Topic: Mental Renovation Through The Scripture [Seeds of Destiny 9 June 2019 Devotional]
Light from Scripture makes you tell the devil, ‘Watch and see, I will be the first, the first to escape the chronic poverty in my family, the first to break the spell of marital delay by marrying on time; I will reach where my parents never reached, I will do what they could not do, I will achieve what they could never achieve.’
SCRIPTURE: I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:1-2.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your mentality can be renovated with light from Scriptures.
The Word of God is the fuel of faith; when you access God’s Word, you move in greater dimension of faith.
Previously, we saw that one thing you can do with the Word in order to walk in faith is to access relevant light from the Word.
Now, another thing you can do with the Word of God in order to walk in faith is to attune your thoughts to the light of the Scripture. This means, aligning your thought with light from the Scripture. Your mentality can be renovated with light from scriptures. Wash your mind or renew your mind with light from scripture (Romans 12:1-2).
It is important to know that the condition of the mind is one major challenge in life (2 Corinthians 10:3-5).
Negative imaginations may tell you that in your family lineage, people do not live up to forty years or that marriages do not succeed, but with the Word of God, you can cast down every imagination and thought that exalts itself above the knowledge of God. With God’s Word, you can bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
When you see relevant light from Scriptures, you reject the negative patterns in your life and family; you tell yourself that what happened to your ancestors or parents cannot happen to you. Light from Scripture makes you tell the devil, ‘Watch and see, I will be the first, the first to escape the chronic poverty in my family, the first to break the spell of marital delay by marrying on time; I will reach where my parents never reached, I will do what they could not do, I will achieve what they could never achieve.’
My counsel is, let the Scripture occupy your thoughts. Meditate on God’s Word continually.
Remember this: Your mentality can be renovated with light from Scriptures.
- Let the Word of God occupy, guide and regulate your thoughts.
- Make the meditation of the Word of God a consistent practice. Meditate on God’s Word habitually.
PRAYER: I ask for the grace and discipline to meditate on Your Word always for the total transformation of my life and destiny, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Scripture’s assignment is to intensify your conviction. It is to solidify your faith. It is to enlarge or increase your conviction and bring you to higher realms of exploits. Culled from MAKING FULL PROOF OF MINISTRY by Dr Paul Enenche.
