Protect Your Mind With Right Thoughts

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.  9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.  (Philippians 4:8-9) 

The mind is a terrible thing to waste.  You can waste your mind by thinking negative and deceitful thoughts.  You can waste your mind by thinking on unhealthy thoughts.  You can waste your mind by thinking on thoughts that are not heavenly.  If you want peace to reign in your life, think on honest and just things.  Think on things that are fair.  Think on things that are pure.  Think on things that are right, honourable and noble.  Leave the dishonest things to dishonest people.  Leave the unjust things to unjust people.  If you want peace to reign in your life, think about the good things that you see in others.  Think about how you can praise God to the highest.  Those thoughts are not wasteful.  When you use your mind to mediate on these things, God’s peace will reign in your life. Protect your mind with the right kind of thinking.  Your unrighteous thoughts can lead your body to unrighteous action.  Protect your thoughts.  Protect your mind.

    Pastor I can see how thinking to much, or long on my financial situation can also hinder my focus on God. So for me, it is not just thinking negative things, but anything that prevents me from keeping my mind on Jesus could block my spiritual growth. This can be hard sometmes, but I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me. Again I thank God for putting you in my life, helping me to identify what’s going on in my life.
