I saw this bear and wondered, what is he thinking? What goes on in a bear’s mind? As for our minds, we think about a lot of things in any given day, but what should we think on the most?

The Bible verse Philippians 4:8 says: “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

God wants people to internally examine things that are true, honest, and righteous and to focus on positive things so that they can experience peace through God’s power. How do we do this? We go to His Word daily.  I ask Him each morning to help my mind focus on His things during the day, not mine.

When negativity or doubt try to take up space in our minds—we must counter those thoughts with God’s Word, speak His truth to every lie, and memorize scriptures so we have ammo to recite and fight. 

Our Heavenly Father declares that we are seen, we are loved, and we are forgiven!

Focus your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Messiah in God. When Messiah, who is your life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him, in glory!
