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. Romans 12:2
" Be ye transformed". If you want to change something in your life then you'll have to change the way you think. Sometimes we say that we act or speak before we think but we really can't. Your thought process is what controls your words and your behavior. If you want to change your life, you have to completely change the way you think. Transformation begins in the mind. Paul said
"For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace." (Romans 8:6) If you think death, you will talk death and if you talk death then you are not only killing yourself but those that are around you. If you want life and peace then you will have to think life and peace. Do you want change the mood in your house? You'll have to change the mood in your mind. God created the earth by speaking, what are you creating with your words? We are created in the image of God, so what we say, we have and we speak what we think. The only way you can change your thinking is to re-program your mind with the Bible. You may need to change your intake, the Information that you allow into your ears and eyes. What are you putting into your mind that is controlling your mood and attitude? "Take heed what you hear"(Mark 4:24)
We are accountable to God for what we hear. What's the first thing you allow into your eye gate and ear gate in the mornings? Is it the hopeless, negative news broadcast or the powerful, pure, life changing Word of God? Take control of your life, it starts with your mind or someone else will continue controlling you. Who's in charge at your house and what is God's will for your life? If you want to know the will of God, you'll have to renew your mind to find that out and knowing God's will brings spiritual peace into your life.
