Previously I talked about the mind and how to free your mind from temptations.  Some of the things I have already covered are:

  • What you think Success should look like
  • How the heart and mind influences one another.
  • What it means to renew your mind.
  • How a mind looks like that needs renewing.
  • Repenting asks from us to change our mind
  • Use your mind to understand and think in a sober way.
  • Understand God’s mysteries and remember Scriptures

This week I will continue to look at what we need to remember and use our minds for.

One thing God expects us to do with our brains are to remember.  That is where Scripture memorization comes in handy.  Contact me if you want to learn more about how to memorize Scripture, I have found a great tool to assist.  My children are better at it than I am……

Remember the First Covenant.

Heb 8:8-9 refers to a passage where the first covenant were not kept by the people and Jer 31:33 is quoted, the same passage are in verse 16 as well.

Heb 8:10

This is the covenant I will establish with the people of Israel

After that time, declares the Lord.

I will call but my laws in their minds

And write it on their hearts

I will be their God

And they will be my people.

Our minds are so occupied with our to-do lists. We even sometimes forgot where we have left our keys, purse or wallet. God wants us to have another list we remember constantly
