Idle mind? Did Eve have an idle mind when the serpent so shrewdly hoodwinked her into believing it was okay to eat from the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil? (Genesis 3)
Well, I can’t speak for Eve, but I know for myself when my mind is idle I am leaving room for that sneaky serpent to slither right in and manage my thoughts. I begin over thinking, negative thinking, selfish thinking, and just plain wrong thinking.
Having idle minds, and that is exactly what the evil one wants of us, is an unproductive way to try to be in control. When we recognize our minds drifting off we can turn our thoughts back to Jesus. He is the One in control after all!
Let God’s love soak into your soul. (http://Isaiah 41:3 )
Ask God to direct your thoughts to follow His will. ( http://Luke 9:23 )
Let’s turn our idle minds to Jesus today friend.
Look Up, Let Go, Live Joy!
