For so long, since man fell into sin, death has molded the mentality of mankind. Man always think about death, death, and death. As a result, the ‘dreams’ hidden in man’s heart revolves in leaving earth – welcoming death – successfully. Without knowing, that thought is gnawing our lives. Through any means, death will try to swallow life. At the same time, our mind controls our life!
Proverbs 4:23 (ERV) Above all, be careful what you think because your thoughts control your life.
Supposedly, as a people who’ve been redeemed by Christ – the One who has won over sin, death, and devil – those death-oriented thoughts should no longer exist within us. We only think about eternal things in our lives!
Psalms 118:17 (NKJV) I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.
I am determined to never think about death ever again. I want to guard my heart and direct it towards (think about) eternal things.
Proverbs 4:23 (NKJV) Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.
When life flows, death won’t be able to touch our life at all! Wherever life is, death will surely be removed!
1 Corinthians 15:53-57 (NKJV) For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our part is to always stand strong in meditating the word. Don’t be shaken when the enemy is trying through all means to distract us from God’s word. Be diligent (persevere and devote ourselves) in meditating and speaking the word! #ILoveGod
