During my husband’s coaching career he has often been seen putting his index finger to his temple and tapping. This gesture is a sign to his players that they need to quit reacting to the game and THINK ABOUT IT instead!
We have a clear directive in God’s Word about our thoughts. First, we are called by Paul in his second letter to the Corinthian church to bring our thoughts captive...
...we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5b NIV
Then, Paul writes these words to the church at Philippi mapping out how to bring our thoughts captive...
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true (reality), whatever is noble (respect), whatever is right (fair), whatever is pure (not sin-polluted), whatever is lovely (expressed love), whatever is admirable (positive character)—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things Philippians 4:8 NIV with Dennis Fisher add in parenthasis)
Taking our thoughts captive and measuring them with these ‘whatevers’ is God’s way...a vital protection from damaging decisions and ruined relationships.
QUESTION: What thought do you need to bring captive and re-route today?
PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father, your thoughts are higher than mine. Today I submit my thoughts to you in obedience to your Word and yield myself to practicing the ‘whatevers’. I pray this In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
THINK ABOUT THE WHATEVERS...
THEY ARE VITAL SOUL FOOD!
