Are you winning the war for your mind?

“Helping People Fulfill God’s Plan For Their Lives Through Business”

Are you winning the war for your mind?

Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires (world’s system); but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires (Kingdom of God). The mind of sinful man is death, but mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace; the sinful mind is hostile (enemy) to God. It does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those controlled by the sinful nature (world’s system) cannot please God. Romans 8:5-8

The battle for control of your mind and heart is an everyday war. Your sinful nature causes you to pursue the desires of the world’s system which is bent toward cravings. The cravings become sin when you act upon them.

Do not love the world (world’s system) or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world-the cravings (desires) of sinful man, the lust (desires) of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does-comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:15-17

The world’s system does not satisfy; it is empty and leaves you thirsty and dry in the wilderness. What are you living for? Things, recognition of man, and stuff? Or are you totally completely sold out to God? Which system are you pursuing, God’s or the world’s? You cannot straddle the two systems. You cannot serve two masters, for you will love one and hate the other. When you thirst and hunger for God and HIS word you will find contentment and peace in the midst of the storm.

Lord forgive me for thinking of and longing for stuff that is not your good, pleasing and perfect will for me. I can only be satisfied in YOU. YOU are all that my heart and mind desire. You are my fulfillment. Forgive me for wanting things other than you. I want everything you have for me. I submit my mind, will, emotions and desires to you. I desire YOU more than anything this world can offer. I know I can trust you with my life and burdens. Forgive me for thinking my happiness can be found in anything other than you. Fill me with your Holy Spirit today and glorify yourself through me today.
