Renew Your Mind, Renew Your Life

Renew Your Mind – Renew Your Life

Our beliefs are massively important.

That’s something I learned the hard way.

A lot of my friends who didn’t know me 7 or 8 years ago find it very funny when I tell them I used to be manically depressed.

In fact I wish that was all that was wrong with me.

I had a list as long as your arm of things that weren’t going well for me in life.

  • My circumstances
  • My sins
  • My eating disorder
  • My sickness
  • My friends
  • My church
  • My job
  • My debts
  • My leaders
  • My connection to God
  • My family
  • My studies
  • My relationships
  • My stunted growth
  • My addiction to pain killers
  • My depression

Like I said – I had a list.

But one day…

I was spending time with the Lord and He said something to me that changed my life forever.

Something I didn’t want to hear.

He said:
[Tweet “Your “problems” are not your problem… Your beliefs about your “problems” are your problem.”]

He went on to tell me that if I could change my beliefs in 4 different areas to align with His beliefs then I would experience absolute transformation.

  1. What you believe about God
  2. What you believe about yourself
  3. What you believe about others
  4. What you believe about your circumstances

The journey began

That day I started myself on a journey of mind renewal.

Romans 12:2 says that we are transformed by the renewal of the mind.

The word repentance in the Greek, the word Metanoia, literally means “change mind”.

The key to every issue in my life was it needed me to repent. It needed me to stop looking at the situation from my perspective and start looking at it from God’s.

Since then my life has radically changed for the better – very few things on that list apply to me any more.

Sure – I am far from perfect! But I am daily seeing transformation as I purpose myself to renew my mind. Asking God how he sees things and repenting.

So my question to you is, what do you have going on in your life that you need to see changed? How do you need to change your mind?

  1. This compliments well what I learned last night about how moldable the brain is with respect to habitual or addictive behaviors. Once one has become addicted to something it is chemically and scientifically impossible to break the addiction alone. Committed help is required to bring us to the change we seek. The information was very interesting.

    • Absolutely Bill – it’s often a cyclical thing too.

      By that I mean often people have chemical imbalances in the brain because they have a lot of negative and depressed thoughts.

      Which then cause more negative thinking and depression which cause chemical imbalances in the brain… etc. etc.

      There is the funny (but often too true) adage of “I eat because I’m fat and I’m fat because I eat.” These are the worst of mindsets to break because they have often become part of who we believe we are. But they can be broken!

      I often tell people go to war with your mind:

      If you need medical help – get it.
      If you need spiritual help – get it.
      If you need friends around you – get some.

      Do all you can to work on remoulding your mind.

      Thanks for sharing Bill!

    • No – what store are you looking on? Their are links above to the UK or US stores.

      I just discovered today that they won’t carry the physical copy in Canada and Canadian customers are limited to either the kindle copy or buying from the US store.

  2. Phil,

    Thanks so much for writing this. I really want to be transformed. I know God is at work in this but your devotion was so concise.

    Thanks so much for being so transparent.
