Think On These Things

Think On These Things

Philippians 4:8 tells us what we are to think on. “Think on these things, whatever things are honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report. If there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, THINK on these things.” I love that the Word of God even helps us in our thought life. We have to discipline what we are thinking about. You can’t stop thoughts from coming but you CAN stop where they land. You can discipline yourself by determining if that thought lines up with Philippians 4:8. Is it honest, just, pure, lovely or of good report? If not, throw it out. Replace it with thoughts that do line up with this scripture. We are hit every day with thoughts and by well meaning people that speak into our lives. The decision is yours. It will take discipline. You have to be diligent and purposeful on what you think about.

The reward? The next scripture—Philippians 4:9: “Do these things as I have done them and the God of Peace will Reign in your life.” Want a peaceful life? Watch what you’re thinking about!
