When you watch a bad program on TV you are opening a door for bad thoughts in your mind. These bad thoughts make themselves comfortable in your memory and start to negatively direct your life. You lose your peace of mind. Change this immediately because your thoughts determine your life.
This is why apostle Paul teaches people to seek the things that are above, where Christ is. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. Christ is from above and he is our life. When he appears, we will also appear with him in his glory (Col. 3:1-4).
Keep Your Thoughts Peaceful
Do not occupy your minds with negative thoughts, but fill them only with what is Godly. When you go online, and see something that is interesting, but not Godly? Do not follow. When watching a very interesting show or movie on TV, but for some reason it’s tempting your mind? Do not continue watching it. Turn it off when you know a bad thought comes to your mind and know it’s not Godly. I know it’s hard to fight the temptation, but tell God right there that you disagree with this thought ask for the Lord’s help to dispel that thought. Believe me, within seconds those negative thoughts will go away. Keep your Godly peace of mind and your life will change.
Be careful that no one deceives you by empty philosophies of this world, based on human fallacies. In my student years many philosophies were presented to us as highest truth and authority and they would occupy my mind and memory. But one day I realized that they don’t address all of my questions. I didn’t know how to free myself from hatred, how to free myself from forgiveness, how to fight the pride in me. I was subject to all these passions and they make a human being suffer.
You Will Find The Truth if You Seek
One day I found the truth in Jesus Christ. God has disarmed your enemy and called you to the highest honor: to be his children, part of his family. You are qualified because of Jesus Christ. Let’s stay faithful to him. Keep your thoughts and mind clean and full of hope. Stay positive because we have a reason for our hope. Refuse tempting thoughts and you will see how with the help of God your life will change.
