Has anyone ever left there trash in their house a couple extra days more than they probably should’ve? Maybe forgot to take it out before you went on a weeks vaction? You come back and your house stinks terrible. It’s not just in the kitchen, but you can smell it as soon as you walk in through the door! When we allow thoughts that doesn’t line up with biblical truth in our minds, it’s stinkiness soons reaches our heart and shows through our actions. We reap what we sow in our minds. Sow what the Spirit wants, not of your flesh. When you have a stinky thought, take it out to the trash where it belongs. Kick it to the curb! When we focus and meditate on what The Word of God says after we kick the lies to the curb, we will bear fruit. So.much.fruit! To know and identify the lies to kick them out, we also need to know the truth! I encourage you to really dig into your thought pattern and why you do the things you do. Find those roots or the chicken container you forgot about (so gross) and let Holy Spirit do a work in your heart!
Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.
Romans 12:2 TPT
For those who are living according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh [which gratify the body], but those who are living according to the Spirit, [set their minds on] the things of the Spirit [His will and purpose].
ROMANS 8:5 AMP
For the one who sows to his flesh [his sinful capacity, his worldliness, his disgraceful impulses] will reap from the flesh ruin and destruction, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
GALATIANS 6:8 AMP
