Owning and Enjoying the Sound Mind

Now we will reflect for a few moments on the type of mind, the sound mind, which God desires for those who have been remade in His Image. That is to say the mind of the regenerated Christian.

Needless to say, it is a mind that has been renewed as Scripture calls for in Romans 12:2 – “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.” It is must for such a transformation to take place that we spend time reading and studying Gods Word and in private, solitude times of prayer and reflection with God. To know God is too communicate with Him and spend time with Him. While being in His presence and in His Word we are renewed by the power of both.

Once that transformation begin to take hold of us, despite the events of life that might try to strike fear within us we will find ourselves basking in the peace of mind that God so longs for us to enjoy. Like Romans 8:6, tells us a new type of life begins to take hold and those old fears begin to slip away. – Romans 8:6 “For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” This type of peace is very difficult to explain and words seem only to simplify something so grand and so wonderful. Yet, here is my meager attempt. This type of peace gives you a deep inner feeling that no matter what takes place, everything is going to be all right in the end. Therefore, fear has no real place in the life of the Believer with this type of understanding of peace!

May God be with each one of you and grant you the love, power, and sound mind He longs for each of us to enjoy, allowing the peace of God to engulf your life.

This concludes our study on fear and I look to your input and ask you to share with me what it is you would like to look into or study next. Please email me privately or leave a comment on the blog with your input about what you desire a richer understanding of next.
