Love you all, praying for you.
What PRISM Topic – does God want you to meditate on today? (for your PRISM M: Meditate on the Word) God drew a correlation for me this morning. Proverbs 29:15 The rod and reproof produces wisdom, but a child left to himself brings disgrace to his mother. Then God showed me that your mind, is like that child. A mind left to itself will bring disgrace, not wisdom. Perhaps because the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked. The mind is suspect… just like a child – it needs to be trained. The mind is what the devil attacks. That’s why God tells us - I Peter 5:8 Be alert, and sober of mind. Your enemy the devil prowls about like a roaring lion seeking someone to devour. That is so interesting. God is telling us – Train your Mind! Don’t leave it to itself! That’s on you! That’s your responsibility! So interesting, that word devour… means to waste, to consume, literally to ‘cause to fret’ - distress ones-self (devour) – get worked up about, lose sleep over. That’s all the devil can do.
This verse is talking about the mind. Your enemy cannot do anything to you. He needs God’s permission – just like Job in the Bible. So he keeps firing those darts at you. False threats. Things he wants you to get consumed with – that are not the truth of God - to ruin you. So what is the devil attempting to consume you with? What is he sending – to unsettle your mind? That’s the enemy. You need to train your mind. That’s why every day – Get the PRISM Topic that God has for you – and keep coming back to it. Every day God has one for you. Some are for emergency needs - when you are already in the emergency room - where the devil has already begun to devour you. But if you know and continue in the PRISM Topic that God has for you each day - your mind will be transformed. When the devil's attempt to devour comes, your mind will quickly recall the Word which combats it - and it never becomes an emergency room situation.
So what does God really say about this? Click PRISM Topic – Do Not Fret - This is a critical topic - part of “Train Your Mind 101” Here’s another, PRISM Topic – Fear Not. These two are commands, not suggestions. Do not let the devil get a foothold. It’s the Word of God that will train your mind. When you establish your mind with truth, your enemy cannot ever cause you to be devoured. God’s Word eliminates any foothold. Praying that you will ask God every day what PRISM Topic – He has for you – to build you up, to encourage you, to protect you - to establish you in His truth! It is Life for you!
