As we the people of God prepare to enter the New Year, the contents of our lives are not seasonal events; I believe it has to become our way of life from here on end, and this is why the scripture says, “Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind.” Read Romans 12:2 (BEREAN STUDY BIBLE). Clearly, from the text, we are told, renewing of the mind with the Word of God daily is the key to having healthy deposits in one’s life. Watch this, your life can either become a receptacle for good or for evil, the choice is yours to make.
If there is no daily mind renewal, then the works of the flesh which is also called works of darkness will be the end product. Have you not heard? “what you deposit in your heart is what you become in life.” And I believe this is a reason for such scriptures, “Guard your heart with all vigilance, for from it are the sources of life.” Read Proverbs 4:23 (NET BIBLE).
The Bible says, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Read Ephesians 6:12 (KJV). In other words, the battle is not with physical entities, therefore, that person is not your enemy, remember, it is a spiritual battle, a subtle battle of the mind engaged by the devil through suggestions and contrary views which opposes God’s precepts.
Now here comes the question, how does one ensure the content of their life is rich towards God? This is a good question for us to tackle because we can be rich in everything else but poor towards God; that makes you a poor rich man.
