Day 25 - Romans 8:5-8


Romans 8:5-8

5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. 7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. 8 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.

The truth is that your mind is never still...Each thought we have carries with it a little spiritual power, a tug toward or away from God. No thought is purely neutral. Every thought is either en- abling and strengthening you to be able to cope with reality to live a kingdom kind of life, or robbing you of that life.

In time, if we listen carefully, we can learn to recognize God’s voice. Not infallibly, of course. But the kind of thoughts that come from God are those in line with the fruit of the Spirit; they move us toward love and joy, peace and patience. And we learn that there are other thoughts that are not likely to be God speaking.(GICTYT, p. 83-84)

To what extent is your thought life moving you to a life of love, joy, peace and patience or robbing you of that life?
