STAY YOUR MIND ON THE WORD OF GOD
– Isaiah 26:3
The spirit of a sound mind is a spirit that can possess you. However, the spirit of a sound mind may not possess your own spirit because you are not doing the things that you should do while you are doing things that you should not do. If you want to get your mind to a place of peace and concentration on God, you have to give it something to focus on. Your mind has been designed by God to always focus on something.
Man’s mind is not meant to be blank. That is the trick that the devil uses on some people that practise Yoga, Eckankar and other Eastern religions. Meditation is something good and it is of God, but when you keep your mind blank, a demon will jump in. God does not want us to have our minds blank. He wants us to think positively, constructively, and in the direction that glorifies Him because there is a latent power in the mind. Your thought life will definitely culture you and mould you into what you become in future.
It is not easy to let your mind stay on God, especially when you have problems. It takes committed practice. All the things we have been exposed to and our upbringing, our environment, our experiences and the teachings that we have been exposed to, either in the place of work, school or in relating with people, gang up to build dangerous strongholds into our lives and make us what we are.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to keep my mind focused on Your Word at all times to keep me in perfect peace in Jesus’ name.
