Chris Underwood: Encouragement Note, May 2017

“We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.”

Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:

Each of knows that what fills our eyes and ears causes a reaction within our brains. Those thoughts translate into actions that are obedient to the will of God, or disobedient.

Thankfully the Bible scriptures remind us daily to think of the things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, and anything else that we want recorded in the book of Life.

The positive virtues help shape us to be filled with strength of the Lord, and makes it possible to repent of sin. Consider some or all the sin that once were a struggle to reject in your life. Those obstacles are eliminated or greatly reduced from your life through the blessing of the Jesus who gave his life for our redemption.

We still have to be careful with our words that come out of our mouths. The beginning of those words are a reflection of our thoughts. Think on being humble in the daily presence of the Lord, and he will lift you up.

Romans 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Have a great day.
