Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit.
Romans 8:5 (NLT)
“What were you thinking?” Have you ever had anyone ask you that? Usually it’s after something goes wrong. There was a misjudgment and your thinking has been brought into question. But Paul is suggesting something different. He says we should purposeful before we think and watch what we let dominate our mind. Paul suggests that it is either the Spirit of God or our sinful nature. What a world of difference the two mindsets have on our life. The mind dominated with the sinful nature leads to sinful thinking and behavior. The mind controlled by the Spirit of God leads us to do things that please the Spirit. Today, say “No” to the sinful nature with its temptation and lust. Instead, be controlled by the Holy Spirit.
Father, I want to live my life for You. Let Your Holy Spirit control my thinking. I give You my mind; guide me, direct me, lead me into Your will.
