Making Our Mind to Mind

“And we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Co. 10:5b (NIV)

I love to reminisce about special times. Bringing back to mind those things that once brought me joy and happiness is something I often do. Unfortunately, every once in a while, my mind also recollects events and words that were not so kind to my heart. When those thoughts begin to creep in, I immediately put on first gear on making my mind to mind by not allowing it to control my mood and take me down a path of sadness and blues, thus, away from God’s will from me.

Who does not remember the woman mentioned in the Bible as Lot’s wife? When she and her husband were ordered to leave Sodom and not look back, because that city, along with Gomorrah, was going to be destroyed by God due to the sins of their people, she looked back and turned into a statue of salt.

Sometimes, our disobedience can cause us much doom, as did the disobedience of Lot’s wife. I wonder if we disobey because we think too much, sometimes we allow our minds to wander and to question the reason why we were told to do something in the way we were told to do it. I wonder if that is what caused Eve to sin in the garden. After all, she and her husband Adam had been told not to eat from one specific tree when they had an entire garden to enjoy. She questioned and she sinned.

God created us for His pleasure. He created us in His own image, so that we could be excellent in every aspect of our lives, and act excellently in our actions. But somehow, that did not stick with Adam and Eve, as they allowed their minds to wander and then followed the unworthy path that took them down.

As children of the Almighty God, we are given specific instructions on how to live our lives. If we trust His leadership and obey His commands, we will be blessed. Let us keep our minds synced with His Word and live the bountiful life He wills for us.


“Father God, we often stray from Your instructions because we allow our minds to wander. Please help us, Lord, to stay the course and to align our will to Yours.”


For His Glory
