Now there are those that keep up with the latest technology. There are those that are going back to school to stay current regarding education. Then why not renew your spirit with the word of God daily? Do you love the word of God?
The devil is real. There is only one devil, but many demons. The devil works 24 hours a day and seven days a week. His work is to deceive you. His work is to attack your mind. His work is to make you think that you can not improve in life. Theses are all good reasons to renew your spirit with the word of God daily? Romans 12:2, James 4:7 Resist the devil.
It is important to renew your spirit, because everyone is not your friend. Unfortunately, there are those that might be jealous of you or even just dislike the way you look. They may not even know you, but they have decided the instant they met you, that they did not like you. Why not develop a personal relationship with God? That is what God wants. Hebrew 13:5. We might leave God, but God is always there and never leaves us.
By renewing your spirit with the word of God, you will be able to discern the different types of spirits. You will be able to develop healthy relationships that will edify you and not tear you down or destroy you. Discernment is very important. How many times have you seen friends being taken advantage of and attempted to warn them, but the friends were just blind to the situation? God wants the right relationship with you. If you want friends, you must show yourself friendly, this includes myself. Proverbs 18:24
There is a spirit of hatred. There are those that are so bitter, because of past events. There are those that continue to relive past horrible events that just continues to feed their hatred. Continuing to do this is not good. This hatred can consume you and eventually kill you. It is just not good for you emotionally or physically. It basically murders you. Wouldn’t it be a lot easier to possibly forgive another? This is therapeutic for you to do so. This is also an excellent way for you to heal also. It definitely takes a matured person to forgive. It allows you to move on, instead of being stuck in that one place and replaying the sordid event or events over and over again.
4. Your Mind
Just as we continue to take care of our bodies, we should do the same with our mind. Sometimes we can be our worst enemy. We need to change our way of thinking. Have you noticed that there are times you may be doing a project and all of a sudden other thoughts may just pop into your head? Sometimes they might be negative such as “My nose is too big.” Possibly you have thought to yourself, “If I had the money that John Bob has, I could do this or do that.” Well when that happens you can renew your spirit by asking yourself, “What does the word of God say about that thought?” It is then time to search the scriptures and say what God says about it. 1 Samuel 16:7, Philippians 4:13.
5. God’s Spirit
God is Love. Love covers a multitude of sins. 1st Peter 4:8. By renewing your spirit daily, your spirit can bear witness with God’s spirit. This is the ultimate spirit, because no matter what happens and no matter what it may look like, God is in control. God is the creator. Galatians 5:22-23 Attributes of God’s spirit. Proverbs 16:9, Psalm 118:8 Trust in God.
Why Renew Your Spirit? There may be times in your life when there is so much turmoil and drama around you that you may feel you cannot go on. Even through all of the chaos, trials, and the storms you may encounter in your life, renewing your spirit will give you that inner peace and comfort that nothing else can. This inner peace can help you sustain even though your surroundings may be full of turmoil. John 14:27
Have there been times that you have been hurting so badly inside? Possibly from a divorce, loss of a loved one, someone lied on you, or possibly someone betrayed you? That pain that you feel inside is real. You may have felt no one can understand how you feel. Possibly you have asked the question, “Why me?” Renewing your spirit can help you deal with the pain and eventually resolve it. You do not have to live daily with the pain that you have. You have a choice. Psalm 147:3
Why Renew Your Spirit? It will help guide you in training your children. Some parents have had to be mother and father to their children. There have been single mothers and fathers that have done a great job training their children. There have been single mothers and fathers that have had children to become great lawyers, doctors, educators, and very responsible producing adults.
Renewing your spirit will aide you as a single parent or a married couple. It will help you in directing and guiding your children through life. Children in this generation are faced with much more complex problems at earlier ages. Since the internet has evolved they are open to much more deceptiveness, because they love to chat and might not always know who they are really chatting with. Proverbs 22:6
