Put on the Mind of Christ

“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus” Philippians 2:5

For years I had allowed myself to have an undisciplined thought life. I was preoccupied and consumed with all kinds of thoughts, and had grown so accustomed to living this way that I thought it was normal. As I began to grow spiritually, God began to teach me His will is soundness of mind.

A sound mind is a calm mind. It is peaceful, focused and clear, and it can only be received through Christ. In writing to the believers in Philippi, the Apostle Paul wrote, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.” The word “let” denotes an action on our part. If we want to experience peace of mind, we must practice putting on the mind of Christ. We put on the mind of Christ by receiving what God has said in His Word about who we are, how He has called us to live, and what He has called us to do.

When thoughts come to our minds that are contrary to the truth of God’s Word, we have a God-given responsibility to consistently cast it down and bring into captivity every thought in the obedience of Christ. We can’t let those thoughts roam freely in our minds, unchecked, because they can rob us of our peace and keep us from trusting in God.

Say out loud right now, “I cast down every vain imagination and every high thing that is trying to exalt itself against the knowledge of God and I bring into captivity every single thought in the obedience of Christ. I put on the mind of Christ. I will develop the godly habit of taking authority over my mind. I receive peace of mind and soundness. In Jesus name. Amen.”

(Read 2 Timothy 1:7; Isaiah 26:3; 2 Corinthians 10:5)

  5. I’m getting better at this but still have a way to go. I struggle when it comes to my husband. I must put into practice winning his understanding without a word in the spirit of meekness and gentleness without any fear or amazement. The fear and amazement part is what gets me! Sometimes I stew and brew at him having the nerve to be a certain way! But there is no perfect peace offered to my mind without my trusting in God’s way of doing things and His timing in dealing with other’s hearts even my own.

  6. Amen..Amen..Amen!!!!!
