A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY (Be A Gatekeeper)

December 15, 2015

“Guard your heart, for out of it flow the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23

Having disciplined thoughts is of great importance. The mind is the gateway to the soul. We must control the gate. Be careful what and who you let in. Be a gatekeeper. All the day we are assaulted with thoughts. Many go unnoticed, and yet affect us in ways that are quite powerful. The Lord gives us these words through the Apostle Paul:

2 Corinthians 10:5  “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”

These days we live in are grieving to the Lord and our own souls. Only through the power of the Holy Spirit can we live as God has called us to. Only through His help can we do this and yet….it is God that decided that you and I should be born in this time and in this place. He has given us all we need to overcome. He loves to see us overcome!! Never be condemned in the struggle. If we are truly resisting ….He will give us the grace to defeat the enemies of our souls. He loves us and delights when we want to live a holy life before Him. In Christ we shall overcome!

Here is a great prayer from the Psalms:

Psalm 19:14  “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my Redeemer.”

Amen
