As You Think

Proverbs 23:7

For As He Thinketh In His Heart, So Is He

 

Our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected. Our behavior is controlled by the words that we have inside of us, whether they are words of life or words of death. So think about who is giving you those thoughts you are having. The spiritual battle we all face is won or lost by the words we allow to rule in our thoughts. Our thoughts will either draw us closer to the Lord Jesus Christ or further away.

 

We think an average of seven thoughts a second. Based on those figures, in a years’ time, we would have thought about 219,971,200 thoughts. If you multiply that figure by 70 (70 years) you get fifteen billion, forty million, twelve thousand and eight hundred thoughts. Who is in control of those thoughts? God or the Devil? Are the thoughts in your mind bringing you victory or defeat?

 

The mind is the control tower, it sends orders to the rest of your members and causes them to submit. That is why the devil puts up such a fight for control of your mind. You see, once his thoughts are in your mind he is in control and God is out of control. The mind is the foundation of your success and victory. So you have to know how to stay God conscience and to fortify it. So don’t just put any kind of thought in your mind. Remember, every thought you think affects you on an eternal basis. So fleece your thoughts with The Word of God. Guard your thoughts at all times.

Don’t let anything take the place of the Lord in your mind.

 

2 Corinthians 10: 4-5

For The Weapons Of Our Warfare Are Not Carnal, But Mighty Through God To The Pulling Down Of Strong Holds;) Casting Down Imaginations, And Every High Thing That Exalteth Itself Against The Knowledge Of God, And Bringing Into Captivity Every Thought To The Obedience Of Christ

 

Your mind has been called full time into the Gospel of Jesus Christ you are not to be part-time in the gospel. Your quality of thinking should coincide with God’s character and His character never wavers. In short, your thinking should be based on The Word of God at all times. You should acknowledge God in all aspects of your life to include your thoughts. (IGABTTMHO All Rights Reserved)
