Three Powerful Verses from Romans 8

“For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.” – Romans 8:6

“And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” – Romans 8:27

“Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.” – Romans 8:33

Lord you provide life and peace to your people. You intercede for the saints; it is your will to do so. You cannot be accused and your people cannot be accused because of your justification through your Son.

Father, help me to lift my mind off my flesh and on to the spirit. I want to have your eyes and the mind fo Christ. Help me to focus on your, see your glory, and have an accurate view of my position before you. Humble me and let me esteem others as better than myself. Forgive my arrogance. Forgive me for being so concerned with the things of this world. Forgive me for not seeing you in all that I am and all that I do. Forgive me for not giving you the due honor you so deserve.

Thank you that you do intercede for me. Thank you that you give life and peace to those who set their mind on the Spirit. Thank you for your defense of us against our sin through the work of Jesus.

Father, help me to think of you more. Help me to wrap my entire life around you and see your blessing and hand in everything I do, see, hear, smell, touch, and even taste. Make me more than a conqueror of my sins. Make me stronger in my faith. Give me a heart that is pure and help me to desire your will for my life, my family, my friends and those around me. Make me more like you every day.
