Parked on the Truth - Bonita Y. McCoy

You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
Isaiah 26:3.

We need to park our minds at Jesus's door, the way we park our cars at our destination.

Lysa Terkeurst used this concept in her book Made to Crave. She advises us to park our thoughts on what is lovely, admirable, pure, and noble  Philippians 4: 8.

We need to keep our thoughts on His truths - not on the enemies lies.

We need to recognize truth and use it. God's Word is our truth as Jesus followers, and it's His thoughts on topics and life issues that should form our thinking.

Beware of the enemies lies and do not doubt the Word of God. That's the trick the enemy used on Eve.  "Did God really say, 'You must not eat from any tree in the garden?'" Genesis 3:1.

The enemy planted doubt in her mind about God's word, then he talked her into giving over to her desires.

In order to combat the lies of the enemy, we must keep our thoughts parked on God's truth.

Here are some truth's to park your mind on today:

"God is our refuge and strength an ever present help in trouble." Psalm 46:1

"Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe." Proverbs 29:25

"And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:19

May these bring you peace because you trust in the Lord.

Finding God's beautiful pieces of grace,
