Higher thoughts

Love

Romans 12:2 (NLT)
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

You take a thought by saying… 

In Matthew 6:31 the Bible says take no thought saying, “What shall we eat or what shall we drink?” This says to me that you take a thought when you verbalize that thought. Many thoughts can run through my mind, but I do not have to take every thought as my own.

So what do you do when the thoughts you are having are not good thoughts? You replace them! Now you cannot replace a thought with a thought. You have to replace a thought by saying something to combat that thought.  The Bible says it this way in 2 Corinthians 10:5, “…and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” In other words we replace or combat a negative thought by speaking the truth.

Thoughts are important. There is a proverb which says as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. The thoughts you think are important. The way in which you think about yourself, is the way you will ultimately see yourself.  The way you see yourself will determine your actions. This is why it is important to think on good things; those things that are true.

You have got to say something…

If a thought enters your mind that you are weak, then you replace it with the truth of God’s word by saying, “I am strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.” If the thought enters your mind that you are defeated, then you combat it with the truth of God’s word by saying, “I am more than a conqueror…” If the thought enters your mind that you are not important or that you do not matter, then you speak the truth of God’s word saying, “I am God’s masterpiece and He has good plans for me…”

There is life and death in the words you speak. Are you speaking what God would have you to speak or are you speaking words contrary to His words. The Bible says out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Therefore you and I have to take the time to fill your heart with the truth of God’s word. Remember you cannot combat a thought with a thought. Instead you must speak truth; you have got to say something… 

His thoughts are higher…

Do you desire to have God’s thoughts? I do! Because His thoughts are higher than my thoughts. God sees things always through the eyes of love because He is love. Love sees from a higher perspective… a different perspective and therefore thoughts from a place of love are higher. It is time to go higher in the way you think so that you may see yourself, others and situations from a higher perspective.

My prayer for you is that you only think on what is true. You say what God would have you to say. As we yield to the Spirit of God and listen for His thoughts, only then will you speak what you hear…  It’s time to go higher…

Remember to be REAL…
