I just wanted t do a blog about our thoughts.
The scripture has tons to say about our thought life.
Random Thoughts About Were Thoughts Come From
For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. Proverbs 23:7 (nkjv)
1. OUR THOUGHTS CAUSE FEELINGS.
Job 21:6 When I think about this, I am terrified; trembling seizes my body.
2. OUR THOUGHTS CAUSE ACTIONS.
Ephesians 4:17-19 So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. 18 They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. 19 Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more.
3. OUR THOUGHTS HAVE CONSEQUENCES.
Matthew 15:17-20 “Don’t you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body? 18 But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man ‘unclean.’ 19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. 20 These are what make a man ‘unclean’; but eating with unwashed hands does not make him ‘unclean.’ ”
4. WE CHOOSE OUR THOUGHTS
1 Corinthians 14:20 Brothers, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults.
What are we to do with our thoughts
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5
Albert Einstein said, “I want to know God’s thoughts”.
Just something to think about 🙂
