Oh, God, I know a troublesome problem can become an idol in my mind. Sometimes my fears overcome my faith and confidence. If I consistently think about something—pleasant or unpleasant—more than I think about You, I know it’s a subtle form of idolatry. Help me today to examine my thoughts and discard all those not centered on your providential goodness and grace toward me.
I earnestly want to do better at this, for Jesus’ sake. Amen
Verse for today:
“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:5)
