Apostle Grace Lubega
Romans 8:5-6 (NIV); Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace
The mind is one of the most powerful tools given by God to man. It has a great and limitless creative capacity.
Napoleon Hill once said that more gold has been mined from the minds of men than the earth itself.
By the use of their minds, men have scaled mountains, conquered nature, and even explored seemingly unexplorable frontiers like space.
These accomplishments by men over the course of history have been both negative and positive, good and evil.
Evil creations and innovations are a result of a mind governed by the flesh. That is what our theme scripture means when it says that a mind governed by the flesh is death. An example of this is the Manhattan Project, a collection of scientists who put their minds together to create the atomic bomb.
On the other hand, a mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. This is the mind that you have as a child of God. Your creations, ideas, and innovations give life and create peace for men.
What you create can never be used to take away life, human liberty, and dignity because your mind is Spirit governed.

PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for the gift of the mind and imagination. You use my mind to create things that will leave a lasting positive impact on the world and transform the lives of multitudes, to the glory of Your name, Amen.
