The end and culmination of all things is near. Therefore, be sound-minded and self-controlled for the purpose of prayer [staying balanced and focused on the things of God so that your communication will be clear, reasonable, specific and pleasing to Him.]1 Peter 4:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version
How can you be sound minded if you are watching unsound garbage which passes for entertainment on TV or in the movies
How can you be sound minded with the rubbish they call music screaming in your ears with its enticing you to live a life that is filthy in Jehovahs eyes?
Garbage in , garbage out. If you listen to this garbage it will pollute your mind to emulate this rubbish.
Is it not better to listen to music that praises our Beloved Heavenly Father.
How can you be self controlled if you have no control over your mind? When you watch this trash that passes for entertainment on TV and in the movies, it will draw you into that lifestyle like a alluring siren tried to lure that ship to destruction in a Greek mythology tale of Jason and the Argonauts .
Is it not better to mediate on the Bible and a relationship with Jehovah? Why not watch programs that are Christian like on Dove Channel or purflix.
How can your mind be focused on Jehovah while being clouded with the filth of the world?
Personally, many times I find satan filling my mind with drawing it away from talking with Jehovah with stupid things like thinking about what to have for a meal or what the weather is. He will do anything to interfere with our loving conversation with our cherished Heavenly Father. This is why we need to practice concentrating and being close with Jehovah so when satan tries this we just tell him to shove off. Do not think he will leave, he will be a pest all through out your prayer time. This is good because it shows you are getting close with Jehovah which is what satan hates the most.
The only way for our communication to be clear, reasonable, specific and pleasing to Jehovah is if we are using the language in which He speaks. If He does not speak the devils language why do you think He would listen to yours? Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Please Jehovah El Shama (God who hears) bless me to always speak Your language not just to You but to those I come in contact with every day. I sincerely request this in the name of He who speaks the most eloquently of them all Jesus Christ. Amen
May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.
