Our minds are a mysterious place. They can develop great fantasies, think up tremendous pioneering ideas and create stunning pieces of art. However they can also be our downfall. So often our minds tell us lies and convince us of things that are not real.
We need to capture our thoughts and weigh each thought next to what God wants, says and does. Our minds can so easily be influenced by the world around us and by the enemy himself. In a world that bombards us with social media, fitness, sex, popularity, the next gadget etc etc.
So how do we capture our minds and ensure they are in line with God’s own thinking?
We spend time with him, we ask him to reveal what he thinks of us and we choose to believe in truth and not the lies in our heads. Choice plays a huge part in it. If we do not discipline our minds then we allow them to run wild and out of control. Controlling us rather then we who master’s them. Our minds are a powerful thing and God intended for us to use them to further his Kingdom but not to be enslaved by them.
Identify the lies being told and right on pieces of paper the opposite to each of them and hang them someone you will see them often. Invite someone into the process that you can be accountable with and who can cheer you on and pick you up when the lies get too much.
God wants you to be free and know your true mind. The one he gave you. So why not start today? Invite someone in on the process? And ask God to help you on the journey.
Be very blessed and free X
