A Sound Mind

Do you sometimes have so much on your mind that you can’t remember everything? Does your mind seem so jumbled at times that you don’t have the clarity you need? Second Timothy 1:7 states: “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” So if we were created with a sound mind how did our minds get so jumbled?

When you fast and are away from television, radio programs, the Internet, and other such distractions, your mind will be clear and more peaceful. God knew what He was doing when He incorporated fasting in our lives as it is during this time we are more aware of Him, and we can hear His voice more clearly through His Word and Spirit. Many think they could never fast or give up their food, but I have found out that even with cancer when I fast even for just a day my mind is clearer to see things God’s way. “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You” (Isaiah 26:3).
