God knows that the process of renewing our minds can be difficult, that is why He is there to help us. “Each day we have the ability to choose the focal point of our minds”. (Sarah Young). Bring every wandering thought to Him. Genesis 1:27 says that God created us in His own image. when satan sees that we are living more like Christ, he will try to “attack our minds and tell us that we’re failures, that we’re not good enough, that God doesn’t love us…the list goes on and on. Thankfully, God’s Word tells us just what to do in a situation like this. Second Corinthians 10:5 tells us to take every thought captive and into obedience to God. So when the devil tries to lie to you, go to the Word and find the truth that refutes that lie”. (Joyce Meyers). Direct your thoughts to God and allow Him to renew of minds. God will keep our minds in peace as we focus on him throughout the day.
