Reprogram Your Mind

Reprogram Your Mind

“Let God transform…the way you think.”          Ro 12:2 NLT

Behind everything you do—there’s a thought! So if you’re serious about changing your life, you must change how you think. That’s not easy, and it doesn’t happen instantly. Picture yourself in a boat with the automatic pilot set to go in a certain direction, then you suddenly decide to go somewhere else. You have two options: (1) Willpower. Grab the wheel and force it to go where you want; by sheer willpower, overcome the autopilot. But you’ll feel constant resistance. Your arms will get tired, and when you let go of the wheel, guess what? The boat will go the way it’s programmed to go. Getting the idea? That’s what happens when you try to change your life through willpower: “I’ll force myself to quit drinking, or cheating, or overeating, etc.” Your willpower can only produce short-term change, but it creates constant stress because you haven’t dealt with the root cause and reprogrammed your mind. The change doesn’t feel natural so eventually you give up, revert to your old patterns and say, “I guess this is just the way I am. I’ll never change.” (2) God’s power. There is a better way! The Bible says: “Let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.” Change always begins in your mind! The way you think determines the way you feel, and the way you feel determines the way you act. You say, “How can I change the way I think?” By programming your mind each day with God’s Word. “How can a…man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word” (Ps 119:9 NKJV).
