“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect”. – Romans 12:2ESV
Do you struggle with negative and sometimes ungodly thoughts? What are you allowing into your mind and thereby controlling your heart, your actions, and your words? What we think determines where we end up in life, so it's vital that we learn to master our mind.
However, too many Christians are mastered by their ungodly thoughts and unhealthy emotions and this leads them into unholy situations. As Christians we have the ability to connect our mind to the mind of God through the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:1-11). In order for us to change our course in life we must change the way we think.
Here are some things we can do to control our mind: guard your mind. Center your mind upon the Lord Jesus. Don't let the devil take away your daily devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ. Stay in love with Jesus and there won't be any room for those filthy, dirty, wicked, lascivious, lustful, and prideful thoughts that bombard us all.
Start today to become more active in taking control of your thoughts and bringing them into obedience to Christ (2 Cor. 10:5). Screen your thoughts. Let the Word of God be the grid of your mind. Reject the thoughts that aren't compatible with the Bible.
