What are the things that you let your mind dwell on? Do you dwell on the things that worry you? The upcoming episode of your favorite TV show? The looming deadline? The goals you must meet at work? The disagreement you had with your spouse last night? The latest posts on Facebook or other social media? Who won this weeks’ football game? God wants us to dwell on things that are honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable. He wants to dwell on things that are of moral excellence and praise. Did you notice that each of the things we are to dwell on are also character traits of God? When we dwell on these things and on God, then Philippians 4:7 comes to life in our hearts, which says, “And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Dwelling on what is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, of moral excellence and praise will keep our hearts and minds on Christ and He will guard us and give us peace.
