I need reminders, how about you? It’s handy having siri to set reminders of things to do so that I don’t forget. But what about reminders that remind our “mind”, our “thoughts”? RE-MIND. “RE” in latin means again and again; a retelling, a repetition. It indicates a withdraw or backward motion. It’s crazy what I find sometimes when I step back and consider what I am thinking on. I can easily be swept away and taken down rabbit trials of weariness, bitterness, hopelessness and everything in between. I can get caught in deception and entangled in what is far from the truth.
What about you? Do you relate? It’s no wonder we are told to “take our thoughts captive.” Our minds are literally a battlefield. Will you step back and ask the Lord to capture your heart and mind?
We need to set re-minders every day, several times a day. Siri can’t do it, but God’s Word can.
Remind us who we are, remind us who You are Lord. Fill our thoughts and set them straight. Set them and fix them on You ~ Your heart of love that never fails and Your strength abundant at every turn! Praise You!
“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:5)
