What in the world was I thinking?

1 Corinthians 2:16

For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

The word of God tells us that we have the mind of Christ. Now think on that a minute, the mind of Christ. So, what does He think? We need to study the word of God, we need to hear the word of God. We need to let the word of God so change our hearts that when the enemy comes in and fills our hearts with fear, the word of God will rise up to confront him with the truth. The battlefield is in our minds, so we need to change our minds. Hide the word of God in your heart this day, think on things that are of a good report . God can change our hearts but not our minds, we can change our mind but not our heart. So when we change our minds, God will change our hearts.

Be blessed this day,
Denise

Thank-you for the GREAT word of encouragement and reminder to HIDE God's Word in our hearts ...

I am so thankful for the scripture I memorized when I was younger - and the scriptures in song I taught my boys - it is still "in" there and comes to mind just in time every time! God is Good!

You have reminded me I need to KEEP at this - to memorize MORE!!!

Denise,
I've come your way via Katey-D's blog. I just wanted to encourage you in blogging. It's great fun, you make some good friends who encourage and challenge you (might I suggest christianwomenonline.net if you haven't found it?) and I've already said it but it's just fun!

Blessings, and I look forward to reading more of your posts. Even though you're new, you're good at it!
