There is a saying that states, “It is all in the mind.” Well, this happens to be true. Have you ever noticed that you tend to act out the beliefs that reside in your mind? If your mind contains negative beliefs, you have negative emotions and destructive actions. If your mind contains positive beliefs, you have positive emotions and constructive actions. Your mind is a control center that affects your whole life: how you handle yourself, how you handle other people, and how you handle God.
THE MIND OF SINFUL MAN IS DEATH, BUT THE MIND CONTROLLED BY THE SPIRIT IS LIFE AND PEACE
Precious Child, think of a control tower at an airport. It is the job of the air traffic controller to control the incoming and outgoing planes and tell them where to go. He gives the planes permission to land and the pilots have to obey. This ensures life and peace.
In the same way, I have sent My Holy Spirit to be the thoughts-and belief-traffic controller of your mind, giving permission to certain thoughts and beliefs to land, and others, to leave. I, the Father, of whom are all things, want to be in charge of your life—what you believe, how you feel, and what you do. The result in your life will be Life and Peace.
FOR US THERE IS ONE GOD, THE FATHER, OF WHOM ARE ALL THINGS, AND WE FOR HIM; AND ONE LORD JESUS CHRIST, THROUGH WHOM ARE ALL THINGS, AND THROUGH WHOM WE LIVE
(1 Corinthians 8:6).
The question is: Will you allow Me to be in charge of your mind through the Spirit of My Son, through whom are all things and through whom you will receive Life and Peace?
THOSE WHO ARE LED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD ARE SONS OF GOD
Who is in control of your mind—your own beliefs, or the Father, from whom are all things, and the Spirit of His Son, through whom are all things? Consider praying the following prayer, every morning, giving God’s Spirit authority to exercise restraining and directing influence over your mind and its beliefs.
PRAYER: Lord God, how encouraged I am that You are able to purify me through and through…even my mind.
Lord God, be the belief-controller of my mind. In the same way an air traffic controller gives permission to planes to take off and land, I authorize Your Spirit to be in control of the beliefs that enter my mind, moment-by-moment. Give permission to the pure beliefs of Truth to land, and command all negative beliefs to leave, so my life could be filled with Your Life and Peace.
Maintain an Awareness
We now have a moment-by-moment choice: to live our daily lives the way we always have, under the reign of the OLD MAN, or to allow the Lord Jesus to live His NEW MAN Life is us.
