“But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts?” Luke 5:22 (KJV)
What are the thoughts in your heart today?
Should Jesus“perceive” your heart right now?
What do you think about yourself?
How do you see yourself in life today?
Are your thoughts in line with what God has said about you or you are importing different opinions from the various things you have exposed yourself to?
You are a product of your thoughts, and if you can have control over your thoughts, the Bible describes you as a Great person.
“He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.” Proverbs 16:32
Once again ask yourself if Jesus could ask you openly about your thoughts what would HE be saying to you?
“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.” Philippians 4:8
Examine the contents of your thoughts about yourself.
Speak to the challenges you are facing right now using the right words to guide the outcomes that you desire. “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.” Proverbs 23:7
God says concerning you that His thoughts towards you are superb. “ For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” Jeremiah 29:11
Once again Jesus is asking you what type of thoughts are you thinking in your heart about yourself.
It’s not about what you are thinking of the other person or me in your life, today’s reflection is about what are you thinking about yourself.
It’s so easy to let your thoughts lose on other people especially those who you perceive that they don’t like you or you already classified them as your enemies. Such ideas come about so quickly because of the nature of a man’s heart.
However, the productive thoughts that will personally change your destiny and empower you to fulfill your God-given destiny require discipline and focus.
This new year resolve that your thoughts about yourself will be in line with God’s purpose for your life and the assignments He has given you.
What’s going on in your hear right now about You?
