I have been struggling with random thoughts for awhile now. Normally, after I catch myself in my thoughts, I will recite scripture. The thoughts can be really crazy at times, where I think I'm losing my mind. I recognize the thoughts as distractions and part of spiritual warfare, so I make it a point to dress myself daily with the armor, especially the helmet of salvation. Anybody read the Battlefield of the Mind?
Today, I am praying for others like me, who are experiencing the battle of our mind. Today I read in my devotion time to just repeat, I trust you, Jesus. So today, when the thoughts come, I will repeat those very words, will you try to do the same?
Lord, today we come before you, giving you all honor and glory. Thank you for revealing the distractions of our thoughts and giving us the power to overcome. Today, we will tighten our helmet of salvation. Today, we will guard our eyes and ears, careful of what we take in around us. We recognize the thoughts are not of you, because they try to make us fearful, and you have not given us the spirit of fear! Thank you today for victory over the distractions of our thoughts. Thank you that we can stand on your Word this day!! I trust you, Jesus!! Amen. Amen. Amen.
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
