deep and soul searching honesty
“Gird up the loins of your mind and be sober. Take on the full armor of God so you can withstand the fierce attacks of Satan that come to batter you, first this way and then that way. It’s pointless just being “honest” about the same things, again and again, the same battles that you keep allowing him to use the land of your mind for.
You never actually get fully deep and pull out those treasures from the depths of your heart to be discussed and replaced as is needed. When you let the same surface troubles hit you, just because you aren’t willing to fight, you seldom get deep, really deep with the Lord in heartfelt, heart-to-heart communication –deep heart cleansing.
The more time you spend in the Word, the more you are going to get cleansed. Why? Because then the land field, battle-zone of your mind is more protected from the petty things, the repeated distractionary battles. At last you can delve more deeply into what you actually should be dealing with, getting help and prayer for, and taking to the Lord for counsel and renewal.
If you let the little things constantly trouble you, the repeated issues that you are meant to forsake and put out of your mind, then you are just constantly distracted.
So if you find yourself talking to your Lord for the millionth time about something that wouldn’t be a problem anymore if you’d just at last yield to His will in the matter and give up whatever He’s asking of you, then maybe it’s time to have a reboot. It’s time to get “renewed” in your mind, so you can get a bit deeper and talk about some new things that might really matter to you but have been tucked away for so long.
How to get rebooted? Ask for it with all your heart and the Lord can refit your mind and give you new thoughts.
You can become a new you, if you ask. Wanna wake up tomorrow with a new mind and a fresh outlook and gain maturity at the same time? Let the Lord’s mind and thoughts become more your habit. You can only do that with the gift of on-going prophecy, hearing from Him and getting His thoughts about the things you see and do each day.
Just letting His thoughts take over more will cause a mind revolution, which will start a heart revolution. And a revoluted heart is an alive heart that keeps going. It gets addicted to getting and keeping clean and being filled with new waters. It gets used to being right with God and wants to keep letting Jesus’ love and thoughts in deeper and more fully.”
