Most of us are familiar with insurance policies and the protection they provide. We’re also aware of what happens when we fail to renew those policies. The coverage that was there to protect us goes away; when and if we need it, it’s no longer there. That’s a good way to look at God’s Word and how important it is to our spiritual walk. In Ephesians 4:23, the Apostle Paul urges us to “be renewed in the spirit of your minds.” Paul is reminding us that as believers our minds need to be spiritually renewed on a regular basis. Why? Because renewed thinking, based on the Word of God, results in right living. In Jeremiah 31:25, English Standard Version, the Lord says: “For I will satisfy the weary soul, and every languishing soul I will replenish.” The word replenish literally means “to make full or complete again.” In other words, God will restore what once was (our spiritual coverage) to its original state. If we’re not consistently feeding our minds on God’s Word, if we allow our faith policies to lapse and be cancelled, then we chance losing our spiritual coverage and protection. The Bible says that, as believers, we have the mind of Christ. When we continually and consistently renew our minds to God’s Word, we remain under the divine protection and covering of our heavenly Father. Don’t let your spiritual life insurance policy lapse. Renew your policy, and then keep it up to date by doing these four things: Continue to pray and stay in close communion and fellowship with God; Study and meditate the Word; Maintain a positive mindset based on the Word; and live by faith. Make sure your spiritual life policy with God is in full force, and that you’re divinely covered and protected—every day!
