God Connect: Daily Renewing Your Mind, Body, and Spirit

Think on These Things

on February 20, 2012

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”  Philippians 4:8

It’s so easy for Satan to attack our thoughts.  Have you ever been having a good day then all of a sudden a thought crosses your mind that changes your whole mood and disposition?  Unfortunately, that’s probably happened to us all too often.

Satan knows our weaknesses and he thrives off of the opportunity to use them against us.  This is why Paul admonishes us in Philippians 4:8 to think on the good things.  When our minds are focused and centered on God and the good things He’s doing it’s hard for Satan to distract us and pull us away.  God desires for us to be strong Christians who are rooted and grounded in His love and in our faith in Him.  When we let the devil attack us with the little things, it weakens us from being what God really desires us to be.

Today I challenge you to take Philippians 4:8 to heart (and mind).  Focus on the good, virtuous, lovely, and pure things.  In turn, God will strengthen you and give you peace of mind.

“Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”  1 Peter 1:13
