Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy; meditate on these things. (Philippians 4:8)
There are many elements of our lives that we may feel totally powerless over but our thoughts are not one of them. We absolutely have the power to choose what we will dwell, meditate or think continuously about. Now, do not get me wrong. I am not saying random thoughts, we did not choose, will not ever enter our minds…of course they will. However, to give them space to take up home, is totally up to us.
When thoughts based on the undesirable circumstances of our lives are bombarding our minds like a military assault. We have the responsibility to end it. Is it easy? Of course not! Is it possible to put a stop to it? Absolutely! God gives us the power to take control of our thoughts and when we follow His path, we will find the onslaughts get fewer and further between.
Regardless of what is going on and from whatever direction it may be coming; do not fill your mind and heart with thoughts of hurt, pain, frustrations and the people who makes you “feel some kind of way.” Instead, choose to take your power back by thinking and meditating on POSITIVE THINGS! Everyday, many times a day, we have the choice to think good thoughts or not…the choice is ours.
Make the right choice, the Godly choice and choose to think the thoughts that will bring life and not death.
