... if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
Philippians 4:8 NKJV

I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways.

Father, show me any weaknesses I have in my life as a result of believing a lie. Help me identify what truth from Your Word I can use to fight that lie. Give me wisdom as I create daily declarations, and guide me as I begin the process of renewing my mind. In Jesus’ name, amen.
