MIND over Matter (Romans 7:25)
I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
I must admit that I was still in my feelings from the residue left over from yesterday. It bothered me and I keep asking myself why was I feeling this way and how did it come about?
I was fine all day yesterday, until I left church and it was like my entire world had shifted. I could not for the life of me understand what took place in that short spand of time. But this morning, God spoke, via Rms 7:25, to me during my time set aside with him.
I didn’t understand the scripture at first but after some digging, I sat in awe. In awe of just how good, patient, and loving God is. What I received from this scripture is the following:
Thank God that it is through the redemptive blood of my Savior Jesus Christ that I serve the laws of God via my MIND. By my flesh I serve the laws of sin.
So it’s my Mind/matter (flesh)
Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
Whatever I put my mind to I can do. The change takes place, first in the mind. My mindset must be changed or renewed. In other words, a reprobate mind.
Thank you, Lord for your understanding, grace, and mercy. You love me and have never left me. Thank you for your rod of correction. Amen.
