Focus and Your Mind

July 14, 2006

I was reading yesterday one chapter in Stormie Omartian’s book, “The Power of a Praying Woman”. In it she gives some great insight from the bible that I would like to share.

“When the thoughts that you think begin to question and contradict God’s Word, you are being set up by your enemy…Certain thoughts may appear to you to be accurate, but when you hold them up next to God’s Word, the lie is exposed.”

Later on she says:

“You have a choice about what you will accept into your mind and what you won’t. You an choose to take every though captive and ‘let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus’ (Philippians 2:5), or you can allow the devil to feed you lies and manipulate your life. Every sin begins as a thought in the mind”

You have to rebuke the thoughts of satan by remembering that you have the mind of Christ. Speak to satan now and rebuke the thoughts he is trying to tell you. Remember Phillipians 4:8…

And now, dear brothers and sisters, let me say one more thing as I close this letter. Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. (NLT)

    This a comforting space to come into. Thank you for the gentle reminder that what we choose to focus on is what we become… and the power of taking on the mind of Jesus.

I love that scripture! It speaks to my heart and fills me with joy! I know my daughter’s read the book you have, but being single, I haven’t. I appreciate you adding a little of it here. Thank you.
