Psalm 29:11 - September 29, 2015
Attack your problem with the word of God.
I believe in counseling, but I don’t believe in eternal counseling.
Sin is the root of most problems—and when you’re ready to stop the sin, you will find the peace of God!
When you start living by the word of God, lots of things solve themselves instantly. A Christian chooses to be depressed when he refuses to live by the principles of God’s word.
Whoever does not have the fruit of the spirit is not living in the spirit. Quit chattering about being spirit-filled when you’re walking around acting like you were baptized in lemon juice. If you’ve accepted Christ, you’re a new creature.
Spend time every day meditating on the word of God.
Your mind is like a computer, and as it is with a computer, so it is with your mind: garbage in, garbage out. When you read Playboy, that’s garbage in, and all that can come out is garbage. When all you think about is trash, all that can come out is trash. If you want to have the happiness of God, have the holiness of God. “Blessed is the man…[whose] delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night” (Psalm 1:2). When you meditate on the word of God day and night, when you think about things that are good, true, honest and of good report your brain will be affected with the hope that is steadfast and sure.
