Your mental life is the most important gate you have to guard and regulate because everything else can freely flow through this gate. If you are mentally crippled and unable to regulate what happens in your mind, you become like a city that has no walls or gates of protection. This is why the enemy is doing everything possible to control the minds of this generation.
It begins by keeping your mind stayed on the Lord and His word, thinking in patterns of the Bible. Refusing the influence of the world with it’s unlimited ways of trying to steal your attention, your mind and heart. Your peace, prosperity, health, survival, growth, longevity and everything else you can think about is greatly affected by your mentality.
Therefore keep you mind on the things and the ways of the Lord. Refuse to give control of your mind to someone or something else. Keep an open mind to the Lord and His word. Remember the old saying, ‘ You can’t stop birds from flying over you but you can stop them from making a nest on your head.’
SCRIPTURE READING: Proverbs 23:6-7 Do not eat the bread of a miser, Nor desire his delicacies; For as he thinks in his heart, so [is] he. ” Eat and drink!” he says to you, But his heart is not with you.
DEVOTION PRAYER: My Lord, as my mind is stayed unto You, may I continually glorify your name with everything that I do. Amen
