SEPTEMBER 12: Guard Your Imaginations
“Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 1:13
The “loins of your mind” in this Scripture is a reference to your imagination or the seat of procreative power that is inside of you. Your imagination is given to you by God to be a part of the shaping of your life of faith and hope. It is instrumental in what comes to pass in your life. Of course we see in the word imagination the word image. The images or the pictures that we see clearly on the inside are what we seek to become in life. The imagination is like an incubator. Whatever you imagine or meditate on is going to be what you become. Paul told us in Ephesians 6:14 that our loins should be girdled with the truth; the truth being the Word of God. We must make sure that we harness our imaginations and not let them stray into anything that is contrary to the Word of God. Tighten up your mind today; keep your imagination in check.
