My filter keeps me happy

I have a filter on my kitchen sink to help make my water pure. I need one on my stream of consciousness to help make me pure.

Be the gatekeeper of your heart and mind. Let in the good; keep out the bad. Temptation says to ignore your inner filter. That’s because it wants to deceive you and mess you up. It does little good to filter the spam out of your email if you don’t filer it out of your heart and mind.

Turn on the filter of your conscience. Cast out the junk bonds in your heart that have bound you to negativity and rebellion.

To live well, filter well. No filter; no inner peace. To know how to live with inner peace you must know how to filter out the inner disturbers of your peace

God’s grace gives you the filter known as your conscience. It’s up to you to keep it turned on and to follow its instructions. Before you act on impulse, run it through your conscience. If it disapproves don’t do it.

To turn down the filter of your conscience opens you up to all sorts of mental and emotional pollution. Keep your conscience activated 24/7/365!

If you don’t know how to actively filter your thoughts, feelings, and desires, you’ll lack inner peace. “Blessed are the peacemakers.” Begin within. Be an inner peacemaker. Filter the disturbers of your inner peace out of your mind, will, and emotions.

Filter the conflict out of your heart. Then your words and actions will help lead others to peace.

“There is none righteous, no not one.” Everybody needs to let the voice of God in their conscience filter them. If you don’t continually filter and weed your heart and mind, the fruit of the Spirit won’t grow abundantly within you.

In order to obey the Bible and “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things,” you must filter. To obey the command to think on the good things of Philippians 4:8, it’s necessary to filter out bad thoughts, feelings and desires.

Filter everything out of your life that tries to make you disobey Jesus’ command to “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.” To repent is to filter the sins out of your life.

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness.” Filter the junk foods of unrighteousness out of your soul. Refuse to consume them.

“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.” Filter out false guilt. Repent of real guilt.

“Above all else, guard your heart.” –Proverbs 4:23. Filter, filter, filter! Peace comes from actively filtering out the influence of the flesh, the world, and the demons and joyfully surrendering to the loving presence and leadership of God’s Spirit.

“Humble yourself,” Filter pride out of your heart and mind.

Pray The Filter Prayer: Jesus, help me to filter my thoughts, feelings, and desires and keep out the one’s that aren’t in your will.

If you don’t
Learn to filter
Your heart and mind,
Your life will be
Out of kilter.

It’s important to filter
Your inner being
And keep every wilter,
Everything that
That dries up your peace,
Far away.

Unfiltered media
Is like buying
A trip on Expedia.
If you click on it,
It will take you
Wherever it goes.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
