Scripture Reflection

Then he said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, for you have striven with God and with men, and have prevailed.” Genesis 32:28

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” 2 Cor. 5:17

1. Morning (and evening) Preparation:

When you wake up in the morning it’s crucial that you prepare your mind for the day. Start your day in prayer to align your heart and mind with God’s. (2 Cor 10:4)

2. Visualization

Phil. 4:8 teaches us a powerful lesson about visualization. It is a simple and valuable tool that believers can use to bring heaven to earth. It involves painting a picture in your mind of the outcome you wish to achieve. This is a great tool to use in conjunction with your prayers to help you develop a clearer picture of how God is calling us to live.

3. Regular Realigning:

When you act out of your limiting belief or false identity (people-please, control, boast or act overly dramatic) you behave in ways that don’t line up with who God created you to be. This is the time to seek the Holy Spirit and come into alignment with you are in Christ. (2 Cor 10:5) Notice the behavior and either pray the short prayer or renew your mind by citing scripture that relates to your habit or behavior. (see point 2 or point 3) on the  individual pages.

4. After you’ve given in to temptation:

We will not win all of our battles but our success rate will be dramatically improved when we can renew our mind AFTER we’ve fallen into temptation. This strategy will be the same for each group regardless of your false identity. (Eph 4:23)

5. Long-term Strategies

It’s taken you years to develop some of these habits and patterns so you should not expect healing to occur with the push of a (reset) button. Begin by selecting one new habit that you will develop that has been holding you back. Choose one from the suggested list or come up with your own.


Share which of these strategies you will consistently implement into your daily routine.
