For these to grow, good soil is required, and farmers say fertile soil contains mineral particles, organic matter, water, and air. The combinations of these determine the soil’s properties – its texture, structure, porosity, chemistry and colour. Albeit the goal of soil management is to protect soil and enhance its performance, so a farmer can farm profitably and preserve environmental quality for decades to come.
So like soil the mind of a person requires a balanced meal, good sleep, healthy literature, spiritual stimulation, music, and good order. The thoughts are embedded in the mind that can be clean and clear or polluted with poisons of unforgiveness, worries, problems, and heartache, which ultimately work against spiritual growth. Don’t get your mind entangles with problems, have your mind rest in God and you will find the solutions.
Dear Lord I pray that you will take my day and keep my mind safe within the bounds of faith. Open up my spiritual eyes and ears to see and hear the messages from heaven through the Holy Spirit. I know you will give me the wisdom to face the hurdles of this day. In Jesus name, Amen. Dr Cliff Ferguson – Shalom Centurion.
