MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to
do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB
*____Our mind is much more
than an organ of assistance to the spirit; it also is the place wherein we obtain light. The Spirit of God dispenses light [revelation] to the mind through the spirit. If the mind is overexerted it relinquishes the power
of receiving His Light [from one's inner being]. The Enemy understands that if our mind is darkened our whole being enters into darkness; he consequently strives with all his effort to provoke us to think so very much that
we are unable to work quietly.
____To walk after the spirit [their inner man] a believer must inhibit their mind from evolving endlessly [being overactive].
If it turns too long around one topic, worries or grieves too much over matters, and ponders too intensively to know God's Will, it may become unbearable and hamper its normal operation. The mind needs to be kept in a steady and secure state.
...."The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. Take heed therefore
that the light which is in thee be not darkness".... Luke 11:35 KJV
____...."We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the true knowledge of God [and
who we ALREADY are, in Christ], and we are taking EVERY thought captive [through proclamation] to the obedience of Christ [a revelation of the Father's Heart and Will]"....
2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB
