I don’t want to oversimplify this, but how we use our mind is our choice. To decide to use your mind to know God, learn His Word, study His truths, and trust His promises requires perseverance and discipline. Living out God’s plan for your life requires that you use godly thinking, wisdom, and guidelines. Matthew speaks to that very issue in 12:34…
Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
The question is, “What fills your heart?” And I’m asking myself that same question. If you want to live a godly life, you have to put godly things in your mind. The Bible says the peace of God will guard your heart and mind through Christ (Philippians 4:7). Seek God. Seek His peace. And give your thoughts to God’s control and influence. Feed your mind; don’t lose it!
Jesus, Your peace is like nothing else. It is everything. Protect my heart and mind so that I can walk and talk as a believer who speaks out of the abundance of a godly heart. Amen.
