Transformation! Ignite Your New Man Thinking

Ignite: Catch fire, catch light, burst into flames, detonate, go off, 

Now it’s time to ignite your New Man thinking. The word “ignite” means to catch fire, catch light, burst into flames, that to me, and go off. What a great word picture of what the word of God does to transform and change us.

I imagine when God created heaven and earth, and there was nothing there was so much power in his Word it  caused atoms, molecules, ions to ignite a form and fashion creation. Maybe not literally in terms of  fire, but the idea of cause and effect. It will work the same way in our life. Out of the void, life exploded, set off discharged from the very power of God’s Word.

Start your Engines

Every car has an ignition switch. It is an electrical  process that begins when I turn the key and the engine starts. I need the right key for the right car. I cannot get to my destination if I don’t insert the key into the ignition. I can wish, whine, complain that that will not get me anywhere much less out of the driveway. 

We ignite our new man by speaking:

  • The positive, the good report, the things God says
  • The  promises
  • Truth, instead of lies
  • Words of self-respect, words that edify and encourage ourselves

We ignite our new man by choosing:

  • Life over death
  • Faith over fear
  • Think on that which is lovely pure and good
  • Choosing to be thankful in everything
  • To make a choice;  choices are the pathway out
  • Guard our mouth for it is the spring of life, broken cisterns

We ignite our new man by having our minds transformed with the Word by:

  • Studying
  • Reading
  • Believing
  • Trusting
  • Rely on
  • Leaning  on
  • Rehearsing what God says

Here is some New Man Thoughts:

I am successful because I am a tree planted by the rivers of life Ps. 1

I am more than a overcomer Rom 8:37-39

I am the righteousness of God in Christ

I am redeemed

I believe all things are possible because I’m in Christ Jesus

I see opportunity when others see impossibility

I can take risks that have been bathed in prayer, godly wisdom and Scripture

I feel God’s overwhelming and unconditional love and acceptance

I embrace my childlike wonder and curiosity

I can take flying leaps of faith because God promises to give me wings as eagles

I have a God ordained purpose and contribute to something bigger than myself

I create because of the Holy Spirit inside

I learn because I had the spirit of wisdom and understanding

I can do all things through Christ or strengthens me

I am accepted in the beloved Eph. 1:6

I am loved and nothing can separate me from his love. Rom. 8:39

I am worthy because I am a workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works. Eph. 2:10

I am a vessel of honor, clean and useful for the Master therefore shame, guilt has no place in my life, 2 Tim.2:21
