Living It Out By Faith Pt. 5
For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Romans 8:5-6 NKJV
I know I mentioned this last week but the Lord really wants to communicate this principle to you! Being carnally minded is not just lusting all the time or thinking of sinful things and desires. It’s simply a mind set on the flesh, on our natural surroundings or circumstances.
A common way that people are carnally minded without even realizing it is worry. If you’re worried about getting your needs met, or worrying about a situation or a relationship or any number of things that could stress you out, you’re being carnally minded and not trusting God.
The good news is, you can choose what you think on! Jesus said you can’t add anything to your life by worrying (Matthew 6:27), but you can add to your life by meditating on His word! You get to decide if you will allow worry to rule your thoughts, or if you will choose to think on the Word of God! Thinking on the good things that God has said in His word will bring life and peace into your life! So choose to think on good things today, and kick worry out of your mind!
Be Blessed and Encouraged,
