Clear the Air

'Keep me from looking at worthless things. Let me live by Your word.' Psalm 119:37 NCV

You could apply today’s verse to your time on the internet, watching tv, shopping… (you get the idea). Anything that involves coming across information or images. So what’s the benchmark of ‘worth’? Philippians 4:8 NLT says this: ‘Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honourable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable.’ If you find you’re taking in a lot of stuff that’s at odds with what God wants, your mental filter for straining out impurities is under attack. It’s been the same since Adam and Eve. The fact that the Psalmist writes about his battle to keep his mind God–honouring is pretty telling. Put it like this: the world we live in has always gravitated toward selfishness. Even if you disconnect yourself completely from the world of technology or never look at a billboard again, there’ll still always be a reason to guard your mind. The answer’s always been the same too: replace the world’s influence with God’s. ‘How I long for Your precepts! Preserve my life in Your righteousness.’ (Psalm 119:40 NIV) What does that look like, then? Actively inviting God to build a guard for your mind through Bible reading and prayer time and teaching podcasts, rather than passively hoping that the world won’t pollute your mind. Is it worth it? Yes. The freedom that comes with looking for what God wants above earthly desires will clear the mind–smog and take you much closer to the fullness God has for you.
