“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2 NKJV
We just returned home from filming On the Road to Freedom in Evergreen, Colorado. It was a beautiful trip and we thank you for your prayers! (Please watch our special Thank You video on our YouTube channel, to see a sneak peek of the gorgeous Colorado scenery and the home where we filmed that was literally built “on the rock.”)
Citing it’s medicinal purpose, Colorado was the first of now thirty-seven states to make marijuana legal as a recreational drug. But ten years later it’s become obvious that a drug was not the solution in an era where mental health has become a crisis. Before giving his life to Jesus, Mylon struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts. Even after being born again, he fought constant worry and anxiety. All of these negative emotions were rooted in the spirit of fear which he didn’t know he had authority over in Christ Jesus. He needed mind renewal to THE TRUTH. (You can read his powerful testimony in his autobiography, Without Him, available at www.mylon.org.)
We are hearing all around us reference to “Speak your truth”, “My truth”, etc. The error of these statements infers that truth conforms to someone’s lifestyle or choices. When the very definition of truth is that it does not change. Even if a billion people say its not true, truth does not alter because we have a special case or circumstance. There is only one truth and it is the Word of God.
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, The Truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6 NKJV - People who don’t believe that Jesus is the Word and He is the Truth don’t go to heaven!
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8 NKJV
“The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.” Isaiah 40:8 NKJV
We conform our lives to The Truth. It’s never the other way around. The good news is when we get our minds renewed to The Truth we’ll see life from God’s point of view, setting us free and free indeed!
So how do we get from here to there? The solution is mind renewal.
We need to be transformed, which means CHANGED, by the RENEWING OF OUR MIND in Christ Jesus. Each of us should continually be growing because our destiny is to be “changed into the image” of the Son of God. (Romans 8:29) So if King Jesus is our standard, then every time we come in contact with the Word we can always come up higher! Can I get an Amen?
Here’s the great reward to mind renewal: Learning “the good, the pleasing and the perfect will of God.” How many times have we prayed, ‘Lord show me your will?’ As we study God’s Word, our minds are changed by The Truth and we begin to understand His purpose for our lives. The “good and pleasing and perfect” will of God is where the blessed life is! It’s where we find: Holy Matrimony, uncommon favor, supernatural increase and unprecedented promotion. So if you’re ready to get your mind renewed to The Truth, please declare:
“I refuse to be conformed to this world. I choose to change by getting my mind renewed to The Truth of God’s Word. My life is blessed because I’m learning to walk by faith in the good and pleasing and perfect will of God!”
As you give your precious seed this month, we’re in agreement with you that your mind is being renewed to the prosperous plan God has for you! (Jeremiah 29:11) No matter the chaos in the world around us, our future is bright because we live in a different kingdom. We have a covenant with God! He promised that our financial seed sown is producing a harvest so great “that there will not be room enough to receive it!” (Malachi 3:10)
We love you and we are praying for you everyday,
Mylon & Christi
