Freshly Renewed. Your mind must remain freshly renewed with the Word of God. We have been meditating on how important revelation is when operating in the supernatural for quite a few days now. But, revelation without a renewed mind won’t work. Why? Because, since it cannot figure it out, your natural mind will rebel against any revelation that God gives you.
Our supernatural God cannot come naturally. He is going to come to you out-of-the-ordinary. So, your mind will have to be working in-sync with God’s “supernatural-ness” in order for you to receive what God’s Spirit is saying to you.
Isaiah 55:8 says, For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. God is talking about our natural minds, here. In the natural, your ways and thoughts are not like God. Again, God is not natural.
However, in Ephesians 4:23, He tells us that we can be renewed in the spirit of our minds and Philippians 2:5 says, Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
So, as a child of God, it is possible to think like Him. The Spiritual aspect of our minds, the part that we renew with the Word of God, is actually the mind of God. Therefore, when He reveals to you how He is going to supernaturally work on your behalf and gives you instruction, you can receive what He says without your natural mind interrupting with its unbelief.
Romans 12:2 – 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.
