What’s Playing?

If someone were able to view what is going through your mind at any given time, what television show would it resemble?

Fear Factor – always fearing what is to come.  II Tim. 1:7; Mt. 6:27
Survivor – looking out for number one at all costs, even if it means you must be conniving and deceitful about it.  Mk. 4:19; I Pet. 2:1
Jeopardy – planning and thinking of things that could put your spiritual life, your marriage, your family, your church, or your job in jeopardy.  James 1:1-13-15
Beat the Clock – always running your schedule through your mind, trying to beat the clock so that you can move on to the next adventure, forgetting to take the time to be still and know that He is God.  Ps. 46:10
Who’s the Boss? – always playing scenes over in your mind on how you plan to assert yourself over your husband.  I Pet. 3:1-6
Judge Judy – playing judge and jury toward other people.  Mt. 7:1
Divorce Court – planning a strategy for divorcing your mate. Mal. 2:16;  Mt. 19:3; I Cor. 7:11, 27
Temptation Island – what temptations play through your mind? Mt. 6:13, 26:41; I Cor. 10:13
QVC – Are you always planning your next shopping excursion because you are a compulsive shopper?  Tit. 2:12
Storm Stories – having the constant trials of life playing over and over, without end.  Jas. 1:2; II Pet. 2:9

If someone were able to view the scenes in playing through your mind, would those scenes line up to what Phil. 4:8 tells us?  Do you think upon that which is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, and praiseworthy?  You may think that no one sees, but God sees all things.  Do you need to sit before Him, allowing Him to cleanse your heart and mind?  Is it time to allow God’s Word to saturate your being, causing your mind to be renewed?  Rom. 12:2
