Job 31:1– I dictated a covenant (an agreement) to my eyes: how then could I look [lustfully] upon a girl? (AMP)
Job decided in his mind what he could and could not look on. Then he made his eyes obey. Our minds form the basis of our success. The definitive work on this subject is Joyce Meyer’s ‘Battlefield of the Mind’. Here are some scripture truths on the topic of the mind.
Proverbs 23:7–For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he. (KJV)
Zechariah 4:6b– Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit saith the Lord of hosts. (KJV)
Matthew 8:13–Jesus said “Go! It will be done just as you believed it would.” (NIV)
Psalm 42:5– Why are you cast down, O my inner self? Why should you mourn over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in God, wait expectantly for Him. I shall yet praise Him, my Help and my God. (AMP).
Proverbs 15:15–the days of the desponding and afflicted are made evil [by anxious thoughts and forebodings], but he who has a glad heart has a continual feast [regardless of circumstances] (AMP)
Prayer: Lord, teach us how to take control of our minds and to filter our thoughts so that our minds are full of all that you are. Then we will walk in ways that glorify you. In Christ’s name. Amen.
