Forget all evil reports: don’t allow evil reports lodge in your heart-they are faith killers. It was the evil reports of the ten spies in the wilderness that weakened the heart of multitudes of the children of Israel and made them lose sight of God’s power and faithfulness. Pondering over evil reports will hinder you from getting to you desired heights in life. Fill your mind with testimonies of the past goodness of God.
Forget past achievements: while it is important for you to constantly recall Gods faithfulness and goodness in your life in times past, glorying in your past achievements will result in pride, and compliancy. Always remember that you belong to God and the power to do as well as the power to will all comes from him. Whatever you have achieved so far is from God; therefore, there is nothing to glory in. also remember that God hates the proud in heart and will abase them. Paul the apostle realized this, which made him declare in Philippians 3:13, “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.”
Dear reader, as your journey through life, thoughts will jostle for residency in your heart as you journey towards the fulfillment of Gods purpose for you but you must resolve to allow nothing other than God’s precepts, promises and assurances to dwell in you. Let your mind stay only on God.
Don’t allow old negativities, grudges, worries and fears crowd your mind. Let Gods counsel in Philippians 4:8 be your watchword, “finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
Do this always, and the peace of God will never cease to flow in you and through you.
