It is in your thoughts that the greatest battles take place. It is in your mind that you have your greatest anxieties, fears and afflictions, it is also in it that you have control over your attitudes, choose to obey, love and even choose to have thoughts of happiness or sadness.
So I would like to start today’s message by asking you a few questions: Where has your mind been wandering? Is she calm or agitated? Have you been able to hear God’s voice?
These are important questions that can reveal a lot about how we view life and about our relationship with God. So, I would like to invite you to reflect a little on your thoughts.
Where has your mind wandered?
What I fear, and want to avoid, is that just as the serpent has deceived Eve so cunningly, your mind will be corrupted and deviate from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.2 Corinthians 11: 3
The mind of someone who has accepted Christ and is a new creature, must not be wandering, on the contrary, must be centered and focused, because that is where the enemy works, trying to take control of his thoughts. very subtle way.
In a mind that there is room for over ramblings is where uncertainties and lack of trust in the word of God are worked. In addition, it can disrupt our daily lives, reducing our productivity and also damaging our relationships, by not paying attention to what the other has to say.
Is your mind calm or agitated?
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, in prayer and supplication, and with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ. Jesus.Philippians 4: 6-7
We don’t need to worry about any area of our life, because God is taking care of each one. I know that it is not always easy to remain calm in the face of situations that generate anxiety, but in the word of God it is written that we must cast all our concerns on Him. God is powerful to take care of every situation and does not allow you to go through any situation that does not would do.
Often the last thing we do when we are anxious is to talk to God and ask him to take care of what is afflicting us. We talked to countless people, but we forget that our father has not only solace, but the solution for what we are going through. God must be the first friend we seek for advice.
Are you hearing God’s voice?
The two previous questions were essential to get to this one, because God speaks in silence, so we need a calm and focused mind. In addition, we were able to listen to him in moments of Bible reading and prayer, where we set aside time to seek the Lord. The Holy Spirit touches our hearts when we stop to understand what the father wants to say to us.
In conclusion …
What we think is very important in our relationship with God, we need to be calm to listen to his voice. Pray today and ask him to work on your thoughts, so that there is peace and focus, also pray asking God that your mind be like that of Jesus Christ.
God bless you!
