- FEED our mind on God’s word daily; Begin your day with the Lord, reading His word as the Spirit directs you. For Jesus said “Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God”. We need our spiritual daily bread, as much as our physical daily bread.
- FREE our mind from destructive and negative thoughts; We have control over the thoughts that we choose to entertain. That is why he has given us a free will. Bring very negative and destructive thought into obedience to Christ. When a negative thought appears, reprove it in Jesus name, and turn your mind toward the Lord.
- FOCUS our mind on Jesus, our purpose (in light of eternity), and serving others. Realize that it is God’s Spirit that lives in you. And so treat your temple with respect, and use it as an instrument to serve the Lord, and His other creatures. Ask yourself, “What Would Jesus Do?” when confronted with a challenge, and see His guidance and direction daily.
