The Stories Our Mind Could Tell ~ LIVE TODAY ~ 2013 ~ Day 35/365, Week 6/52


The Mind of a Man

Proverbs 16:9  “A man’s mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure.”

Proverbs 20:24  “Man’s steps are ordered by the Lord.  How then can a man understand his way?”

Our thoughts determine our steps throughout life.  When our thinking is toxic we are allowing our mind to control our lives and denying ourselves the richness that freedom and truth bring.

Detoxing our minds on a continual basis will allow clarity of right decisions and actions.  Thus, our lives will display strength in all things.

I challenge you today to guard your mind against all thoughts of guilt, shame, torment, rage, anger, impurity, etc.

These are traps that keep us from moving forward in our daily walk towards a determined goal.

Sometimes our thoughts become so toxic that the stench of them begins to invade our relationships, our workplace, and especially our self-worth.

Stop.  Listen.  Think.

Take these steps before allowing a complete thought to occur and envelope an action that could change your life and take you down a road of regret.

Your thoughts will determine your future.

When you begin to grab a hold of your thoughts, you are allowing your spirit man to direct your impact upon others.  Ultimately, not only will your life be changed but that of those who cross your daily path.

LIVE TODAY!  and . . .

  1. I remember reading “The Battle for the Mind” by Jesse Penn Lewis. It was very strong. As a new believer I assumed Jesse was a man. Later, after applying the teachings, I discovered she was not. But an early 19oo’s warrior. Keep leading the charge. -Gary
