helmet-978558_1920God calls His children to live in the light and be clearheaded.  It’s easy to want, but walking it out can be a challenge.  With so many things competing for a place in our mind, we must be to keep our mind focused on the plans and purpose He has for us.

The scriptures say faith comes from hearing, hearing from the Word of God (Romans 10:17).  We protect our minds when we take time to get His Word planted deep in our hearts.  Faith grows as we begin to see the Word we know applied to the circumstances we face in life.

We also protect our minds as we allow the love of God to work in our life.  II Timothy 1:7 reminds that God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.  God is love.  The more we allow Him into our life, the more we protect our sound mind.

The confidence of our salvation is the other way we allow our minds to be clearheaded.  We are told to put on the helmet of salvation (Ephesians 6:17).  Salvation is the completed work that was don’t on the cross.  We can have confidence that regardless of what comes against us, Christ has already conquered it.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try the believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you
