Part of your new life in Christ is having the power to let go of your old one. You are a new creation in Christ, but the negative patterns you've learned throughout your life still need to be displaced. Every time you recognize one of those old patterns trying to take control, it's an opportunity to stop, take a deep breath, and let God speak to them instead.
That may seem simplistic, but it’s in that growing revelation of His presence you'll find all the peace, joy, wisdom, and confidence you need to overwhelm the old mindset and thrive in the new.
God isn’t a once–a–week inoculation against your circumstances. Every day He is fully encouraging, equipping, and empowering you for all you’re facing. But it's up to you to occupy them—let your Sunday faith experience grow into your Monday Jesus lifestyle.
"Set your mind on heavenly thoughts, rather than being consumed with earthly ones. Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator, and become like Him” (Colossians 3:2, 10).
