It’s Friday! I’m really looking forward to the weekend! REST! I love my Saturday mornings; sleeping in for me is something I love to do for myself!!
I want to share something with you, It’s about our minds and how we are to take every thought that is not of God captive. If you’re like me, the enemy knows the best time to start planting negative thoughts in your mind is at bedtime, when you’re going through the motions of the day.
While I was working today, all of a sudden from out of nowhere, negative thoughts started coming into my mind! The enemy was telling me things that I know are not true but I was allowing him to put them there! Thoughts like you’re not loved and you’re lonely. He was telling me things just the opposite of what the Word says about me! As a matter of fact, it was making me feel all those things that he was telling me, because I was allowing the thoughts to enter into my mind!!
Psalms 94:19 tells us, “When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your comfort delights in me.”
2 Corinthians 10:5 reminds us, “We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the (true) knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ.”
So keep your mind on Christ! Take those thoughts captive! Those thoughts may come, but we can choose not to let them overtake our minds. Not today devil! I choose not to think upon those things that are lies!!
Satan is the father of all lies! He can’t tell the truth, so any negative thoughts that come, all come from him!!
All good things come from our Heavenly Father! Philippians 4:8 tells us what to think upon: “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
I choose to think upon the good things of the Lord! Be blessed today! Have a great and enjoyable weekend!
I wore this cute Ralph Lauren dress to church last Sunday! Got it at Goodwill for $5! You can’t beat that!
My Tip Of The Day: Whenever possible keep worship music playing! It’s great for the MIND!!
