Space For Rent

Standard

Many of us have space for rent and we don’t even realize it! The worst part is that the people who are “renting” from us aren’t paying a dime!

So you’re wondering what space I’m talking about?

Our Minds.

God created our little heads to be full of all kinds of compartments and drawers. It’s mind-blowing! 🙂

What many of us don’t realize is that we allow people to live in our minds for free! Unfortunately, the people we allow to live there are people who have hurt us, taken advantage of us and the list goes on!

You and I are in charge of our minds. We dictate who is allowed in!

There is only One who has paid for the space in our minds. Jesus Christ.

He paid the ultimate price but yet sometimes we give Him limited space in our minds.

This has been something that I have struggled with for years. I can say that I have experienced God’s freedom in this and it feels so good!

If you are struggling with “people” in your mind, this is a great verse to pray over yourself!

Romans 8:6b – “…but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” The New Living Translation says “…But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.”

This is a verse that I have prayed often over myself and family. I simply say “I thank you Father God that my mind is controlled by the Spirit and that brings life and peace in my life!”

Not only is it important to pray and speak it; it’s important to allow it to happen in our lives!

I hope this encouraged you! Thanks for reading! Would love to hear feedback!

Joyfully His!
