Keep Your Mind On These Things

Phil. 4:8,9 Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God's Word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things, center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart. ...practice these things in daily life, and the God, Who is the source of peace and well-being, will be with you. Friends, if you need peace in your life you will have to guard the things you think about. The enemy will bombard your mind with negative, fear filled thoughts if you allow him. When overwhelming thoughts of despair, failure, and pressure seep in, the only way to drive them out is to replace them with the truths of God's Word. Write scriptures down, carry them with you, and replace those thoughts with TRUTH.
