What kind of thoughts are hiding out in your head? How do they affect your heart, and how you feel about others?
It’s wise to check our thoughts and words, “Do they build up, honor, and leave others feeling loved?” Words and thoughts can change the trajectory of someone’s life, even ours. This screams, our thoughts are important to God for our good and for the good of others.
Truth: God knows our hearts, knows our thoughts and what we will say before a word is formed on our lips.
“You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord.” Psalm 139:4
“You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.” Psalm 139:2
Now, I’m not pointing a finger because I’m guilty of not always having the right thoughts floating around in my head – About myself and others. This can become a battle even when I start my day with the purest of intentions.
Knowing how God sees all and knows all should help position our hearts to receive his thoughts toward us. When we allow God’s thoughts toward us to rule in our heart, soul and mind the lies of the enemy are forced out!
It’s when we look up and not down at others we learn to appreciate the truth of God’s Word. (“Love your neighbor as yourself”) We learn to value the truth of how wonderfully and fearfully we are created. We begin to love like God loves!
Scripture comes alive as we experience in real time the Word of God cutting through the lies of the enemy, and the thoughts corrupting our minds and hearts. (Cutting through soul and spirit).
Imagine – Our thoughts aligned with God’s and the impact it would have on our relationships, and around the world!
I pray you will allow God’s Truth to permeate your thoughts as they resonate in your heart, and negate the lies of the enemy.
Whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable. If anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things.
