Beloved child of God, I implore you to return to the-BE TRANSFORMED THINKIT and restudy it, to get it into your heart and mind.
Remember faith comes by hearing. I like to say-by hearing and hearing and hearing by the Word of Christ. Paul said in Philippians 3:1(b) Ampc,-To keep writing to you (over and over) of the same things is not irksome to me, and it is for your safety.
Thank you for your taking the time to read and study God’s Word.
Be blessed beloved child of God!
PRAYER- Father, glory to Your Name. I bless You, for You are a God of AWESOMENESS! Glorious are Your works! I thank You for the finished work of Calvary on the cross by Your precious Son, Lord King Jesus. Glory to the Lamb! Father, I ask that Your marvelous Holy Spirit lead me in the way I should go to renew my mind, that I may be transformed by your Your Holy Spirit. Ephesians 4:23 says to be renewed in the spirit of your mind continually. Perfect that which concerns me in this renewal. Help me to come to the accurate knowledge of my Lord King Jesus that I may have the mind of Christ in every area of my life. Let me not neglect such a great salvation glorious Father. I present myself as a living sacrifice unto You, holy and well pleasing to you Father through Your Son Jesus. Work in me the desire to keep Your Word before my sight and to keep it in the center of my heart, for Your Word is life to those who find them and health and healing to all their flesh. I want to keep and guard my heart with all vigilance above all I guard, for out of it flows the springs of life (Pro 4:20-23). I want my heart to be fully persuaded as Abraham was persuaded and grew strong in his faith in You as he gave praise and glory to You Father. I want to give You glory through Jesus Christ by renewing my mind. Help me to think Your thoughts by thinking on the things it says in Philippians 4:8; to think on what is true, noble, righteous, pure, lovely and admirable. Teach me Your way, O’ Lord, that I may walk and live in Your truth; direct and unite my heart [solely, reverently] to fear and honor Your name (Ps. 86:11).
Thank You Father that You love me with an intense and great and wonderful love, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Beloved child of God, it is good for the heart to be established and ennobled and strengthened by means of God’s grace (God’s favor and spiritual blessing) (Heb 13:9). Bearing fruit again beloved child of God is a work of the Holy Spirit producing it. Philippians 2:13 says-[ Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight. So beloved child of God, study, hear, receive, love, obey, meditate, speak the Word, and be in prayer with thanksgiving to Father. Declare the Word over yourself and others and be in His Presence. Fall more in love with Jesus. Be kingdom minded. Feed your spirit, spirit food (the Word of God). Bind the Word continually upon your heart (Pro.6:21) and be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind (Eph 4:23). Jesus says-I am the Bread of Life (John 6:35). Be blessed!

Beloved child of God, you want this transformation because you want to be pleasing to Father in all things, because you love Him because He first loved you. So in Col 1:10 it says-That you may walk (live and conduct yourselves) in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him and desiring to please Him in all things, bearing fruit in every good work and steadily growing and increasing in and by the knowledge of God [ with fuller deeper, and clearer insight, acquaintance, and recognition]. So fruit is produced from your putting the Word of God into you, and letting the Holy Spirit produce the fruit as you grow in the knowledge of Christ. James 1:21 says- So get rid of all uncleanness and the rampant outgrowth of wickedness, and in a humble (gentle, modest(spirit receive and welcome the Word which implanted and rooted [in your hearts] contains the power to save your souls. So the Word of God contains the power in itself, but must be perseveringly sown into your heart and watered.

The Word God is sown into the heart by hearing it preached and by you speaking it and by meditating on it and having it before your eyes. Mark 4:26-29 says-And He said, the kingdom of God is like a man who scatters seed upon the ground, And then continues sleeping and rising night and day while the seed sprouts and grows and increases- he knows not how. The earth produces [acting] by itself- first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. But when the grain is ripe and permits, immediately he sends forth [the reapers] and puts in the the sickle, because the harvest stands ready. So beloved child of God, planting the Word of God in your heart is a process that is not known how it grows, but the Holy Spirit produces the fruit. So keep keep studying and hearing and being in the Presence of the Lord and you with unveiled face, [because you] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord are being transfigured into His very Own Image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [ for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit (2 Cor 3:18). Acts 20:32(b) says-And I commend you to the Word of His Grace [ to the commands and counsels and promises of His unmerited favor]. It is able to build you up and to give you [your rightful] inheritance among all God’s set apart ones (those consecrated, purified and transformed of soul).
