What if you had to say everything you thought? What if there was no control that stopped you from vocalising everything that came to mind? Would you be OK with that? Do you think Kingdom thoughts? Would you be OK if everyone you know knew every thought in your head?
Generally we don't filter our thoughts much. I mean sure the really bad ones we actively stop but generally we don't. We think things about people we shouldn't. We think the things we want to say but know we shouldn't. We think about the things we want to do but shouldn't. We let the devil plant sinful thoughts in our heads and we entertain them. We entertain thoughts that we know will distance us from God because we don't think there is any real consequence if we don't act. BUT THERE IS. When we entertain these thoughts we let Satan take control of our minds!!
Negative thoughts that aren't filled with God's truth will never be beneficial to us. They will never lead us in the way everlasting. They won't help us to distinguish the voice of our shepherd. As children of the king we must claim our minds. Take control of everything we think and let our minds be places where the kingdom reigns. We must think thoughts that scream Jesus and flee from those that stink of Satan.
WE ARE THE BRIDE OF CHRIST AND WE WILL ONLY THINK THOUGHTS THAT BRING HIM GLORY!!!!!
