“Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”Philippians 4:8 NASB
We are called to dwell on what is true. Our minds are to be fixed upon Jesus. Every decision we make in our lives takes place in our minds. When our minds are fixed upon the darkness and wickedness of the world we will make decision based in defeat and based upon the desires of the sinful nature. But when our minds are fixed upon Jesus and His kingdom every decision we make will be in light of God’s kingdom. We will make decisions that increase our relationship with the Lord. The reason so many struggle today is their minds are distracted and not fixed upon the Lord and His kingdom. Let us simply fix our hearts upon Jesus.
