    Clothing Your Mind

    Monday, July 31, 2017

    Life gets so busy and it seems we are always in a rush. Do you ever walk out the door and later realize you forgot to put something on? Or maybe you have even put on two different colors of shoes and not noticed until you were shopping or at work. We all do crazy things at times because we are always in a hurry. If we do these things with our outer wear, what do we do with our inner spiritual life?

    My devotion recently spoke to this subject and how we should clothe our mind with Him. Enjoy!

    “Seek My Face at the beginning of your day. This practice enables you to “put Me on” and “wear Me” throughout the day. Most people put on clothes soon after arising from bed. Similarly, the sooner you “put Me on” by communicating with Me, the better prepared you are for whatever comes your way.

    To “wear Me” is essentially to have My mind; to think My thoughts. Ask the Holy Spirit to control your thinking; be transformed by this renewal within you. Thus you are well equipped to face whatever people and situations I bring your way. Clothing your mind in Me is your best preparation for each day. This discipline brings Joy and Peace to you and those around you.

    Don’t get in such a rush that you forget to clothe your mind with Him before you start your day!
