INSPIRING DAILY DEVOTIONAL ® … Think right
Text(s) for today: Phil. 4:8-9; Rom. 12:1-2, Jn. 15:3
“…as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…” Prov 23:7 KJV
Many people would not put just any thing into their mouths – they are concerned about their health.
According to the Bible, thinking right is even more vital than eating right. From the above scripture, we understand that your thoughts determine what you would be; that is to say your life today is a sum-total of your thoughts yesterday. You can’t be different from the quality of your thoughts. That’s why you must be careful exactly what you think about:
“…brethren what so ever things are true ,whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just ,what so ever things are lovely ,what so ever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be praise, think on these things …and the God of peace shall be with you”. Phil 4:8-9.
So you see, Bible presents us with exactly what we should think about – it tell us of the quality our thoughts must have. Praise God!
Child of God, don’t allow your mind to wonder around – how could you be thinking impure thoughts all day long ?
If you ever found yourself thinking wrongly, it means you’ve been feeding your mind on the wrong materials – on the wrong stuff! Start feeding on the Word of God. That’s why this site is so important. A right ‘dose’ of God’s Word daily (like we provide on our sites daily) would correct that. The 2nd verse of the 12th chapter of Romans tells us more:
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing (awakening; freshening up) of your mind …”
Only God’s Word is the best material to do this freshening up –the best stuff (food) to give to your mind. The Word is what does the renewing (Eph. 5:26; Jn.15:3).
Although this works for almost every body, there are few others who have given the devil (demons) a hold of their minds . These folks find themselves thinking wrongly almost every second. For these folks, the demons of their minds need to be cast out first before the renewal could be effectual and it’s simply to do that!
As a Christian, all you have to do to cast out the demon(s) is to place your hands on your heard and declare freedom for yourself! Remember you’ve authority as a believer! Refuse to entertain thoughts of fear, defeat, sexual immorality and perversion, thoughts of hatred, malice, wickedness and any other wrong thought. You can, because God said you should.
Prayer & Confessions (pray out loudly)
Lord I thank you so much for your Word is a blessing in my life. I bring my thoughts in subjection to your Word in Jesus’ Name. I command the meditations of my heart to be in conformity to the Word of God (Psa. 19:14). My thoughts cannot wonder to the wrong stuff, in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.
