In our day of many negative news stories, we need a reminder of what we should dwell on. I’m not saying we should completely ignore the news. We need to be informed, but dwelling on the ugliness in our world will drag us down. Negativity can also push us to believe lies. We need discernment to think correctly.
God provides a way to keep our minds on what is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely and commendable. His word gives guidance for every situation. God did not give us details on how to handle every situation, but He gives the principles we need.
As we navigate the rough terrain of 2020, we need to seek God to keep our minds focused on what will bring peace. God’s peace. Philippians 4 gives good advice.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for providing truth and the principles we need to seek the truth. Please help us to think on the correct things.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
