Eight Steps to Freedom for Health

 Eight Steps to Freedom (Renewal of Your Mind)

In the journey of renewing your mind and walking in freedom, each step is crucial. Recognizing the problem and the enemy's tactics is the first pivotal step. Taking responsibility for what you discern follows, leading you to repent and turn away from participating in harmful influences. It is essential to renounce these negative elements, making a firm stand against them. Once identified, swiftly remove them, allowing no foothold for their return. Resisting their comeback is key to maintaining your newfound liberation. Victorious praise and rejoicing in God's deliverance fortify your stance. Finally, sharing your experiences and helping others restore their own freedom completes this powerful sanctification process. By focusing on the origin of thoughts, whether they stem from dark forces or divine love, you navigate towards a healed heart, cleansed spirit, and sustained well-being.

Recognize the Source of Thoughts

Every thought that comes to you originates from a certain kingdom. Is it accusation, guilt, shame, rejection, or love? It's important to discern the source of your thoughts and distinguish between good and evil. By recognizing these negative influences, you can begin the process of renewal.

2 Corinthians 10:4-6 “4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.”

Take Responsibility for Your Actions

Regardless of the emotional abusive trauma you may have experienced, you are still responsible for your actions. It is crucial to acknowledge your sins, repent, and seek forgiveness. Taking responsibility for your actions is the first step towards true transformation.

Psalms 51:2-4 “2Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin. 3For I acknowledge my transgressions, And my sin is always before me. 4Against You, You only, have I sinned, And done this evil in Your sight—That You may be found just when You speak, And blameless when You judge.

Corinthians 3:18 “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Repent and Turn Away from Sin

Once you recognize and take responsibility for your sins, it is essential to repent and turn away from them. Repentance involves a genuine change of heart and a commitment to follow God's ways. By confessing your sins and seeking forgiveness, you can experience true transformation.

Biblical Scripture 1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Biblical Scripture Ezekiel 18:30 “Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord God.

Biblical Scripture Nehemiah 9:2 “And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, and stood and confessed their sins,

Renounce Negative Elements

Renouncing negative elements involves falling out of agreement with sin and taking a stand against evil. It is important to separate yourself from sinful influences and develop a deep hatred towards sin while loving the sinner. By aligning your thoughts with the mind of Christ, you can resist evil and walk in freedom.

Romans 7:15-25 “15 For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. 16 If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. 17 But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. 19For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. 20 Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. 21 I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. 22 For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.

I Corinthians 10:20-22 “But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrificed, they sacrificed to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and the table of devils. Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he?

Swiftly Remove Temptation

To maintain your newfound freedom, it is crucial to swiftly remove temptation and sinful influences from your life. Avoiding places and situations that lead to sin, breaking soul ties, and staying away from harmful influences is essential for your spiritual growth.

Mathew 4:1-5 “1 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. 3 Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” 4 But He answered and said, “It is written, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” 5 Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, 7 Jesus said to him, “It is written again, “You shall not tempt the LORD your God.” 8 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.” 10 Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, “You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.”

Resist the Enemy and Stay Strong

Accusation and temptation will try to come back, but it is important to resist them and stand firm in your faith. By drawing near to God, filling your heart with His Word, and renewing your mind, you can resist the enemy's attacks and stay strong in your faith.

I Peter 5:6-9 “6Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 7casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 8Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.”

James 4:7 “Submit yourselves therefore to god. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

Luke 11:24 “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he sayeth, I will return unto my house whence I came out.

Also see I Samuel 15:22-23

Rejoice in God's Deliverance

Thanksgiving and praise are powerful tools in spiritual warfare. By cultivating an attitude of gratitude, thanking God for His victories, and keeping a positive mindset, you can overcome the enemy's attacks and walk in health and wellness.

Isaiah 35:1 “Give him thanks that pieces of dust like us can be redeemed for his glory."

Psalm 97:12 “Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the rememberance of his holiness."

Restore and Help Others

Finally, in your journey towards freedom, it is important to get involved and help others restore their own freedom. By sharing your experiences, instructing sinners, and bearing one another's burdens, you can experience true healing and transformation.

6:1-2 “1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. 2 Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

1 Corinthians 12:25-26 “25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. 26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

Psalms 15:1-3 1 Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? 2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. 3 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
 As you embark on the journey of renewing your mind and walking in freedom, remember that each step is crucial. By recognizing the source of your thoughts, taking responsibility for your actions, repenting and turning away from sin, renouncing negative elements, swiftly removing temptation, resisting the enemy, rejoicing in God's deliverance, and helping others restore their freedom, you can experience true transformation and lasting freedom.
