Finding Freedom From Anxiety, Fatigue and Food Sensitivities: Signs of a Renewed Mind

Jan 23, 2024

Signs of a Renewed Mind:

In our Christian journey, we often hear the call to have a renewed mind, as mentioned by the apostle Paul in Romans 12:2: "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind." But what does it mean to truly experience this renewal in the context of our daily struggles, especially when dealing with challenges like anxiety, fatigue, and food sensitivities? It goes beyond mere words and requires a genuine transformation in our thoughts, emotions, and alignment with God's Word. Today, let's explore five signs that can serve as a litmus test to assess where you stand on this ongoing  journey of renewing your mind.

  1. Living in Expectant Hope:

A renewed mind is marked by an unwavering sense of hope, an assurance that the impossible is entirely reasonable, and the belief that a miracle is just around the corner. It's a mindset that defies the limitations of the world and leans into the boundless possibilities of God. This hope isn't rooted in wishful thinking but in a deep trust in God's character and promises.

Consider the story of Abraham and Sarah. In their old age, when having a child seemed impossible, God promised them descendants as numerous as the stars. Despite the natural impossibility of the situation, they believed God, and Sarah conceived in her old age (Genesis 18:10-14). Their story exemplifies living in expectant hope.

  1. Walking by Faith, Not by Sight:

To have a renewed mind means walking by faith, not by sight. It's about living in complete surrender to God while standing firmly on His promises. This sign speaks to the ability to trust God even when circumstances seem bleak. It's about recognizing that God's ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts higher than our thoughts (Isaiah 55:8-9).

Consider the example of Peter walking on water (Matthew 14:22-33). When he focused on Jesus and stepped out in faith, he walked on water. However, when he shifted his focus to the storm around him, he began to sink. Walking by faith means fixing our eyes on Jesus, regardless of the storms that may surround us.

  1. Speaking Life:

A renewed mind acknowledges the incredible power of words. It understands that life and death are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). Those with a renewed mind choose their words wisely, speaking life, encouragement, and truth.

Think about how Jesus spoke to the woman caught in adultery (John 8:1-11). While others were ready to condemn her, Jesus spoke words of forgiveness and life: "Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more." Speaking life means following Jesus' example by extending grace and hope through our words.

  1. Seeing the Best in Self and Situation:

Having a renewed mind involves seeing the best in yourself and your circumstances. It's about loving yourself, rejoicing in weakness, and trusting that God has provided everything needed for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). Even in the midst of challenges, those with a renewed mind believe that God can redeem every situation for His glory and their good.

Consider the life of Joseph in the Old Testament. Sold into slavery by his own brothers and unjustly imprisoned, he could have become bitter. However, he chose to see the best in every situation, trusting that God's purpose would prevail. Ultimately, he rose to a position of great influence and was able to save his family and many others from famine (Genesis 50:20).

  1. Living in Peace:

A renewed mind fosters a sense of peace that transcends understanding (Philippians 4:7). It means focusing on what is going well, resisting the grip of worry and fear, and anticipating the best possible outcomes. It's an inner tranquility that comes from a deep awareness of God's presence and sovereignty.

Consider the disciples in a boat during a fierce storm (Mark 4:35-41). While they panicked, Jesus was asleep, demonstrating complete peace amid chaos. When He calmed the storm, He asked them, "Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?" Living in peace involves trusting God's control over life's storms and resting in His unwavering presence.

Final Thoughts:

A renewed mind is marked by living in expectant hope, walking by faith, speaking life, seeing the best in oneself and situations, and living in peace. These signs are not mere ideals but attainable realities for those who continually renew their minds through the transformative power of God's Word and His Spirit.

As we journey on the path of renewing our minds, let us remember that it's not a one-time event but a way of life—a daily commitment to align our thoughts and emotions with the truth of God's Word. By doing so, we step into a life filled with hope, faith, positivity, and the deep peace that only God can provide.
