You were running the race so well. Who has held you back from following the truth? It certainly isn’t God, for he is the one who called you to freedom. Galatians 5:7-8
IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED.
And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:8-9 (NLT)
Stop allowing the devil to cloud your mind, thinking and judgement with thoughts of doubt and despair. What I want you to understand is that what we put into our minds determines what comes out in our words and actions. In Philippians 4, Paul tells us to program our minds with thoughts that are true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and worthy of praise.
Of course, this is not an easy thing to do, however, it is attainable. We must be careful to examine what we are putting into our minds through television, internet, books, conversations, movies, video games, and magazines.
We have to allow the Word of God to lead us to obedience. Obedience to finish what you started. Obedience to walk in God’s will for our lives. We need to ask God every day to help us focus our mind on what is good and pure.
