“And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.” Romans 12:1
We know what we should do, but doing it is often the real challenge. We know what we should not do, but keeping ourselves from doing it is the really hard thing to do. I have noticed that most of the battles that take place in my physical life, take place in my mind before they manifest themselves in reality.
Learning to fight and win the battle in the mind, will save us a lot of heartache, time and trouble in the long run. What we give to God, God can take and use in amazing ways to move us to a place of blessing and fulfillment. The beautiful thing is that this allows us to give to God glory, which He is due and it allows God to give us blessing, which allows us to give Him even greater glory.
Take some time today to think about the battles you are fighting in your mind. Fight those battles and win – you will be glad you did!
