“The unchangeable mind”
Rom 12:1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
NLT Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.
3 For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith.
1 Cor 13:9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things.
THE THOUGHTS OF TRUTH ARE THE INGREDIENTS FOR CHANGE!
REJOICING, PRAYER and THINKING ARE SPIRITUAL – MENTAL HEALTH INSTRUCTIONS…
NAS phil 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!
5 Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near.
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, (NLT FIX YOUR THOUGHTS ON) whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell (THINK) on these things.
WE CAN CONTROL WHAT WE THINK ON!
IF YOU HAVE LOST PEACE YOU ARE THINKING ON THE WRONG THING (Is 26:3)
YLT Isaiah 26:3 “An imagination supported Thou fortifiest peace–peace! For in Thee it is confident.
4 Trust ye in Jehovah for ever, For in Jah Jehovah [is] a rock of ages, (EVERLASTING ROCK) (Unchanging)
GW “With perfect peace you will protect those whose minds cannot be changed because they trust you”
The mind stayed on him… is unchangeable
philip 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
1 Cor 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, 4 for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses (PULLING DOWN STRONGHOLDS). 5 We are destroying speculations (CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS) and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,
Col 3:15 Let the peace of Christ rule (UMPIRE) in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to god.
Prov 16:3 Commit your works to the Lord and your plans will be established.
Kjv “Thy thoughts shall be established”
Prov 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.
