The Word Of God Is God’s Thoughts

Joyce Meyer (7)

Joyce: That’s exactly right so it’s imperative that people renew their mind. How do you do that? If somebody’s listening today and they’re like, “I don’t really have a clue what you guys are talking about but I have some kind of feeling inside that maybe you’re right. Help me.”  how could you tell somebody what they would do to renew their mind?

Mark Hankins: The word of God is god’s thoughts so you certainly want to bring your thoughts into agreement with god’s thoughts.  Philemon 6 says “that the communication of your faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing that is in you in Christ.” in other words, your faith becomes effective. One translation says “I pray that everyone who meets you will catch your faith and learn from you how wonderful it is to live in Christ.”  that means that our faith begins to become effective by acknowledging who we are in Christ.  Years ago just as a teenager, even though I’d been saved and filled with the Holy Spirit, I really didn’t understand that I had a new identity and you see that god throughout the scriptures changes people’s identities.

He changed Abraham’s identity. Before Abraham could reach his destiny, he had to have a change of identity, so Abram has to go around for 25 years saying “I’m Abraham, father of many” and didn’t have children. You can see Sarai and you can see Jacob had to have a change of identity. You can see even Simon Peter had to have a change of identity. You can see the Apostle Paul. The power of god hit him so hard, it knocked the “s” off the front of his name and put a “p” there; he was Saul. “now I’m Paul. I’m not the same guy! I’m a whole different person!” once god does that for you and you receive it, then every day get up and acknowledge, actually find scriptures that use the two words “in Christ, in him, or in whom.” there are 130 of them. I love Ephesians 2:10 where it says “for we are his workmanship created in Christ Jesus created unto good works which he has before ordained that we should walk in them. One translation says we are God’s handiwork and we taking paths that he has prepared ahead of time.

Joyce Meyer Ministries: One of my prayers was always, “Let me live a life and be consistent where people can see that, and you draw them to me, you bring them to me with questions,” because that’s where I think witnessing can be the most powerful is when somebody approaches you and says, “tell me about this.
