Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2
Get the enemy and the customs of this fallen world out of your thoughts. How do you do that you might ask? Well initially and most importantly is to spend time alone with Jesus. Just you and Him and your Bible. Your thinking and mind are transformed the more time you focus on reading the word.The world's way is self centered, angry, lustful, confused, selfish, jealous, hateful, non Christian, and go ahead and add to my list. I am not saying there is nothing good in this world but primarily the content of ads creates lust and greed. Television and movies try to desensitize us to sin by showing us junk over and over till we don't care. The nightly news is skewed and just doomsday. If you feed on a diet like this no wonder your mind gets messed up.I urge each person reading to ask God to fill you with love, joy, peace, kindness, mercy,but to do this you need to be different and set apart from what deep down you know is wrong. Are you ready for the challenge? I hope so!PRAYER: It is so easy to get sucked into the stronghold of wrong thoughts. The only way I see to get strength on this area is to stay in the word daily and reject the ideas this world throws at us. Give me your strength Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.
