Let me control your mind. The mind is the most restless, unruly part of mankind. Long after you have learned the discipline of holding your tongue, your thoughts defy your will and set themselves up against Me. Man is the pinnacle of my creation, and the human mind is wondrously complex. I risked all by granting you freedom to think for yourself. This is a godlike privilege, forever setting you apart from animals and robots. I made you in My image, precariously close to deity.
….When my Spirit is controlling your mind, you are filled with Life and Peace.
~Jesus Calling April 21
May I pray for us? Let’s get on our knees together; I’ve got your hand in mine.
“Father-God, we worship you. We come before you thanking you for Jesus because only by His Holy Spirit can our minds be changed. We don’t want to be independent thinkers. We want to be controlled by your Spirit. May our thoughts bring life so that our words and actions will be life giving in all situations. Only by Your grace. This way of thinking not only blesses us, Lord, but it will spill blessings out on those around us. Thank you for this opportunity. A controlled mind is an abundant-life mind. We surrender our independence! Amen.”
