Our mind is one of the most important things we have. It's, a wonderful gift of God, and with it, we could do so many things if we use it. It's great to dream big! It's important to think about good things. I will share what Paul the apostle has to say in Philippians 4:6-8
"Be careful about nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things"
These verses are powerful in these three verses they tell you what to do to have peace and how it will guard our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Then he tells you what to do and living in a day and age that is dripping with instant gratification and wants things now it's unrealistic with having foods heat food in a minute and go through a drive-through to get food now. It has made people lazy to be honest instead of searching the scriptures for yourself you rely on someone else to feed you and get it for you.
So what I have to share with you will give you some responsibility. You will learn that you are responsible for what goes in your mind what you allow to come into your mind and how you react to it. The bible tells us in Romans 12:2: "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God"
Paul the Apostle said in 2 Timothy1:7 God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.
Our mind needs to declutter and needs to be in line with the Word of God, distractions will come so make sure you keep your mind in line and touch with what the Word of God says and not let all these opinions get in the way. Let me give you an example of our computer at work I would get at least 100 emails a day or more and if I didn't organize my folders of where the emails would go I would be answering and reading emails all day and get nothing done. So when I created a folder for my sup and team lead, all those emails went to that folder. When I created another folder from the departments I worked with, those emails would go there. I also created emails on projects that I was previously working on, and all the other emails went to my inbox. I answered emails based on the priority of work, what was important and what belonged to me, not the ones that were just cc'd to our departments. Once I did this I was able to accomplish more daily and not let all the distractions take all day it was crazy the number of emails that were coming so this was a lifesaver.
Our mind is the same way, you get up in the morning you have things that are planned to take priority and get done that day. You say let me check my emails real quick and the next thing your husband is waiting and it's been 90 minutes and now he doesn't want to go anywhere, maybe not that extreme but you get the idea. You promise the kids that you would take them to the movies and your boss or best friend calls you, what is more important? That is what voicemail is for. I say this because I had to learn to do this my kids would look at me and say oh well. No not any longer the most important thing is family everything else takes second fiddle and before you say I know for me too, just examine the scenarios.
The question, do you want to renew your mind with the word of God? Do you want to declutter your mind from all the news trending on the tv or online? I say it's hard to take care of this normal life than to deal with virtual life. Now with the Covid-19, we have all been forced to work from home and many tell me that they get distracted from all the notifications that come there way daily.
It's like writing a book and the next thing Facebook is sending you notifications, Instagram, twitter. I had to shut them all down until my work was done. That is the only way you accomplish anything, at least for me. If you want to know how to cast down every imagination and every high and lofty thought and bring all thoughts captive to the obedience of Christ you want to read my book, because you get expert advice, reviews, and you get everything that I put down backed by the word of God.
With the book, you learn how to renew your mind, map your mind, you learn what is fear? You learn what faith is and the science of thought, how our mind connects to fear and what to do about it there is so much to show you and I would be blessed to go over with you this blueprint on "Do Not Fear" How to be fearless!
