A Renewed Mind
Even though I was born again at the age of 12, I was convinced that I was a failure. Over the years condemnation and guilt followed me, and at times depression would consume me. Little did I realize that my thought patterns were holding me in bondage. I blamed God for my mental state, and thought that I was a mistake. But God came to my rescue when I called on the name of the Lord. Reading the Bible as God’s love letter to me I realized that I was thinking wrong about myself. I quit saying I can’t, and began to say I can do all things through Christ you strengthens me. I said: Greater is He that is in me than He that is in the world. My life was changed. The Bible is God’s love letter to you, and He will change your life from defeat and failure to victory and success!
In the name of Jesus, I refuse to be conformed to this age, [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs]. In the name of Jesus I bind my mind to transformation by the [entire] renewal of my mind with its new ideals and its new attitude. Holy Spirit, thank You for helping me prove [for myself] God’s good and acceptable and perfect will, even the thing, which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for me].
