“And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” Philippians 4:8
“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.” Isaiah 26:3
You’ve probably heard of the game "Minute to Win It." In life, when it comes to living victoriously we too only need a minute to win it. Truly, wins in our health, our happiness, and our holiness are a minute to minute matter. We are a product of what we do habitually, which means minute to minute decisions are big a deal. They add up!
When it comes to our thoughts, I believe there are always one of two scenarios:
- Your thoughts direct your actions, or;
- Your actions direct your thoughts
I really do believe it's that simple. Today, as you start a new day be laser focused on your thoughts. When we act in ways that are counterproductive and oppose our goals, we tend to focus on those things and it MASSIVELY impacts your life and your peace. However, when you keep your mind on the Lord and who you are in Him, your thoughts are controlled and directed by the Spirit. Your actions begin to follow your thoughts. When you think about who God says you are, you’ll actually start to become and behave more like that woman! We can enjoy peaceful assurance knowing that actions led by the Spirit produce and INCREASE life and peace. Today, begin by getting your mind right so that your thoughts direct your actions. Remember, you have absolutely NO obligation whatsoever to do what your flesh urges you to do. You have the power of the Holy Spirit who guides you toward life-giving choices. Today, simply choose your operating system carefully and remember who you are!
