As a believer in Christ you have the mind of Christ..
We need to be more dependent on His mind and less dependent on our own.
Too many have way over worked minds !
Many need to be put their minds on a much needed vacation..
In other words.... Give your mind a rest !!
Stop trying to figure it all out and instead faith it Out !
Rest it Out! ... Trust God .
Be Still and know that I am God.. Psalm 46:10
Jesus said come to me and I will give rest to your soul..Matthew 11:29
Our soul is our mind, will and emotions..
Listen to what proverbs says..
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
In Romans 8 it says ...
For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.
For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Romans 8:5-6
You see where it says .. to be carnally minded is death? But to be spiritually minded is life and peace?
To be carnally minded means that you are constantly trying to govern your own life by your own human effort, opinion, understanding and ability apart from the Holy Spirit
The flesh is the soul ( the mind, will and emotions) that attempt to operate independently of the Holy Spirit..
We were never created to live life independent of the Holy Spirit..
In Him we were created to live-and move and have our being ..
What Im saying is that we need to shift our dependence from us to the one who now lives on the inside of Us !!
When we do we will find a lot less stress and a whole lot more life and peace..
