“I’m not that person anymore.”
It’s a simple command you can mentally give your mind in the midst of a sinfully influential thought or craving to remind it that you are living a new life now, and this is not acceptable anymore. The mind will put up a fight, and it will take time and persistance, but eventually it will get the point and move on.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2
Father, my mind is transformed for Your service. I am renewing it daily to teach it what is good and acceptable according to Your perfect will. I once lived a slave to sin, but I am not that person anymore. I am cleansed, I am sanctified, by the precious blood of Jesus. Amen!
Truth in love,
