Lord of My Mind

How to Engage with these Devotionals:

  1. Read the passage of Scripture. Read it once to get an idea of what it’s saying, then a second time to make note of what God could be revealing to you.
  2. Read the devotional. Take a couple of minutes to read the day’s devotional thought for insights on the passage.
  3. Answer the questions. Whether you’re answering them alone or with a group, spend time honestly answering the questions.
  4. Ask God how you can start applying these verses into your life.

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.


-Romans 12:1-2


How often do you think, “I wonder what’s going on in that person’s mind”? Whether it’s out of curiosity or concern, we think about other people’s minds a lot. The mind holds what’s expressed outwardly. It’s an interesting place! It holds our thoughts, beliefs, memories, and actions. Everything that makes us who we are is held in the mind. Crazy, right? What’s crazier is that the mind can physically change. That’s why Scripture talks about the renewing of our minds.


Romans 12:2 says, “Do not conform to the pattern of the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” The author of Romans is telling us that, through Jesus, our minds can be made new! Our minds hold struggles, addictions, insecurities, and beliefs about ourselves that can change. The work of Jesus isn’t simply an outward expression but an inward renewal.



When Jesus is Lord of your mind, you think differently—not because you act differently, but because you’re renewed. Your relationship with Jesus becomes physical and tangible in your mind. You begin to express joy, peace, patience, and kindness because you’re physically changing.


So, how is Jesus Lord of your mind? What are you praying Jesus helps you shift in your mind?
