Who Gives Kudos:



 

  

Think on These Things

 

Phil 4:8 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.

 

Our life today is a result of our thinking yesterday.  Our life tomorrow will be determined by what we are thinking today.  What occupies our mind and what we think means more than anything else in our life.

 

What we put into our minds determines what comes out in our words and actions.  Paul tells us to program our minds with thoughts that are true, honest, just pure, lovely of good report, virtuous and praiseworthy.    The word think means to consider reflect reason and ponder.  The idea is that of focusing our thoughts until they shape our behavior.  The truth is: 

 

§         What we think is what we become

§         Where we have kept our minds is where we are

§         Our thoughts shape our behavior

§         What we do is what we think

 

A person who centers his thoughts upon the world and its things will live for the world and its things:  money, wealth, lands, property, houses, power, position recognition and a host of other worldly pursuit.  A mind that is set upon the world and the flesh is what leads to anxiety, and worry, emptiness and restlessness.  A worldly mind never knows peace, not true peace, not the peace of God. 

 

Think on these things.  Whatever things are true (real and genuine) Many things in the world seems to be true, but they are not, they are false and deceptive, an illusion, and a counterfeit.  They seem to offer peace but the offer is deceptive. 

 

We are not to fill our minds with junk whether through rumors, radio, television or even in music.  Be careful what you set your heart on for you’ll surely get it.  Be careful about what occupies your mind, because it will greatly determine what you’ll become tomorrow.  If you think you can, you can.  If you think you are, you are. 

 

Our life must be influenced by our expectations, not by our experiences, others examples or even exhilaration . 

 

It’s amazing how many people allow their thinking to determine how much they accomplish in life.  Comments such as:  “Its never be done before” or don’t get your hopes up too much “have hindered the potential of many would be achievers in life.  In the words of the children’s book: The Little Engine that could, we can all recite the words, “I think I can, I think I can”. And yes we will.  As a man thinketh so is he.  The mind is a powerful thing; and a terrible thing to waste.  Let us redirect our thinking so we can ultimately redirect our lives.  God Loves You and so do I…..
