Scripture: Mathew 5:27-28
“ you have heard that it was said to those of old, you shall not commit adultery but I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
we fought lesser battle in the physical than we fight in the mind. Our mind is the battleground of thoughts that is why the bible says that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
Your mind is the process unit of your actions and behaviors. The pattern of your thought is your life style. Your actions and behaviors are expression of your real person within. That you have evil thoughts is not evidence that you are not saved; in fact your salvation does not stop evil thoughts.
Your salvation is free but your spiritual growth will cost you discipline and spiritual diligence to get your mind renewed once you are saved, you will need to diligently uninstalled any software that strengthen, encourage and energize you to sin and provoke God to anger.
’’ And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” . (Romans 12:2)
salvation is free but discipleship is costly. it will cost separation and loss of relationship that encourage you to sin, it will cost you daily spiritual diligence to study the word of God and allow it to change your life.
After you have given your life to Christ, it will be your personal responsibility to grow. You will need to join the family of Christ where you will be nurtured, so instead of going to the Night club, you go to bible study during the week.
It is by diligence in personal study of the word of God that brings transformation of mind.
Every day, believer uninstalled to install . We uninstall every thought that is enmity to God.
Train your mind to think scriptures
Now when the tempter came to Him, he said “ if you are the son of God, command that these stones become bread. “ it is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Mathew 4:1-2)
Jesus set a standard for us here on how to overcome satanic thoughts. If Satan comes to plant his thoughts into your heart resist by the word of God. Devil came with three temptations; Jesus overcame him with three scriptures. I want to encourage you to be a daily reader of the word of God.
I receive grace to be diligent in reading the word of God. I will think scripture, and I will act scripture.
