I will set no base or wicked thing before my eyes... (Psalm 101:3, AMP)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
In this Psalm, David was determined to honor the Lord with his mind. David knew that what he watched would affect his thinking. If he didnt guard his mind by choosing carefully what he looked at, he would be drawn to do things that werent pleasing to the Lord.
The same is true for us today. If we are watching things on TV or reading things in books or magazines that arent pleasing to the Lord, we are opening a door to the enemy. When we look on things that arent pleasing to the Lord, a stronghold is built in our thinking. We become enslaved to those wrong thoughts. But, God has given us the power to break those strongholds through the blood of Jesus Christ!
If you are struggling with thoughts that you dont want anymore, today, you can be free. First, receive His forgiveness and make the choice to change what you are looking at. Let the Lord wash you clean and strengthen you by His Spirit. Focus your thoughts on His Word and do not let any wicked thing before your eyes. As you determine to honor the Lord, He will empower you by His Spirit so you can live in freedom and victory all the days of your life!
A Prayer for Today
Father, today I choose to honor You with my mind. I choose to guard my eyes and not watch anything that isnt pleasing to You. I ask that You set me free of every stronghold so that I can live in peace, joy and victory in Jesus name. Amen.
