Monday Devotional 8/8

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

Have you ever sat down to think about what you think about most?  I there are days when I am just not all that excited about life and when I find myself thinking too deeply about the situation I become just as I am thinking not excited.  Today I know to not think to deeply on things that does not show me anything that is in my future that God has for me.  When people think that they are not going to amount to anything they don't because what they are thinking is determining what they are going to become.  Abraham did not waver in his faith.  God told him he was going to be a father of many nations he kept those thoughts as held them dear.  Yes he was getting old and Sara's womb was considered closed but he thought daily the very words God had promised him.  Why is it so hard to continue to think the things over and over that the enemy speaks to us but when God tells us what he thinks and knows we can become we brush it off or say not me?  Abraham became a father of many nations because after God told he he would he began to think those thought and count them as true.  Don't count what the enemy whispers in your ear as truth.  He is a liar and the truth is not in him.  The enemy tempts us all the time with bad thoughts but we do not have to think them.  They enter our minds and we can dispose of them just as fast as they enter. 

I can't image become every bad thought that comes into my brain.  If a thought that today is going to be a bad day enter your mind of you listen to it guess what?  It is going to be a bad day.  Some days I wake up feeling like it is just not  day to celebrate.  But  I fill my mind with God's Word, that says: This is the day  that the Lord has made I will be glad and rejoice in it.  Psalm 118: 24.  I can't tell you how many times I have had to do that.  No Reason to feel that way I just do and I know that it is from my enemy because God does not want us waking up being that way without even speaking or talking with someone.  When I feel that way I have to keep my mind focused on him and thoughts about him.  Eventually I start be be compassionate like him, forgiving like him, trusting like him because I am thinking about him!  Let's go deeper...As a Man thinks about God he becomes like him  or As a man thinks about the Devil he becomes like him!  Oh my when you open that up it does not sound so good does it?  Well when we are thinking negative, evil, complaining, hurtful, envious thoughts that is the person we are thinking of.  The devil represents all of the above.  When you are thinking of God your are happy, joyful, thankful, glad, and at peace.  His Son died to give us all of the above.  Let's make sure that if we are what we think as the bible tells us that we are Like God our Father!

God Bless
