From the above scripture it is clear, that God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power love and a sound mind. The Lord is a God of soundness of mind.Your mental health is his priority, hence the desire of God for us to have a sound mind in everything.
The Lord's desire is for us to have a clear mind with which to think well and do good decisions. A polluted mind is a dangerous thing, for from it flow all sorts of wickedness and are an overall disaster to our lives. God wishes us to live victorious in our day to day lives, to live in peace and that includes peace of mind. The Lord would not like us to think about debts, crimes and all other negative stuff that rob the life out of us. Instead he wants us to live with peace of mind.
If you find yourself in circumstances that affect your state of mind, seek help from the Lord on how to get out of it, be it debt, an abusive relationship, a wrong financial or business deal, ask God's help. He is more than willing to help. Often times, what God wishes to help us with we might not be wiling to do,however if we are willing and obedient, we will eat the good of the land. Simply submit your will to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you. God's commands are really simple, if we are willing to follow it.
Do not allow your mind to be a dumping ground for negativity! Your mind should be a fortress of peace, where good and God ideas come from. Don't be overwhelmed by life's struggles, the bible encourages us to cast all our cares unto the Lord.
1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
One way to keep your mind at peace and clean is to follow the scripture in Philippians 4:8
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.
In other words, always focus on things that are true, things that are honest, things that are just, whatsoever is pure that you must focus on.Marriage is pure, fornication outside of marriage that is not pure, focus on what is lovely and of good report, whatever is praiseworthy that you can focus on. If your mind is focused on those, you are guaranteed to live a happy life and a more fulfilled and abundant life(John 10:10). God wants your heart and mind sound and whole.
In conclusion, you might be in a troubled situation with no hope, but still you can be happy and joyful, remember it is a choice of mind and heart, your circumstances should not determine your joy, God should. If you haven't accepted Jesus as your Lord and saviour, now is the right time to meet the Prince of peace! Simply pray: "Jesus forgive me of my sins and heal my heart and mind" If you have prayed this prayer sincerely, God has accepted you as his child, you are born again! Send me a mail and I will be more than happy to assist you in your new walk in Christ. God bless you.
