We input many things each day through our senses that ultimately direct our thoughts. Recently, I noticed a patch of beautiful white flowers growing among immense tress, just outside the church and marveled at God’s diversity in creation. For Christians, “whatever is true” is tested by how it aligns with God’s revelation of truth, the creation which is all around us, and His written word, the Bible. Take a moment and look at God’s handiwork and let your brain engage in healthy exercise as you marvel at our awesome Creator! Open your Bible and read a paragraph or two and let your mind think about what God reveals or teaches you in this moment. Again, marvel at our awesome Creator who has led you to truth. If you reflect upon your day, can you trace moments where your healthy thinking process brought forth a healthy faith action? It starts in the brain with our thoughts. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, MIND, and soul.
Include God in your thoughts today. Be intentional and be guarded in your thoughts. Think about truth. Think about your Heavenly Father and His attributes as you engage your mind in prayer. I will end this thought with a blessing of Paul; “May the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, guard your hearts and mind in Christ Jesus.”
