The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace. Romans 8:6
There is a mighty battle going on for control of your mind. Heaven and earth intersect in your mind; the tugs of both spheres influence your thinking. The Lord has created you with the capacity to experience foretastes of heaven. When you shut out the world and focus on His Presence, you can sit with Him in heavenly realms. This is an incredible privilege reserved for precious ones who belong to Him and seek His Face. Your greatest strength is your desire to spend time communing with Him. As you concentrate on Him, His Spirit fills your mind with Life and Peace.
The world exerts a downward pull on your thoughts. Media bombard you with greed, lust, and cynicism. When you face these things, pray for protection and discernment. Stay in continual communication with the Lord, whenever you walk through the wastelands of this world. Refuse to worry, because this form of worldliness will weigh you down and block awareness of His Presence. Stay alert, recognizing the battle being waged against your mind. Look forward to an eternity of strife-free living, reserved for you in heaven.
