Thought Conditioner #3

Renew a right spirit within me. Psalm 5 1:10, KJV

Here is a fragment of a verse which will bring you friends, health, happiness, and success. It can improve your disposition. 

The word disposition refers to the manner in which you are disposed to react to situations and people. If your automatic emotional reaction is irritable, crabby, selfish, haughty, it impairs or even destroys your relationships.

The quality of your disposition depends upon your inner spirit. This thought conditioner, by the use of the word “renew,” implies that when you were created, you had a good disposition.

If you have allowed it to deteriorate, Almighty God, who created you, can recreate and renew in you the fine balance, the controlled spirit. He can restore that vital factor in a good disposition, inner quiet control. Let no day pass after today that you do not say many times, “Renew a right spirit within me.”

~ ~  Norman Vincent Peale

 

Ah, I see my word of the year here – balanced. Living unbalanced I have found is a Soul Blocker which keeps us from receiving God’s renewal no matter how much as we may need to want it.

It all comes down to choice; we have to choose to want that renewal, not only that but we must put ourselves in a place to receive renewal. Are you spending quality time with Jesus, in silence and solitude? Are you harboring resentment, negativity, or persistent sin? Is there anything that would block your soul from receiving Gods’ best?

Reflect: In what way do you prevent this needed renewal? Have you overcome things that block the Spirit’s renewal?
