Good people: Be careful that you think right. Psalm 4:23-27


Proverbs 4:23-27
23 Be careful what you think,
    because your thoughts run your life.
24 Don’t use your mouth to tell lies;
    don’t ever say things that are not true.
25 Keep your eyes focused on what is right,
    and look straight ahead to what is good.
26 Be careful what you do,
    and always do what is right.
27 Don’t turn off the road of goodness;
    keep away from evil paths.

If you've ever found yourself making up scenarios or imagining things that haven’t happened and worrying yourself needlessly, stop it.  Our mind is a powerful tool given to us by God yet many of us never learn to use it wisely.

Do yourself a favor and train yourself to think as if God was in the next room. Seek Him out, read the book called the Bible and make a covenant asking Him to help you focus your mind on right things.
Ask God to help you focus on understanding what He wants from your life.

Once you get that right everything else falls into place. 
When you understand that your mind runs your life, you can make the right choices.

Sin on the journey

Before I know it, sin drips from my mouth and floods my mind. Oh the struggle.
Romans 7:22-23 I love to do God’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free. 
My current struggle is in not easily recognizing the extent of my sinfulness. I can easily preach it, but continuous righteous living eludes me.
Ouch. It hurts. I reveal this because I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul, but the sinner in me wins. It's the same struggle the A…
