Romans 8:6
For to be carnally minded (sense and reason without the Holy Spirit) is death, but to be Spiritually minded is life and peace.

Lately I have been really meditating on this verse.  Spiritually minded = life and peace.  I want life and peace.  John 10:10 says that Jesus came so that we can have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows.)  Peace is a fruit of the Holy Spirit and we are the temple of the Holy Spirit.  
So how do I get Spiritually minded?  Easy!  He gave us His Word, the living, active, powerful Word.  The more we trust in, rely on and believe what His Word says, the less we will be sense and reason minded.  In the same chapter of Romans, verse 32, it says that if God spared not his own Son, but delivered Him up for us, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things!

Thank you Father for life and peace!  You have provided it, and I am taking it no matter what I see, hear, feel or reason.  Thank you for your living Word that changes me as I look to you for everything!
