What Really Happens When You Don’t Watch Your Thoughts

Key Scripture


Philippians 4:9, Proverbs 4:23, Philippians 4:8, Psalms 119:11

Philippians 4:8

-Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Philippians 4:9

-Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

Proverbs 4:23

– Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

Psalms 119:11

-Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

 

A poem I really love by Julia Carney says, “Little drops of water, little grains of sand make the mighty ocean and the pleasant land”. It could sum up to say something big starts out small. Thoughts are very important and little by little they affect our lives in more ways than we can imagine. Basically, most of our actions arise from thoughts, something far or near, experiences, something we remember or that someone said. It is important that we are mindful of what gets into our hearts and we can work on this by being careful of the things we watch, listen to and even the people we surround ourselves with. Because little by little these things create something in our minds and it results in our belief system, in how we view life, how we react to situations and our mindset generally. It is healthy to avoid negative vibes and surround ourselves with people who motivate, inspire and who can also constructively criticize when we do wrong.

It might be difficult to let go of a particular thought pattern, In fact, it is really difficult, if thoughts come gradually, how will it go so quickly?. That is where the help of God comes in. If it is constant negativity, talk to the Father about it and he will fill you up with his positive vibes, Yes, God gives the best positive vibe. Whatever it is, renew your mind with his good words and your heart will be transformed and good thoughts will blossom. Replace whatever is not of him with his fullness. And if it comes gradually just trust the process, the Lord who has started his good works will not leave you undone. You see, he does not give himself in pieces. Go to him today. He will cleanse your thoughts and replenish your mind constantly. Be conscious of your thoughts now, what are they like, do they glorify God?
