If you have a mind, then you know full well about all the good, bad and weird thoughts that introduce themselves to you. Some thoughts are so bizarre we don’t even want to share them with anyone.
Proverbs 23:7 For as you think in your heart so are you.
Those thoughts that enter our mind can have a profound affect on our lives. If you are wise you will determine the source of your thoughts, sort out the evil ones and hold fast to the good ones. All thoughts originate from one of two sources, the Lord our God or the god of this world, the devil. What about all of our modern technology, where did those thoughts and concepts come from? The Lord our God gives us the knowledge of witty inventions.
If you think you can, you’re right. If you think you can’t, you’re right.
Why do you choose to listen to people who think life is impossible and too hard to live successfully? I like what the Christian conservative Paul Harvey use to say on his daily broadcast: wash your mind out with this. Paul Harvey always had a positive, upbeat broadcast every day, he was always encouraging. So, how do we develop a positive, can do attitude that we can live with?
Romans 12:2 Do not be molded by the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, and then you will prove to yourself, what is the good, acceptable and perfect will of God.
Sitting around hoping things will improve is an exercise in futility, it’s like telling a stove to give you heat and then you will give it wood. We need to be proactive when it comes to renovating our minds, they don’t just change for no reason. If you are a student of the world system you are filling your mind with contaminated material, that makes your task that much harder. Judas was a committed thief, so the devil knew exactly what to target, Judas offered no resistance. Despite the prophetic warning of Jesus, Judas thought he was doing the right thing by betraying the Master.
2 Corinthians 4:3-4 If our Gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost. In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not.
The devil can be very convincing when it comes to opposing the Lord, he can sound like it’s the right thing to do. The devil had no problem blinding the mind of Judas. How can we know when the devil is inundating us with his thoughts and schemes? He will always put the emphasis on us, he will not mention God unless it is to misquote Him. If he blinds your mind you won’t think in line with God’s Word and you will feel good about the error he presents you.
When you hear the thoughts of God they will be thoughts of peace and not of evil, and they will indicate something good is coming. Don’t trust your thought life to anyone but Jesus, we can’t afford to act on the thoughts of the devil, we don’t want to be a loser like him.
The devil is a thief,
he has come to kill, destroy, and steal.
The devil has a word,
but my Lord has the final Word.
I choose to ignore the devil,
I don’t believe what he says.
I love the Word of my Lord,
He speaks only the truth.
His Name is greater than the thief, so I will be blessed.
YEAR OF THE LOCAL CHURCH
PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
