Where is Your Head Today?

“For those who live according to the flesh have their outlook shaped by the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit have their outlook shaped by the things of the Spirit. ‭‭

Romans‬ ‭8:5-6‬ ‭NET‬‬

God has given us the ability to imagine our day, our tomorrow, our future.

Paul said that the imagination shaped by the flesh is fear and death and that the imagination nourished by the Spirit of God is life and peace.

The thing is, we get to choose which imagination we live in.

We get to choose our thoughts and not live in a world where they choose us.

A world where they hijack your day and lead you to a mental torture chamber.

My friend, God gives you Himself fully and His power lavishly to you.

Yes, you.

Ask Him.

You need help and God will help you.

He will empower you to take hold of your thoughts and submit them to Him.

He will empower you to leave the fearful imaginings on the floor and take hold of the truth of God in your life.

He will empower you to see yourself and your future from His perspective.

Where is your head?

What is it filled with? 

What do you need God’s help with today?

Life and Peace

“For those who live according to the flesh have their outlook shaped by the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit have their outlook shaped by the things of the Spirit.” ‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:5-6‬ ‭NET‬‬

God has given us the ability to imagine and shape our thoughts – we call it our imagination.  He gave us the ability to imagine our day, our tomorrow, our future.

The imagination nourished by the Spirit of God is life and peace.

The imagination shaped by the flesh is fear and death.

The thing is, we get to choose.

My friend, today you have permission to take a mental vacation from fear and set your imagination free to dream some God-sized dreams.

Where is your head?

What is it filled with? 

What will you choose to think about today?

Imagine This

“For those who live according to the flesh have their outlook shaped by the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit have their outlook shaped by the things of the Spirit.” ‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:5-6‬ ‭NET‬‬

There is a war for your thoughts and for your imagination.  God gave you the ability to imagine and shape your thoughts.  He gave you the ability to imagine your day, your tomorrow, your future.

Many people believe that you can’t control your thoughts or the direction of them but that is not what the Bible says in the verse above.

The imagination nourished by the Spirit of God is life and peace.

The imagination shaped by the flesh is fear and death.

The thing is, you get to choose.

You have free will and God will never take it from you.
What you think, how you think is up to you.

This is not about creating your future with positive thoughts. This is about consciously choosing to fix your mind on Jesus Christ and allowing Him to shape your outlook.

“Do not be conformed to this present world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may test and approve what is the will of God – what is good and well-pleasing and perfect.” ‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭NET‬‬

You have permission, my friend, to take a mental vacation from fear and set your imagination free to dream some God-sized dreams today.

Where is your head?

What is it filled with?

What does it mean for you to set your imagination free and let God dream for your life?
