It’s Day 2 of the 21-Day Mental and Spiritual Health Series!
Yesterday, I covered the topic of working through feelings and emotions and not allowing them to interrupt our lives. Today, I want to discuss the mental balance that we should strive to achieve.
To live the lives that God wants for us, we need to work to find the right balance in our minds. There are both spiritual and natural elements to creating a healthy mental balance. Investing in our relationship with our Heavenly Father, praying consistently, and confessing positively over our minds and circumstances are vital elements. Additionally, we should surround ourselves with people who will encourage us and help us to grow. It is also important to incorporate positive thinking, physical exercise, balanced nutrition, and stress management into our lifestyles. Our mental state is impacted by many factors, and it takes diligent care to maintain a strong and healthy mental environment.
Each of the elements that I have mentioned are essential to maintaining a healthy mental balance because they will limit the negative, emphasize the positive, and facilitate strong mental-functioning.
Scriptures for Today’s Post
Romans 12:2 (ESV)- Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Philippians 4:8 (ESV)- Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
2 Timothy 1:7 (ESV)- For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
I come before you today, and I pray for a renewal of my mind. I pray that my thoughts will align with your thoughts and that my desires will align with your desires. I break any negative word curses that have been spoken over me or that I have spoken over myself regarding my thoughts, feelings, and emotions. I pray for supernatural strength and guidance as I work to maintain my mental environment and its proper balance. I speak blessings and health to my heart and my mind, and I consecrate myself to you Lord.
In Jesus’ mighty name I pray,
