And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. (Romans 12:2-3 KJV)
As believers, we should not be governed by our emotions or how we feel, but we should be governed by the will of God. The renewing of the mind is not just knowing the scriptures or the Word of God, but it is a renewing of the heart. The heart of a person holds to things and treasures that matters most to them and is most precious to them. As believers of Jesus Christ our Lord, we have some things in our hearts that we hold most precious that is not of the will of God. We need to examine ourselves and our own hearts for a renewing or changing of the mind. Personal time in prayer plays a vital part in our walk with the Lord which leads us to a renewal of the mind. Prayer in your personal time should not just be petitioning or talking, but it includes listening and hearkening to the voice of the Lord. Depending on the state of your heart (harden or sensitive) and your sensitivity to the Holy Spirit will determine the readiness of your renewal of the mind. God imparts Himself and His Faith into the hearts of those that will produce.
