Renew Your Mind With God

Life can be hectic sometimes and it is easy to break faith in God and get overwhelmed. Luckily for believers, God has instituted the principle of faith. Faith allows us to pass a lot of our burdens on God.

Matthew 11:28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

God. To make sure that you refresh your mind and not get distracted it is vital to:

1. Read the Bible regularly.

The main purpose of reading the bible is to understand the will of God and also to understand His guiding principles for living righteously.

The Word of God can serve as a reminder when you are confronted by dissuading thoughts from listening to popular opinions or doubters.

It doesn’t please God to repent today only to return to the bad ways the next day. It is not very helpful to keep backsliding. It can be very hard to keep faith without

2. Pray daily or as often as you can. Regular prayer keeps the communication link between you and God steady. Don’t lose focus, because the temptation is always around the corner. Prayer that is regular can help to bring you closer and closer to God. It gives a refreshing feeling. It certainly energizes the spirit. Prayer also gives us the opportunity to acknowledge our shortfalls before God. No matter how good you think you are, you must by default see yourself as a sinner who needs constant mercy. It shows humbleness.

Romans 3:23 reminds us that we are all sinners, even if we can see apparent wrongdoing in our personal lives. So it is advisable that when you pray, acknowledge that you are a sinner.

Hopefully and by God’s grace, you will become stronger in your faith and your mind more focused on your purpose.
