When you hear a lie going through your mind, say out loud:
2 Corinthians 10:5 “Satan, you are a liar. I will not receive (or believe) your lie in the Name of Jesus.”
1 John 4:4 “I remind you that it is written, ‘He that is within me is greater than he that is in the world.’ I command you to bow your knee to the Name of Jesus and leave me.”
(Now you have pulled the lie out–just as you pull a weed out of the ground. An empty hole remains where the weed was, and you will need to fill the space you cast the lie out of with Scripture.)
Philippians 4:8 Begin to think on the Word or begin to sing a praise song to God. Make a conscious effort to fill your mind with good, pure, wholesome, and lovely thoughts.
Today is hump day. It’s right in the middle of the week and so I thought this would make the perfect post. Sometimes it can be a struggle to get to the other side of the week or metaphorically to get over a way of thinking or a difficult situation. Even though I am not currently, today, struggling with any particular thought I think it is still a good reminder to be vigilant over your mind and pull out negative weeds so you have healthy mental soil.
What is a thought that you can remove today? Once you’ve severed the root and turned it over to Jesus what was one verse/truth you planted in it’s place?
