This Mind of Mine ~ Sunday Devotion
Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, Philippians 2:5 (NKJV)
We can’t escape our thoughts.
I don’t know about yours, but this mind of mine can be an unwelcome place. Thoughts and ideas tend to pop in unannounced and then stay there. Other times, I can get focused on a negative event or negative words and not let go. Destructive thoughts can take over quickly.
During those times, I know that’s not the mind of Christ. But how can I have the mind of Christ?
If you’ve found yourself with the same battle, know that you are not alone. There is hope. There is a way to “let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.”
It starts with His Word. Daily Bible reading, scripture memorization, and prayer are all actions that will make your mind a more welcoming place to be.
The Bible is filled with His thoughts on you as well as on how to live your life.Inhabit this mind of mine, Lord, and help me focus on You. Click To Tweet
It’s easy to get distracted by setting our minds on the here and now. Our thoughts focus on that which is right in front of us or has us troubled. Those things gain our full attention. Doing so only keeps us in a cycle of defeat and constant battle in our minds.
A war is waging in your mind, but Christ in you can win that war.
Does you focus on negative thoughts and feelings towards your body?
Do you worry about weight and plan everything around how to lose that weight?
If you’re struggling to implement healthy habits that you can stick with, head to God’s Word. He has so much to say about you. Until you start looking at yourself through the lens of His Word, you won’t stick with a plan that is sustainable.
Anything you want to change in your life on the outside will only change when you start by addressing your thoughts.
Action Step: Take note of the thoughts roaming in your mind. Declare, “This mind of mine is yours, Lord.” Then, use His Word to chase away any unhelpful thoughts.
