Good morning people who think about things Jesus would think about
Many battles are won or lost in our minds. We have heard the phrase, ‘the battlefield of the mind’, and indeed, this is a reality for every person, albeit in different areas.
I’ve been gripped by this thought as we continue our journey together:
“If Jesus wouldn’t think about it, then I won’t think about it.”
There’s a big difference between a thought that enters our mind, and a thought that we continue to think about.
In the negative sense, ‘continuing to think about something’ is called worry.
In the positive sense, ‘continuing to think about something’ is called meditation.
Here’s two contrasting scriptures:
Psalm 19:14 NIV May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
Matthew 6:25 NIV Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
I choose what I allow myself to think about. I want to choose wisely.
