Walking it Out
We become what we believe we are. It is important that we not only verbally agree with the Truth of what God says, but also that we believe it in our hearts. “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he” Proverbs 23:7 (AMP)
The following ideas are practical ways to help you walk out what you have learned about changing your ungodly beliefs to godly beliefs.
- Remember you have prayed breaking agreement with satan’s lies. satan will attempt to bring more lies into your mind, or remind you of old lies. When he does, apply words from II Corinthians 10:3-5 and replace any lies with a Godly Belief.
- For a season you will need to continually “take captive your thoughts” until satan understands you are not buying into his lies any longer. satan may attempt to “hound” you with specific ungodly thoughts or beliefs, but if you continue to take your ungodly thoughts captive and renew your mind with the Word of God, satan will eventually back off.
- Since you have gone through the process with your counselor/minister of breaking agreement with ungodly beliefs and replacing them with godly beliefs you are now responsible for applying your new godly beliefs to your entire life.
- Speak aloud your godly beliefs consistently every day for at least one month. Speaking your godly beliefs aloud helps your mind to be renewed and your heart to be transformed. Some godly beliefs may take several months. Work on them until you know your mind has been renewed.
- Remember, your mind often wants to continue in the old thought patterns. Do not give up.
God tells us in Phillipians 4:8 that we are to think on positive truth, to renew our minds. We begin renewing our mind with the following things. As you think and mediate on these things, they will begin to take root in your heart. He also tells us in Hebrews 4:12 that His Word is alive and powerful. It will expose ungodly beliefs. If you continue to speak your godly beliefs and take time to pray over them, they will become a part of who you are and what you believe.
