The imagination is apart of your being. It too has to be cleaner, needs clean up too. You can be responsible in your thought life.
Honestly the past months been praying and asking and washing of the word, renewal in mind. Which is neat that Sunday had touched on what I doing with the sanctification. Sanctification is a cleaning up in the power & renewal of Holy Spirit.
What really been doing in past months is taking every thought captain and bring to obedience of the Word of God, Jesus. I have specifically been speak to God, to clean my imagination with the Blood Jesus Christ and wash in Word: bring to remembrance your Scripture and I declare it over my imagination, renewal of the mind and work of the cross regeneration. Renounce any agreement or covenant with that thought. I to choose replace it with God’s truth. Thank you Jesus for your grace and work of the cross.
Becoming aware of “what is that thought”? Awareness of that there are stuff that lays subconscious and needs intercepted.
Now I have to share that its becomes more able identified, discernment of thoughts that are accusations of the brothen, the devil. As well as bad thoughts from rejection or hurts. How do identified thought that are not from God cause don’t align with his word or God’s character . So in day, I seriously say that’s not God’s and that not mind I reject that thought.
Seriously see how some of those thoughts brings a captivity of me if I don’t take authority over them first and place those thoughts into check.
Sunday it really popped out was “…and be renewed in the spirit of your mind…”(Ephesians 4:24). It didn’t just say on you’re mind but spirit of your mind.
I dear to say your imagination thoughts are apart of your spirit. And that need checking and to keep on the helmet of salvation, and washing of the word. Where false beliefs/thoughts can be expose in light of Gods word. For Gods word is lamp to my feet and a light my path.(Psalms 119:105)
Romans 12:1-2 NKJV
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
“….not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His MERCY HE SAVED US, though the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,” (Titus 3:5)
Titus 3:5-7 NKJV
not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
The cleaning of the believer from shame and guilt. My challenging thought today is anyone to ask God to really reveal himself to you and ask for Holy Spirit to teach you his word. Be open to renewal which may include trashing old thinking or even growing up in a church trash doctine/practices that does align with the WHOLE COUNCIL OF GOD’S WORD.
In this found some ugly thoughts of pride too. I ask for forgiveness of pride and surrendered it to cross of Jesus Christ.
