Have you ever worried over what another thinks of you? Me too!
I think I’ve heard it before, but I heard it again with freshness this morning!
“What another thinks of you is none of your business – but it is GOD’s – what they think and you think. So stop messing around in His business and mind your own mind with His.”
Philippians 4: (CSB) 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. source
1 Peter 1: (NASB) 13 Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. source
And You Version was messing with me too with this from Carol McLeod: “Every single one of us has spoken words “under the influence” of warped feelings and slurred thinking. And we soon wish we had the magical power to take those words back. It’s our thoughts and emotions that determine what words come out of our mouths.”
So at the prompting of the devotional I have this mission: What Bible verse can I use to help me declutter my mind and keep it in sync with the mind of The Father?”
What verses do you go to when your mind rebels?
