Vital Bible Verse:
எல்லாக் காவலோடும் உன் இருதயத்தைக் காத்துக்கொள், அதனிடத்தினின்று ஜீவஊற்று புறப்படும்.
Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. —
Everyday of our life, our minds are presented with hundreds upon hundreds of thoughts, ideas, and suggestions by outside sources. To everyone of us, Christian or non-Christians alike, the thoughts will be presented.
For example, today you will be presented with a number of suggestions by magazines, radio, television and all sorts of things on the internet. However you decide what you will look at, receive and act upon. You decide what thought, idea and suggestion you allow to stay on your mind. You have control over your mind, no one else does. God also given us free will.
You must understand that you are going to be presented with negative information, thoughts and ideas no matter how hard you try. You cannot overcome this problem by shutting your senses. To live a successful Christian life, you must monitor your mind constantly to make sure that you only receive the information and ideas most needed for you to operate effectively in today’s society. If you leave your mind unattended, negative information, thoughts and ideas will take root in your heart and influence you negatively.
The key to victorious living is to fill your heart with God’s Word so much so that the distractive information, thoughts and ideas from the world will have no space to occupy in your heart and mind.
Father, help me to discern and reject every thought inconsistent with the righteous standards You have set for Your children.
