“THERE IS A MIGHTY BATTLE going on for control of your mind. Heaven and earth intersect in your mind; the tugs of both spheres influence your thinking. GOD created you with the capacity to experience foretastes of heaven. When you shut out the world and focus on GOD’S Presence, you can enjoy sitting with GOD in heavenly realms. This is an incredible privilege reserved for precious ones who belong to The LORD and seek HIS Face. Your greatest strength is your desire to spend time communing with The LORD. As you concentrate on GOD, HIS Holy Spirit fills your mind with Life and Peace. The world exerts a downward pull on your thoughts. Media bombard you with greed, lust, and cynicism. When you face these things, pray for protection and discernment. Stay in continual communication with GOD whenever you walk through the wastelands of this world. Refuse to worry, because this form of worldliness will weigh you down and block awareness of The LORD’S Presence. Stay alert, recognizing the battle being waged against your mind. Look forward to an eternity of strife-free living, reserved for you in heaven.”
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, LORD, I will seek. PSALM 27 : 8
The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace. ROMANS 8 : 6
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world—the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. 1 JOHN 2 : 15 – 17
Prayer: Jesus, thank you allowing me to feel foretastes of Heaven here on earth. Holy Spirit control my mind today, help me to pay attention to what I let in my mind and how it impacts me. I look so forward to strife-free living in Heaven. Thank you Jesus for making that possible. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
