Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

Colossians 3:2

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of Faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

Hebrews 12:1-3

RESET YOUR MIND

Last post regarded asking God to help with the thoughts in your mind. This one is about taking an active role in controlling those thoughts yourself. Fill your mind with God. His word. His praises. Actively think about the Lord and his goodness.

I like this quote from Joyce Meyer
 
” When we fill our thoughts with the right things, the wrong ones have no room to enter.”  — Joyce Meyer

We can choose to think about many things. Some good and some evil. I can choose to think about God and Jesus teachings or I can choose to think about something sinful. I can choose to think about God’s love or I can choose to think about how miserable I am in this world. I can choose to thank God for his many blessings or I can choose to think about all I don’t have. Let us set our thoughts on God and on things above.

Notice in the verse in Hebrews it talks about throwing off everything that hinders and the sin that entangles. These things that hinder are the thoughts that keep us from God. Fill your mind with holy things. and as the verse says run with perseverance the race marked out for us. God has a path for us and a purpose. We will walk that path one way or another. Remember Jonah? He bucked the path God had in mind for him. He ended up riding in the belly of a whale. Seems, that to purposefully try to serve God and his will we will make our own lives easier. Even Jesus said we will have our hardships, and the verses speak of perseverance which comes through overcoming hardship. But keeping our mind on God and striving to do glory and honor to him through our life will make it easier.
