What the Bible says about Renewing Your Mind
The Bible challenges believers in Jesus to “to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” Ephesians 4:23-24
This is the call to renewing our minds. The Scriptures contain many references to meditating, abiding, fixing our mind, and thinking. Below are some key Bible verses to challenge and equip you to renew your mind. May God Bless you in your pursuit of a renewed mind!

In all that he does, he prospers.
- Isaiah 26:3
