The enemy is the father of LIES- It’s an illusion. Mind games. Can you sense it?

What you watch and read daily is literally rewriting your brain and dictates your thought life which in turn affects your decisions and actions. I stopped watching morning news, daytime tv, evening news, bedtime news, unnecessary movies and tv shows going on 6 years now.

It doesn’t seem like a long time but consider this, it only takes a minimum of 53 days to rewire your brain from your thought life and daily habits. It changed my life with the power of the Holy Spirit as my guide and teacher. He renewed my mind with the word of God, GOOD reports, thoughts of life not death. He renewed my mind. I replaced all the lies and corruption with truth, peace and hope.

I’ve had a heightened concern for “mental and emotional well-being” through all this quarantine, pandemic mess. Why because the media is rewiring your brains. A little each day eventually becomes a chasm. A daily trickle cuts away at a rock everyday and eventually it becomes a deep rut! What the media magnifies will cut deeply into your mind over time engraining a spiritual and natural thought pattern in your life.

A little fear here and there, the illusion of control leads to you biting into a full blown attack of fear and isolation. Next thing you know you are anxious, oppressed and depressed.

The enemy is the father of LIES- It’s an illusion. Mind games. Can you sense it? It’s a real evil agenda but when you give into the Illusion of fear it becomes your reality. Turn off the news and unnecessary programs -Open the word of God, invite them Holy Spirit and begin today to rewrite your brain and thought life. The narrative will change when you start rewriting the story you hear!

Set your mind on things above. Fix your eyes on Jesus. Think on these things.

I love the Philippians 4 passage. I usually study and read in the NKJV but this translation of the Message Bible is plain and I like it.

Shabbat Blessings,



Philippians 4:1-9

My dear, dear friends! I love you so much. I do want the very best for you. You make me feel such joy, fill me with such pride. Don’t waver. Stay on track, steady in God. Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him! Make it as clear as you can to all you meet that you’re on their side, working with them and not against them. Help them see that the Master is about to arrive. He could show up any minute! Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
