There is a process that must take place in order to develop your faith to the level it needs to be, this process is called “renewing your mind”. It's the part of God’s plan that we participate in so we can walk uprightly before the Lord... and this process requires change. How many of you know that change is not change until you have changed? Renewing our mind requires making quality decisions in our lives that line up with the Word of God. So its like removing old software and inputting new software, God said in (Romans 12: 1-2) "Don’t be conformed to this world (or in other words... "its way of thinking") but be transformed (changed) by the entire renewal of your mind" A renewed mind is evidenced by change, renewing the mind is simply this... for example, replace the poverty mentality with God’s total life prosperity or replace the acceptance of being sick with knowing that by his stripes you were healed (Isa 53:5) or replace questionable thoughts of if there's an after life with the acceptance of the free gift of Jesus' substitution on your behalf to obtain eternal life!
With the renewing of the mind comes a surety that we have been made the righteousness of God by receiving Jesus' Righteousness, it is not enough for us to just believe in or about something...but we're to walk and act out God’s Word daily in our lives by faith (2 Cor 5:7). By putting "action" to our faith we then will please our Heavenly Father (Heb 11:6). Renewing our mind is not a one time thing, but it a life process. I am so happy and full of joy for what the Lord has done, what He is doing now, and what He is going to do! Being result orientated on our part is "NOT" about working my righteousness or striving to be the best Christian... no no no!! He has already done it ALL for us, He has already made us perfect on the inside, He has already made provision for us through Jesus Christ... all we do is rest in the grace of HIS WORDS and receive. By keeping God's Word at the fore front of our minds and agendas and a constant fellowship with the Holy Spirit we can achieve all the things God has called us to do, live how he wants us to live... a blessed life, that we can be a blessing in the lives of others.
