The Bible states that in order for you to be transformed you have to renew your mind. The transformation at the beginning of any lifestyle change seems to come easy on the first day. The last Just Be Fit program we had over 120 people to sign up but finished with only half of the people that started. Why you might ask? The answer to that question is that some of them didn't renew their minds. The Bible says as a man thinketh is his heart so is he (Prov. 23:7). If you think that this process is too hard, then guess what--it will be. How many times have we found ourselves starting to change our old habits to only finding ourselves repeating them?
So how do we as Christians transform our bodies?
By Renewing Our Minds.
You have to see yourself off of medicine and enjoying exercise. You have to meditate on what God's word says about you. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. You are an overcomer. You are healed. Write down what God has said about you in His word and make it visible to your eyes daily. As you meditate on God's Word, your mind will be changed and your body will transform in the process. God knows your heart and He sees your effort, so trust that He will see you through the entire way.
God I thank You for Your Word. Your Word says that I am healed. Your Word says that I am an overcomer. I thank You that my body is being transformed by the renewing of my mind.
