Daily Devotional - God Thinking Preempt 3

'In a way, for you to make improvement in your life and get beyond your current circumstance, it will be important that you make room in your mind for new light, new inspiration.

The Bible tells us to go into our closet to pray. 
 Matthew 6:6, But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
For many of us, to go into the closet with God we will have to clean out that closet.  Just try to get into a closet when it is full of stuff.  Do you have a closet that is full of stuff?

It is the same with your prayer closet in the inner man.  You can't get into the prayer closet with your inner man if it is full of stuff.  I want you to get a sense of approval from God on this issue - It's OK to dump some of that stuff:
Some of the unused
and in some cases, unfit stuff
to make room for pure Christ.

You wouldn't throw a treasure from God into your junk drawer or cluttered closet would you?  But we do.  We take the very breath of God and mix it with so many lesser things.

What happens to you when you have been taught things that are not from God? 

What happens when you pass that information on to others?

One of our country's great maladies is to recycle bad information.  It comes to us warped and we hold onto it like it is truth.  In many cases we don't even verify it before we act upon it. 

What do you think has happened to the body of Christ, over the centuries, if those who have not confirmed, taught what was not been confirmed as if it were the very Word of God?  

Let me ask you, what happens when you mix some truth with some falsity?  The good information is skewed, lessened, reduced from its intended efficacy."
