that whosoever believes in Him and receives Him also receives this restoration. Human mind is exchanged for Christ's mind at redemption (1 Corinthians 2:16
). At new birth your mind changes to divine mind / mind of Christ. You receive the ability to break off the human limits and operate like the god you are (Psalm 82:6
Now, the potential of your new mind will not materialize until you renew it through the word of God that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Christ's mind in you will not work until you know and are ready to conform to His perfect plan for you.
The word of God is the master plan for everyone's destiny. You need to locate yourself in this plan to change the world. There is nothing impossible with God (Luke 18:27
) and with anyone who believes (Mark 9:23
). With the mind of Christ activated in you by the word of God, you will be bold to dare the undareable, walk through a troop and leap over the world(Psalm 18:29
) to establish the perfect plan of God for you and the people (Jeremiah 1:5
As a man thinks in his heart so is he now (Proverbs 23:7
). The word of God in you empowers you to think like Jesus and so be like Him. The world is waiting for manifestation of the sons of God (Romans 8:19
). It is level of God's word in you and that you allow to rule your life, that determines the level of exploits you will do.
Apostle Paul received Jesus and His words; his mind was exchanged for Christ's. And with that strength, he did great exploits; to the point that his adversaries said he turned the world upside down (Acts 17:6
In conclusion, the Lord desires to see men and women who will partner with Him to see this world changed. It takes changing your limited mind for divine mind. Therefore, get your mind replaced with Christ's mind, activate it by the word of God and see what God will use you to accomplish.Ngozi Nwoke Is a teacher and a counselor.
