Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. Rom8:5-6. When we walk by the spirit its our desire to please God. Our focus will be on those things that please Him that will also fill our life with joy and peace. When we’re dealing with wrong thoughts we must apply the 3 R’s Resist, Reject and Replace. We must first resist persistent thoughts that would take us off track and then reject them. We then replace them with thoughts that are encouraging, uplifting and affirm our hope in God. Gods best for life is significantly better than anything the world has to offer so always keep your eyes on Jesus. Praise God today that in Him we have liberty, freedom and victory.
