Something to Ponder…

JULY 14, 2020

“May my spoken words and unspoken thoughts be pleasing even to you, O Lord my Rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14 (TLB)

Both Robert Browning and Emerson believed that our thought is the “soul of the act” and the “seat of action.” God’s Word says, “as a man thinks in his heart, so he is.” Bruce Lee was the world renown master of martial arts and was and still is looked upon as one of the greatest martial artists ever. He could not stress enough that “as you think, so shall you become.” By this, Bruce was acknowledging the power of the human mind to affect behavior. It was just as important to him to train the mind as it was to train the body. Our Heavenly Father knows as human beings we can think on things that are harmful to our being, and when thought on enough, we will often act upon them. As Christians, it’s important to keep our minds set on those things that will bring wholeness to our being. Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, 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.” Father God, I lift up my thoughts toward You. I ask that You guard my heart and mind, filling me with those things that are pure, lovely, true, honest, and praiseworthy. I thank You for all good things that come from You. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
