Good Morning, dear one,
I love you and I am praying for your health: physical, emotional, and spiritual. This virus will attack us in every aspect of our lives. It is very important that we be vigilant (on watch) for an attack by the enemy. And sometimes the most vicious battles we will have to fight are in our minds. Paul tells us in Philippians 4:8 to meditate on these things: whatever things are true, honest, just, pure, whatever things are lovely. This is great advice for us this morning. Set your mind. Make a deliberate decision to control your thoughts. The Amplified Bible reads, “Set your mind and keep it set.” That means that you must keep watch and reset your mind whenever it starts to wander into fear territory.
Do not let your mind ramble. Let means to allow, permit, or give permission. Jesus says in John 10:10, “The thief only comes to steal, kill, and destroy. I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.” Do not give evil thoughts a foothold in your mind. Set your mind. Only one little letter (L or S) determines your mental health in this crisis. Let or Set. I believe that even now we can choose an attitude of gratitude. We can choose joy. With God’s help, we can do all things. Linda
