The Word of God is the “how to” book that we Christians were gifted with by our wonderful Father; it is the will of God for our lives. I mean those 66 books contain all the secrets and directions on how to live the right way. Out of all the topics the Bible talks about, one that is important for us all to be cognisant about is the mind.
The mind is where all battles are fought. When facing hardships, it’s your mind that reminds you of them, just as when you are happy it’s your mind that tells you that this is something worth celebrating. When the enemy is attacking you, he does it in the mind; what is it about the mind? Let’s take a look at this scripture:
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
This verse implies we think in our hearts. The Bible seems to describe the heart as the centre of everything and it controls us, our actions and our ways. So if we think in our hearts and it leads to actions that are good and also bad, what does the Bible suggest we do about our thoughts?
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, 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.
Above are the things the Bible encourages us to think about and dwell on. Our thoughts are so random that sometimes we feel like we can’t control them but the Word of God tells us that He gave us the spirit of self-control so everything that we have can be controlled however we have to make an effort to be able to get to that point where it’s just part of us.
We have to make an effort to fill our minds with the truth of God’s Word; that will help us dwell on good things, and give us the ability to identify any untruths. We have to reject any thought that does not line up with the Word of God.
In conclusion, we need to take care of our minds with the Word of God, we have to have a daily dose of this wonderful medication which will help us be able to live the life that our God destined for us. Our thoughts matter because they lead to actions therefore we need to pay attention to what we think about.
