Day 28 - Philippians 4:8-9

2 Minutes - SILENCE, STILLNESS AND CENTERING WITH GOD

Philippians 4:8-9

8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

The goal here is to have a mind in which the glorious Father of Jesus is always present and gradually crowds out every distort- ed belief, every destructive feeling, every misguided intention. You will know your mind is increasingly “set on God” when the moods that dominate your inner life are love, joy, and peace— the three primary components of the fruit of the Spirit.

To make my mind a home for Jesus, I deliberately ll my mind with the kinds of things God says are important...Whatever repeatedly enters the mind occupies the mind, eventually shapes the mind, and will ultimately express itself in what you do and who you become. The events we attend, the material we read (or don’t), the music we listen to, the images we watch, the conversations we hold, the daydreams we entertain—these are shaping our minds. And ultimately they make our minds receptive or deaf toward the still small voice of God. (GICTYT, p. 88)

What are you consciously and unconsciously filling your mind with?
