Detox Your Mind

Great devotional that I received this week. I personally practice confessing (agreeing with) God's word over my life each day. My favorite verses that I have memorized & that I remind myself of daily are: Galatians 2:20, Galatians 5:22-23, 2 Cor. 10:4-5 and a few others. I would encourage you continue to meditate on and confess God's living Word over your heart and mind so that you can keep the toxic thoughts from the enemy from poisoning your life.

Detoxing Your Mind
Today's Scripture

“Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life” (Proverbs 4:23 AMP).
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria

When something is toxic, it’s poisonous; it can destroy you. When we go around dwelling on the wrong thoughts, thinking about what we can’t do or how we’ll never get ahead, those thoughts are toxic thoughts. Toxic thoughts left alone become like toxic waste that sinks into your heart. It will eventually contaminate your whole life. It affects your self-image. It affects your attitude, your level of confidence, and ultimately, your success. That’s why the scripture says to guard your heart because the condition of your heart and mind determine the condition of your whole life.

Make the decision today to detox any negative, self-defeating thoughts by meditating on God’s promises instead. Make the decision to detox bitterness, detox low self-esteem, detox negative words that may have been spoken over you, detox condemnation. Make the decision to dwell on what God says about you. God says, “You are forgiven.” God says, “Your best days are in front of you.” God says, “I’ll restore the years that the enemy has stolen.” As you detox your mind and fill your thoughts with His promises, you’ll see His hand of blessing on your life. You’ll rise up higher, and you’ll live the abundant life He has for you!
