praiseworthy,exellence

jesusFrom “Today In The Word”, Philippians 4:8-9, “If anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things”. When we dwell on the beauty and wonder of God, we are drawn closer to who He would like us to be. We are to remember what we have learned about God from His Word and practice these things. We are to be conformed to the image of Christ, and all the good and positive things reflected in His character. This is one way that the “God of peace” will be with us (v. 9). What is your mind dwelling on today? Are you thinking about concerns, worries, problems, and anxieties? We have been told instead to refocus our mind on what is pure and good and true. Reject the tendency we have to be mired in earthly troubles and try to refocus your mind on the things of God. Then, we will discover God’s peace dwelling in us.
