Day 3: Establishing Your Mind & Eyes

From the 40 Days of Daily Bread Series.

Get establishedThe Helmet of Salvation guards your whole head: mind, eyes, ears, mouth. We’ll focus specifically on your thoughts and what you see for today.

Why do you need it?

The enemy attacks your thoughts and tries to distract you. Pray that the Lord would set a watch on your mind and eyes.

And take the helmet of salvation… Ephesians 6:17a.

Daily BreadApply the Word

This section is to help us respond to His promptings. But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. James 1:22

Pray the following verses and declare what is in parenthesis below it. This is how we use the Helmet of Salvation. Write the scripture locations and the declarations beside them in your journal. Praying and writing these verses will help you put the Word into your heart.

  • Mind

Commit your works to the Lord, And your thoughts will be established. Proverbs 16:3 NKJV (My thoughts are established.)

You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You. Isaiah 26:3 NKJV (My mind is staying on God.)

But we have the mind of Christ. 1Cor. 2:16b (I have the mind of Christ.)

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. John 14:26 NKJV (The Holy Spirit will bring scriptures to my memory.)

  • Eyes

I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me. Psalm 101:3 (I will set no wicked thing before my eyes.)

Let your eyes look straight ahead, And your eyelids look right before you. Pro 4:25 NKJV (My eyes are not distracted.)

The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.  Psalm 19:8 (The Word of God enlightens my eyes.)

Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. Proverbs 3:7  (I am not wise in my own eyes.)

What I think and what I see is established with the Helmet of Salvation. [Tweet this]

 

Question: What have you been thinking or focusing on that you need to guard with the Helmet of Salvation?

Our Daily Bread for tomorrow will talk about applying the Helmet of Salvation to your ears and mouth.

  2. I had never saw the NKJV of Proverbs 16:3. I had always memorized it with “and your PLANS will be established”. I really sat and pondered the word “thoughts” in it is place as the NKJV shows and it brought a whole new insight to that verse. When I commit my words to the Lord, the plans I “think out” will be aligned with God, therefore my thoughts will be established in Him.

    Great study! I am really enjoying your approach to the Armour of God!
