And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind – Romans 12:2
To be conformed means to be “fashioned alike”. Therefore not to be conformed to this world means not to be fashioned according to its way of doing things. Having being born again; your spirit is being recreated; you became a brand new person, a new species of being without a past (2 Corinthians 5:17). However, though your spirit is born anew, your mind isn’t renewed just yet.
This explains why though you’re born again, you notice that some negative thoughts and ideas you used to have before occasionally come to your mind. Thoughts of weakness, wickedness, sickness and sin may dominate your thinking if your mind is not renewed by the Word. To overcome this, you’ll have to meditate on (think, mutter, speak, roar…) the Word of God daily. Feed your spirit and mind with the Word. Adjust and renew your thinking with the Word.
When your mind is renewed with the Word, you’ll think God’s thoughts and His opinions and ideas will dominate your mind. So determine to meditate on the Word, not just today, but every day. Through meditation, the Word goes through your mind into your spirit, and new thoughts, words would well up in you and dominate your mind. Then your mindset will be transformed from that failure, weakness, sickness and defeat into one of success, victory, health, prosperity and greatness.
