Living with peace of mind!

“The mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.” (Romans 8:6)
What does it mean to have my mind “governed by the Spirit”?
My sense is that I am now living in willing surrender to Jesus as Lord.
In fellowship WITH Jesus by the Spirit, my mind wants to live LIKE and FOR Him.
It is not a burden, because I know in advance that Jesus is FOR me.
Though I struggle and fail, I cannot be stopped.
In Christ the victory is won, I am just stepping into that victory.
Nothing can separate me from God’s love, including sin and Satan’s attacks.
This underlying confidence in grace gives me “life and peace”.
I press on, even when I falter or fail; I get back up with Jesus and keep moving.
In addition, the things I think about are “life and peace”.
I am motivated by the kinds of things that lead to “life and peace”.
The Spirit produces within me things like “love, joy, peace, etc.”
There is no condemnation anymore, I am “more than” a conqueror in Christ!
The ride may be tough, but the destination is guaranteed!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, I have set my heart on living WITH, LIKE and FOR You. This is not easy, for my flesh is weak. But Your Spirit is strong, and I belong to You. Nothing can keep me from Your love!
