Protecting Your Thoughts
It is so important that we pay attention to what we are putting into our minds. When we put the wrong things in, we cannot expect the right things to come out.
We have to fill ourselves daily with the Word of God. The things we read, watch, and hear will settle in our hearts. The mouth speaks out of the abundance of the heart.
Have you ever said anything negative about yourself and then asked yourself why you said that? Where did that come from? Your heart. Essentially, that started with a thought probably resulting from something you saw or heard, settled in your heart, and you spoke it.
Well, I can tell you that just yesterday I did this. I recognized there needed to be an adjustment in me.
This is when we pray and ask God to give us revelation. God is so gracious and will show us what His Word says about us. His Word is what we want to put in our minds. This allows His Word to get into our hearts and that is what we begin to speak.
