Have you ever heard of the term paradigm shift? I heard this term a few years back while watching one of Bishop TD Jakes’ sermons.
A paradigm shift is a change in a person’s perspective. As Christians, we are constantly experiencing paradigm shifts when we are carefully studying the Word and seeking the face of God.
Why do I say this? The Bible says God’s Word is “alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12). Also, in John 6:63, Jesus states that the words He speaks are full of the Spirit and life. Undoubtedly, God’s Word is more than just letters on the page.
Paradigm shift of the mind (Part one)
Before we can move deeper and higher in God, we have to allow His word to renew our minds.
Romans 12:2 reads, “but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Then Philippians 2:5 says, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.”
The mind is powerful and can lead us into good or evil. Therefore, we have to be cautious about what we watch or listen to, for subtle yet destruction seeds can infiltrate in our minds. That is why we have to allow the Holy Spirit to change the way we perceive things, and block anything that is contrary to the Word of God.
Prayer: Dear God, I humbly come to you in the name of Jesus. I am asking you to transform my mind. I no longer want to think the way I used to. Cause a paradigm shift to transpire in my mind, so that I can have the mind of Christ. Amen.
