“Peace Amid Non-stop Thoughts,”
July 9, 2023 |Sam Neno
Mind won’t shut down?
Ever hear, “Give it to God”? “Leave it at the altar”? Ever find those difficult to do? What do those things mean?
carnal (of the flesh) responses make things worse: instinctive, worldly; EX: deal with it, forget it, drugs, alcohol, escapism, suffer & act apart from God, lacking trust in Him, not seeking Him; EX:
Verses on peace: Isaiah 25:3 (trust, think on Him), Phil. 4:4-7 (pray)
strongholds: lies enemy has us believing… fear, doubt, worry
Imaginations: logismos = reasoning, imagination (things we “think up” in our mind or are introduced to us)
