“And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;” Ephesians 5:18, 19
What are you filling your mind with?
Are you thinking about His goodness or someone who has wronged you? Are you thinking about His mercy or how to get revenge?
Philippians 4:8 (nkjv)Finally, brethren,
whatever things are true, whatever things are noble,
whatever things are just, whatever things are pure,
whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report,
if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
We are creatures of habit, from the moment we wake up there are patterns in our life that we follow. Whether we get dressed before that first cup of coffee or after, when we eat breakfast, exercise, etc. Our thoughts, good or bad can become habits or patterns too. Some say it takes 21- 30 days to form a new habit or break an old one.
Take the challenge to replace negative thoughts with positive ones. For the next 30 days find time to start your day in the Word, read from Psalms it is a great book of praise! The ancient Levites sang specific songs for each day of the week. Read them or search and find your own Psalms that have special meaning to you.
Sunday: Psalm 24.
Monday: Psalm 48.
Tuesday: Psalm 82.
Wednesday: Psalm 94, followed (in many communities) by the first three verses of Psalm 95.
Thursday: Psalm 81.
Friday: Psalm 93.
Saturday: Psalm 92.
Today fill your heart with joyful praise and worship that will cause your focus to be on Jesus. Don’t let the devil control your heart and Mind , they both belong to Jesus.
Have a blessed Saturday. Love u all.
