Confessions to Renewing the Mind
Confessions have amazing power to renew or reprogram your mind. If you have not read my earlier post – “Change the way you think, the Bible Way (Click Here)”. Please read it before you can continue with this, it will help you in understanding the context.
Love – I choose to Love in place of Hate. I choose always to Love everyone. I won’t hold any grudge or bitterness with anyone even though they may have or do hurt me. What they do to me, won’t change me a bit into something else. I will always spread Love to all. I won’t hold any record of any hate, bitterness or grudge against anyone whatsoever. (References: 1 Corinthians 16:14; 1 John 4:8;1 Peter 4:8; Colossians 3:14; 1 Corinthians 13:13)
Anger – I chose never to get angry in a unhealthy manner. My personality will always exhibit calmness and patience. If someone is disturbing me, I will tell them in a soft and polite manner in a posture that portrays healthy and constructive anger. (References: Ephesians 4:26-31;James 1:19-20;Proverbs 29:11;Proverbs 19:11;Ecclesiastes 7:9;Proverbs 15:18 )
Positivity – I will always stay positive and speak positive even when the circumstances are not so. I will speak faith even in dark and difficult times. Negativity will not have a place in my heart and mind. I am casting out emotional weights of self-pity, depression and pessimism from my mind. People, situations, society and my own experiences may be contrary to me or may be negative, yet, I will always believe in good things to happen and speak likewise. Faith will always be the refuge to which I will run. (References: Jeremiah 17:9;Proverbs 16:24;Proverbs 12:25;Proverbs 18:21;Philippians 4:8;Ephesians 4:23)
Self-righteousness – I will not boast in my own self-righteousness neither will I judge anyone for what they are in my self-righteousness. I believe I am as good a sinner as anyone else. All of us are what we are but by the Grace of God. It is God who Judges for a person’s sins, I won’t play God in Judging anyone in their sins. Rather, I will bear with their weakness just as God does to me and extend God’s Love and Forgiveness to them. (References: Luke 18:9-14;Jeremiah 17:9;Romans 8:7;Romans 10:2-3;Ecclesiastes 7:15-20;Matthew 23:25-28 )
Pride and Ego – I will always be humble because I believe that exaltation is the blessing of the humble. Pride goes before a fall! I will stay humble when I lose or win, conquer or not, triumphant or not, full or empty. Success will not change my personality to become proud, also knowledge or money or power or strength or influence will not lead me to become proud. I am humble out of my own decision everyday for my own spiritual good. Humility will always be my spiritual attire. I will not think myself of more than what I am in front of others for that would be Ego, I refuse to be egoistic. (References: Galatians 6:4;Isaiah 2:12;Isaiah 23:9;James 4:6;James 4:10 )
Forgiveness – I wont hold any record of the mistakes done by me or by others in the past. I am choosing to forgive and when I forgive it means that I forget too. I am forgiving for my own good and benefit. I believe in living with a light heart and mind that is free of unforgiveness. I wont hurt myself because of other’s evil deed or allow others to hurt me by allowing their hurt inside of me. I release every record of unforgiveness, rejection and pain that others (Friends, Siblings, Parents, Bosses, Neighbors, Relatives, Outsiders) have caused to me. I am indeed free and will always walk in this freedom. (References:1 Corinthians 13:4-7;Colossians 3:13-14;1 Peter 4:8;Luke 23:34;Matthew 5:23-24; Romans 12:16-18 )
Foolish Talk – I will always resort to speak slow and be quick to listen. I won’t speak hurting, senseless and casual words because I realize that in the multitude of words, there lies sin and every kind of evil. I will always think before I talk to release constructive, edifying and motivating words to others that will build others. I hate foolish and jest talk. My talk will always consist of sound wisdom. (References: James 1:26; Mark 7:20-22;Proverbs 18:2; Proverbs 24:9)
Prosperity – I believe in prosperity. I believe God’s people shall not lack or suffer poverty or debt. I will always stand and support God’s children to be blessed with Prosperity. I won’t speak anything that is against prosperity and my right to be prosperous. (References: Proverbs 10:22;2 Corinthians 9:8;Jeremiah 17:7-8;Proverbs 3:9-10 )
These are just sample confessions for you to build upon. Customize your own confessions based on God’s Word and keep speaking them in your mind for renewing or reprograming. Remember to practice confessions in your mind mentally or verbally over many times a day to settle the new thought in your mind so that it becomes a part of who you are. You can number your repetitions if you want, say 10 times a day or 20 times a week and so on. Unless, you practice repeatedly your mind wont accept the new pattern of thought and bring about a change in your lifestyle. All the best!
