Did you know that what you think determines the direction and quality of your life? The Bible encourages us to think on things that are pure, wholesome, and of a good report. (Phil. 4:8)
In order to think on the right things, it is important that you filter what you watch, read and listen to. Don't let the enemy slowly deceive you into lowering your standards and desensitizing you to what is good and pure.
Don't let him have a single opportunity to pull you down by watching or being involved in things that are questionable.
Remember you are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Fill your thoughts with the promises of God found in His Word-
promises of peace, joy, and freedom; promises of safety, deliverance and provision; promises of a future and a hope that are only found through Jesus Christ!
As you fill your thoughts with God's Word, victory will come alive in every area of your life!
Prayer for Today:
Heavenly Father, today I ask You to fill my thoughts with Your thoughts, and fill my heart with Your promises. I choose to focus on You and the good things You have in store for me. I will meditate on Your Word. Thank You for guiding my every action, my every thought and my every step.
(from "30 Thoughts For Victorious Living" by Joel Osteen)
I'm heading out the door for Runyon Canyon Park. I pray I make it to "Cloud's Rest." I'm a little out of shape. Up and down the paved path is a little more than two miles, and takes about an hour. I want to work my way in to the "fitness buff" category. Wish me luck.
Have a blessed and victorious day!
