Word : Mental Renovation

Culled from the mountain of fire and miracles ministries. Sermon preached on 27th April and 11th may, 2014.
MENTAL RENOVATION

To  renovate means to repair, renew, etc.
Some renovate their bodies, diet, career, houses, cars but neglect the renovation of the mind.
When you renovate your mind, your habit changes thereby changing your whole world.
The mind is the seat of consciousness and your thought determines this.
When you win a man’s heart, you have him.
When you know a man’s thought, you control him.
The mentality of many people needs to be changed.

All defeat starts in the mind

"My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” { Prov 4:20-23}
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee." {Prov 23:7}
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” {Rom 12:1-2}
