Repentance: The traditional understanding is asking for forgiveness of wrong doing (sin). But it’s actually a changing of the mind. God gives us a place to repent when he reveals his way and his mind about things. We are to change the way we think to getting a clear understanding on how God want us to think on any and every subject. We are to get the mind of God and thereby have a renewed mind.
This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy one of Israel says: In Repentance and rest is your Salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength.
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.
We Renew our minds by examining our thoughts on any and all subject matters.
Then seek to get the mind of Christ by.
1: Spending quality time in His word and agreeing with what the bible says, also trading our beliefs and thoughts for the truth of God’s word regarding who we really are. If we do this then the specific point or points God is targeting in us to make the change to the person he really wants us to be in him will begin to form. Then we can release all beliefs of limitation, lack, and fear that ways of the world has taught us . The renewing of the mind will help us develop “Right Thinking”, this is good, because in order for that to happen we must know what to think right about.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world . but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is , his good, pleasing and perfect will.
“Be transformed” The process of being transformed is God’s job to do, our job is to Let Him.
Ephesians 4: 22-24
You were taught , with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires;
To be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
This is where we come into all that is ours in accordance to the plan and purpose God has. We are restored from our limited selves to our divine selves. We go from seeing our smallness to walking in our greatness. The lack or insufficiency ends. Then we begin to walk in, and start recognizing the abundance and favor shown to us. We stop talking out of the ignorance of not knowing to having the awareness that allows us to walk in the outcomes dictated by our expectancy, declarations and authority. we are restored to our rightful place as Heirs, Creators, and powerful, victorious people.
Deuteronomy 30: 3 -10 (read whole chapter)
God Your God
Will restore everything you lost; He’ll have compassion on you ; He’ll come back and pick up the pieces from all the places where you were scattered. No matter how far away you end up, God Your God , will get you out of there and bring you back to the land your ancestors once possessed. It will be yours again. He will give you a good life. He will cut away the thick calluses on your heart and your children’s heart freeing you to love him with your whole heart and soul and live, Really live. The LORD your GOD will inflict all these curses on your enemies and those who hate you, who were out to get you. And you will make a new start , listening obediently to God, keeping all his commandments that I’m commanding you today. God , your God , will outdo himself making things go well for you: you’ll have babies get calves , grow crops, and enjoy an all around good life.
Yes, God will start enjoying you again, making things go well for you just as he enjoyed doing it for your ancestors.
But only if you listen obediently to God, your God and keep the commandments and regulations written in this book of revelation. Nothing half hearted here you must return to God, Your God, totally heart and soul holding nothing back.
