Many a time I find myself feeling as though I have been in a washing machine or an emotional rollercoaster when I allow my mind to run around like an uncontrolled child in a lolly shop. But we have been given the steering wheel - the power to choose life or death, blessing or cursing.
With This god-gift of choice and through the power of his enabling grace, we can muster and discipline our mind to focus on things which are of eternal worth (Col 3:2). We begin to understand what Paul means when he says: we have the mind of Christ and do hold the thoughts, (purposes and feelings) of his heart (1Cor 2:16).
I call heaven and earth to witness this day against you that I have set before you life and death, the blessings and the curses; therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live and may love the Lord your God, obey His voice, and cling to Him. For He is your life and the length of your days, that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to give to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
