Guard Your Mind
“Do not those who plot evil go astray? But those who plan what is good find love and faithfulness.”
Proverbs 3:27 says, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” It’s pretty straightforward isn’t it? We will become what we allow our minds to dwell on. Have you had the experience? Where you found yourself so saturated in worry only to become paranoid? Have you been immersed in a fear so strong, that it paralyzes you? Have you been bound in strongholds so tightly that you feel claustrophobic, hopeless and helpless to free yourself? It’s our minds, and our thinking that gets us into these horrible places of ruin. The mind is the first line of defense, and the target for the enemy’s entry into a life and a temptation is his way in. It’s his foot in the door, and if we give him a foot in he can get our mind, he can get our heart and he can get our life so entwined in sin that life becomes hopeless.
Let’s hide 2 Corinthians 10:5 in our back pocket and engrave it on our hearts as a reminder to bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:5 “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” Our actions and behavior will follow our thoughts, therefore we have to take action in our thought life. As believers and disciples of Christ, Let’s be challenged today to fix our mind on truth, holiness and the excellence of Christ as we hear Paul’s words to the persecuted Christians in the Church of Philippi, in Philippians 5: 8, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.
We cannot think defeat and expect victory. We will become as our thoughts direct us. Think on what is good and find joy and hope, love and faithfulness! Defeat the enemy; Think victory and behave victoriously.
