If therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. Matthew 6:22
On yesterday we talked about the importance of taking no thought, and how the word "thought" comes from the Greek root word meros which means "to get as a section" or "division". Consequently, the enemy's objective is to rent space in our minds so that our attention is divided and our focus is not on God. Whoever controls the mind controls the life. That is the reason it is imperative that we not give the enemy a foothold into our thought lives (Ephesians 4:27). We prevent this type of foothold by immediately casting down every thought that does not line up with the Word of God (2 Corinthians 10:5). Don't rent out space in your mind by meditating on the critical opinions/perceptions of others, adverse circumstances, or any other negative influences! This will zap your strength, distort your vision, and limit your effectiveness in fulfilling the God's purpose for your life. Make sure your eyes are single or focused on God and you are sure to see light in your life!
