'SHIELD YOUR MIND'

"Keep your heart with all diligence: for out of it are the issues of life" - Proverbs 4:23
.
Everything a man does or that he becomes is a function of his mind. Your life can never be greater than the thoughts you think of (Prov. 23:7a).
.
For you to become saved, great or live a life of purity, it's a product of what you allow to saturate your mind. Hence, you are shaped by your thoughts. Do not forget that the you that people see on the outside is a reflection of who you are on the inside.
.
How is the mind affected?
.
The thoughts you think upon determines the outcome of your life. Think impossibility and have it impossible. Think failure, expect failure. What you hear, see or read will affect your thought life. Anything that can influence your thought will definitely affect your life.
.
Your challenges. What you are presently facing has the tendency of affecting your mind. A man or woman that experiences delay in getting married or in conceiving may think otherwise. Job said, "Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him: but I will maintain my own ways before Him (Job 13:15).
.
Do you allow your challenges to affect your mind or get you away from God?
.
Your enemy has a way of attacking your mind. Your physical enemy has a way of doing things to affect your mind while your spiritual enemy comes through the dream to affect your life.
.
When your enemies succeed in making you fall, don't accept defeat, instead, tell them you will rise again and that when you sit in darkness, the Lord will give you light (Micah 7:8).
.
The greatest attack of the enemy is to attack your mind with evil thoughts, your challenges or through others. Let your heart be fixated on God and not on the things you're going through.
