If you are anything like me, your thoughts get crowded with many things as life happens. Our society tends to value busyness over everything else, often viewed as a positive thing, as being productive. This passage reminds us we need to fix our thoughts and minds on the things of God and not of this world. There is so much negativity that is fed to us non-stop, 24/7, 365 days a year, it can be consuming if we are not careful.
Questions for further thought:
1. When was the last time you took some real time to be with God to fix your mind on Him and His promises?
2. What changes could you make in your schedule to slow down and re-adjust your mindset on a daily basis?
Challenge: Our thoughts are very powerful and can affect the way we live our lives. This makes it critical that we have a positive and correct mindset when facing the many challenges of day to day life. God wants to walk with us every day, every minute of our lives if we only allow Him into our thoughts daily.
