I’ve been reading Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer and she says, “we need to line up our thinking with God’s Word. If we refuse to do this or choose to think it is unimportant we will never experience victory”.
Could it be that I have been thinking thoughts that are not Godly and that my thought life has affected how I lead my life?I felt that the answer is YES!! Proverbs 23:7 says, ”For as he thinks in his heart, so is he”.
…Whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honourable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and loveable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise think on and weigh and take account of these things. Philippians 4:8
Lining up our thinking with God’s Word isn’t just a one-off thing either, we need to do it EVERYDAY! We need to constantly renew our minds. Reading our Bibles enables God to show us how He thinks so we can compare that with what isn’t His thoughts and CHOOSE RIGHT!
Let’s choose the right thoughts today!
