Renew Your Mind, and Release It!
Based on a Charis Minute with Andrew Wommack
The MO (modus operandi or method of operation) of most Christians is to pray or beg for it!
You don't get peace by just praying or begging God to give it to you. For many Christians, it’s, “Oh God, give me peace. Oh God, give me healing. Oh God, give me faith. Oh God, give me joy!”
The truth is, you've already got everything. When you got born again, your little spirit was as saved as it'll ever get. It's not growing; it's not maturing; your spirit is not ‘getting better.’ Your spirit is as perfect right this moment as is it will ever be.
I John 4:17 says, "As Jesus is, so are we in this world." Not: so are we going to be in the next world. We're already that way.
But the problem arises when people look in the mirror, and they think, "This is like Jesus?" Then they search their souls and think, "This is like Jesus?"
No, it's not your body, and it's not your soul. But your spirit is perfect. Your spirit has already got love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance (Gal. 5:22-23). These are the fruit of the spirit.
You've already got peace. You don't pray for it. What you do is: Renew your mind, and release it! That's huge!
How do you renew your mind? Through the Word of God. Settle in your mind what the Word of God says you already have and already are—just like Jesus! Does Jesus have peace? Yes. Is Jesus sick? No. Does Jesus have joy? Yes. Does Jesus have faith? YES! And so do you—now, in this world!
Once it is settled in your mind and heart, just release it. Just let it flow out of your spirit into the natural.
This really is HUGE!
