There is no time in history we have had this much access to information. Every day, we have the power to unlock loads of information. Just at a click, we can open up data and files to study and research in a split of seconds. This is an amazing thing in this generation. On the other hand, there is access to many information that is not good for your mind. If you choose just to sit down and scroll through any of the common social media platforms, you will be surprised by the content people put out there. I bet you will see some feeds that you will wish you had not seen as a Christian. It is easy to have much information diffuse through your mind through an unselective scroll on social media. It appears to me that more than ever before, the walls of partition between what is acceptable and what is not seem thinner. Many pieces of information in our present world can easily cross-pollinate and contaminate.
If there is any time that we have to do what we were advised as children of God to do in the book of Proverbs 4:23, it is now. It writes, ” Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flows the springs of life.” We have a responsibility to be choosy about what we see on social media, be careful about what we read and be selective about what we meditate on. The real battlefield of your life is your mind. The devil knows this, and he is willing to organize contents that become weights to you and slow you down.
The book of Colossians 3:16 admonishes us; “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
Please be intentional about the things you see and the words you listen to. Let the word of God dwell in you richly. This in itself is victory over many battles against your mind. When you have engaged good themes on your mind, you will sing with grace in your heart to the Lord, and you will be able to say like the Psalmist that my heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. I wish you a victorious life and a victorious day.
