Be Careful What You Think

If you are going to win the battle of the mind and defeat your enemy, where you focus your attention is crucial. The more you meditate on God’s Word, the stronger you’ll become and the more easily you’ll win the victories.

Too many Christians don’t realize the difference between meditating on the Bible and reading the Bible. They like to think that whenever they read God’s Word, they’re absorbing the deep things of God. Those who meditate on God’s Word are those who think–and think seriously–about what they’re reading.

They may not put it in these words, but they are saying, “God, speak to me. Teach me. As I ponder Your Word, reveal its depth to me.”

In today’s scripture I quoted from Psalm 1. This psalm begins by defining the person who is blessed, and then points out the right actions of that person. The psalmist wrote that those who meditate–and do it day and night–are like productive trees…and everything they do shall prosper.

The psalmist made it quite clear that meditating on God’s Word brings results. As you ponder who God is and what He’s saying to you, you’ll grow. It’s really that simple. If you read about and allow your mind to focus on God’s love and power, that’s what operates in you.

Be careful what you think about. The more you think about good things, the better your life will seem. The more you think about Jesus Christ and the principles He taught, the more you become like Jesus and the stronger you grow. And as you grow, you win the battle for your mind.

Pray: Lord God, help me to think about the things that honor You. Fill my life with a hunger for more of You and Your Word so that in everything I may prosper. I ask this through Jesus Christ. Amen.

Kapin village Encounter

Words by Simon Wong – Students@ YWAMKONA

We can finally say we live in the jungle! Going up the mountains on a small truck with almost 20 of us packed in when it was dark has got to be one of the best experience I’ve had in my life.

The view was so magic and unreal, coupled with the most thrilling rollercoaster ride of my life, this is an experience I would never want to forget.

Hiking up and down the mountains just to show people the love of Jesus was definitely so worth it! Seeing lives saved and transformed and pointing all that glory to God brings me so much joy.

Knowing that we are bringing a little of Heaven down each time we go out and do these things just pushes me on to do more and more for His Kingdom.

Thank God for all the souls won, all the healings, all the encounters the villagers had, all of His presence poured out, and most of all, keeping us all safe and sound.
