Keep Your Mind On Him

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! ” (Isaiah 26:3, NLT).

Never dwell on your problems that seem insurmountable, your circumstances that seem unending, or your worry about a future that you don't know. The enemy loves to take you there every moment of your life. He is the master of “what seems”. Instead dwell on God's enduring faithfulness. He never changes, and He will never fail or forsake you. Think more of Him, and less of what you face in this life. He is your healer. He is your strength. He is your provider. He is the greatest problem-solver. Don't analyze your problem until fear immobilizes you. Dwell upon Him and remember what He has done for you through the years. Remember how He has brought you through the struggles, the terrors, and the storms of life. He is your rock no matter what comes against you. Keep your mind steadfastly grounded in Him, and stand firmly anchored in the strong and sure foundation of His Word. He is your power to overcome any adversity. He is all you need at any moment.

Even those who are His most faithful children get so discouraged they forget to always claim His healing and strength! Claim healing for your body, your mind, and your spirit. Claim His strength for all that comes against you. Love Him completely, and always dwell on Him. Where your mind focuses, your heart follows. Release to Him the thoughts that rise to destroy you. He will be your strength for every weakness, and the shepherd who protects at all cost. He will handle what you are unable to handle. Keep your thoughts focused on Him. Then no weapon that rises against you will harm you. You will know His peace no matter what happens in this life. Think about that promise, and remember that those who hope in Him always renew their strength. They mount up to take on the problems of life with His vigor. They don't faint from all that comes against them, but wait for His strength to carry them.

Keep your thoughts upon Him today. Keep your mind focused on Isaiah 26:3 instead of the fear that has consumed your heart and mind. Read Philippians 4:6-7 and dwell on those words to help release your fear to Him. Dwell on the truth that God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of love, power, and a sound mind (1 Timothy 1:7). And the God of peace shall claim your heart and your mind.
