‘Let My Mind Be Focused upon You’
Reading: Jeremiah 15:16-21
“Your words are what sustain me.”
O my beloved God, I desire to Study the Bible to shut everything else out and shut the door of my mind to be alone with You. Jesus, help me to concentrate on what You are teaching me. Holy Spirit, if I feel my mind is wondering help me to focus my eyes and mind on the Scriptures and check within my spirit to see if what I am being fed is the truth. Father, You want me to influence people but not let them influence me. They will fight against me like an attacking army, but You will make me secure as a fortified wall. They will not conqueror me; You will protect and deliver me. You, the Lord, have spoken! Yes, You will certainly keep me safe from these wicked men. You will rescue me from their cruel hands through Jesus Christ my precious Lord. Amen.
Lessons To Be Learnt
God will close the door of our minds from being influenced in the wrong way. He wants us to take on board His thoughts and ways. He does not want us to listen to the world or take on board the thoughts of man/women. Reading God’s Word is a real need to absorb the truth. Through prayer we can reveal our deepest and inner thoughts to God and trust Him no matter what our circumstances may be. Satan will do all he can to stop us knowing the truth. We should be determined not to be deceived any longer by Satan nor should we be influenced by others but always follow God’s teachings by reading His Word, listening to the Holy Spirit of God brings joy and love to our hearts this enables us to delight in Him.
