6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace..
Today’s Inspiration: You are not in the flesh but in the spirit if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. To be carnally minded is death. It is better to be spiritually minded for it grants you life and peace. Romans 8:6 and 9.
Real change is only sustained by multitude of subsequent little good choices and deliberate acting upon them.
Let Father Me healing bring the power of your old habit structure to death on the cross so that the old behaviours and attitudes do not control you.
Life is all about our thinking, feeling and action. It is important we don’t handle negligently. Satan loves to entice us to go back to old ways of thoughts and reaction. Proverbs 26:11. Impulsiveness caused us to react and fail God. Old behaviours and attitudes which are habitual shall have no power to control or drive us. Let God’s living presence grant us wise answers to people’s provocations instead of reacting in anger.
We may struggle but as we persist the new excellent way, life will be wonderful. Without Jesus we can do nothing. Irritations that trigger old habit patterns are not easily recognisable. They sneak in like little foxes slipping in to eat our tender grapes. Songs 2:15.
Foxes of thought can creep through mental or emotional defences to threaten development of new fruit of the spirit. Lonely people fall prey to sin of self pity. Beware of little foxes of thought who will greedily devour our promises of new life.
We are called to live and grow in healthful balance of resting in the Lord so that we can take great exploits with confidence knowing that it is not by might, not by power but by His spirit that we can accomplish all the assignments given. Zechariah 4:6.
So do watch your old habitual thoughts which are the little foxes that ruin your vine of life.
