Finding God's Goodness

Week Twenty-Nine. My Mindset. Eternal Confidence.

Month Seven – Valuing My Body. Temperance with faith produces modesty.

How do you walk through life? With confidence and faith that everything is according to God’s plan or living in anxiety just waiting for the next proverbial shoe to drop? My faith is a mindset where I believe in God’s goodness and promises. God directs me to move through my life with physical, spiritual, and emotional confidence. He instructs me to trust that nothing can do real harm to me. For while the Lord sometimes protects our bodies, He always protects our souls. That is pretty amazing. Our souls are always being prepared for our journey of eternal life.

Behold, I have given you the power to ‘tread upon serpents’ and scorpions and upon the full force of the enemy and nothing will harm you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice because the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice because your names are written in heaven.

Matthew 10:17-20

Will I embrace my vocation in the way Jesus instructs today, snakes and scorpions and all? Am I trusting enough to trust the Lord completely? Can I shake off the dust of my feet when I face rejection? Can I leave that baggage I drag around and trust more fully in the Lord? These are the questions I ponder today keeping my mindset straight, practicing temperance in my thoughts and actions. My “stinking thinking” can easily derail my confidence in God’s truth.  But today I will focus on the Lord knowing He has written my name in Heaven and live in eternal confidence.

Thank you Lord for the virtue of tempering my mindset, preparing my soul for eternity.
