The Light Daily Devotional – A Polluted Mind
Focus – A Polluted Mind
WORD FOR TODAY
When the mind has been polluted the sense of judgment will be wrong. In your relationship with men, relate with them based on what you see and can verify about them and the pure conviction of your mind but not what you were told about them!
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Philippians 4:8 ESV
Each time the devil and his agents on earth want to win over a man they pollute his mind. This was the strategy used for Eve. As humans, we are limited in various areas of life. If care is not taken as far as our relationship is concerned, we will fail in our responsibilities towards men or even miss the blessings God preserved for our lives through them.
Some people, because of the grudges they bear in their mind as a result of what they were told, missed the chances they had of fulfilling their God-given dream through a covenant helper. Sometimes, the way we see God is a function of what we were told about Him by men based on their personal experience with Him or what they feel about Him.
Don’t give room for pollution! Always pay attention to what is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent and anything worthy of praise!
+ What is the basis of your conviction about men and God?
Prayer: Lord! I receive the grace to discern the right disposition to various issues of life in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: Give no room to pollution but always renew your heart to discover what is good and the will of God at all times!
Have a Blessed Wednesday!
