What channel are you watching today? G-O-D or E-V-I-L?
If you watch television, you make a choice about what channel you’re going to watch. If you want to watch football, you tune into a sports channel. If you want to watch the evening news, you choose a news channel. It’s your choice. You have 100% control over the remote that controls that TV. (Unless of course your partner has the remote…and well…that’s a different blog…). But for purposes of this blog, we’re going to speak from the premise that the remote is in your hand! If it isn’t, you can walk out of the room and do something else or watch a different TV…
But back to the main point…You control the content you watch on TV.
Human life is like a big TV screen airing all types of programming. Some is good, and some is nasty and ugly. We are never helpless in the face of any of it, though. We can make choices about what we watch and take in.
For instance, if a neighbor starts spilling out negativity, I don’t have to take it in. I can change mental channels and listen for the voice of Love within coming from God, rather than what the carnal mind is trying to shove into my thinking through this neighbor’s dialogue. Even if their words are hitting my eardrums in the form of sound waves, I still don’t have to take in the negativity. Matter never rules mind. Mind always makes the choices. I can reject the negativity and mentally fill with Love. It’s a choice I can make. And to side with Love has a much better effect on me, and on my neighbor, than siding with evil.
You can make healthy choices too. You possess God-given dominion to think with Truth and Love and to reject negativity and dis-eased ways of thinking. You can change channels from E-R-R-O-R to T-R-U-T-H.
When Jesus Christ instructed, “What I say to you, I say to all: Watch!” Mark 13:37, NKJV, he didn’t mean to watch evil, take it in and let it become a seeming reality to you. He meant to watch for the good, to watch for the coming of Christ, which annihilates evil. That’s how healing happens and the world becomes a better place.
Stay tuned to the G-O-D channel today! You’ll like what you see, and the effect will be so much better.
