Guard Your Mind!

“Guard your heart…for it determines the course of your life.” (Proverbs 4:23 NLT)

When Satan sets out to destroy you, he starts by planting wrong thoughts in your mind.


Jesus illustrated this when He said, “The law of Moses said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say: Anyone who even looks at a woman with lust in his eye has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matthew 5:27-28 TLB). Before you surrender to sin in reality, you entertain it as fantasy. Evil thoughts aren’t really yours until you allow them to move in and have a seat on sofa of your mind.” Evil thoughts left unchecked run wild through your mind, a thought can attach itself to an incident in your past or a situation in your present and feed on it until it’s like a tumor growing inside you.


Paul warns, “Take captive every thought…make it obedient to Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5 NIV). And Solomon writes, “Guard your heart…for it determines the course of your life.” Don’t give wrong thoughts an inch or they will take a mile. Evict them before they weaken your commitment to Christ and leave you in the place of regret.


Generally speaking, when we clean house we focus on what others can see and inspect. Imagine how much mental junk we collect because we think nobody sits in our heads examining our thoughts.

But God does! David said, “Lord…you know all about me” (Psalms 139:1 CEV). Knowing that should lead you to pray: “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord” (Psalms 19:14).
