Vulnerable or Available

"The battle for control of your mind is fierce, and years of worry have made you vulnerable to the enemy. Therefore, you need to be vigilant in guarding your thoughts... You are not alone in this struggle for your mind. My Spirit living within you is ever ready to help... Ask Him to control your mind." (170)
Our thought life highly dictates our entire lives. We are only as healthy as our thoughts! We can be vulnerable (to the enemy) or we can be available (to the Spirit.) "The mind-set of the Spirit is life and peace." Rom. 8:6.
The mind-set of the enemy is death, hostile toward God, unable to submit and unable to please God. (Rom.8:6-9)
Checking My Mind-set...dmc


  1. Chapter 11 in the study The Way of Agape, shares that it not the thought that is sin, but what I choose to do with that thought that can turn in to sin. If I choose to follow the negative thoughts rather than give them to God I separate myself from Him and this is sin. But if I choose to give them to God I am choosing to follow Him.

    Phillipians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.

  2. Thanks, Melissa...The book and scripture are both confirmations that we need to guard our thought life!
