What Are You Thinking About?
“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 4:8 (KJV)
Some believers see the word as a problem. Each time they are asked to open the Bible, they take it as a troublesome act. When you have this kind of attitude, I can tell you categorically that you are not going anywhere. Job said, “I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food” (Job 23:12, KJV). The Psalmist said in Psalm 119:162 (KJV), “I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.” In other words, anytime you open your Bible, you should rejoice that you are getting something new again. As you meditate on that word, say to yourself, “I will not die unsung. I will leave my footprints in the sands of time. I will overcome.” Such words will sink into your spirit. And just as Proverbs 23:7 puts it, as a man thinks in his heart, so he is. If you find yourself naturally thinking about the word, then your life will begin to align with your thoughts. Therefore what you fill your mind with is very important. So what are you thinking about?
Your thoughts will determine the actions you take. If you think about excellence, you will produce excellence. In the same way, if you think about mediocrity, you will produce mediocrity. Look at David: when he confronted Goliath, his words showed his thought pattern. He recalled the lion and the bear he had killed in times past and declared to Goliath his demise. And so it was.
So how do you think correctly? Our text for today answers that question: all things that are pure are right. Therefore, if you catch yourself thinking impure thoughts, simply arrest them and replace them with the right thoughts. If a thought is not lovely, change it to something else. Apply this word to your thought life and you will see drastic changes. Take this word and chew on it from now till Sunday. You will see many areas of your life changing for the better.
