Dear close friends, at the outset, let’s just humbly echo the prayer of this dear saint of God – Oh Lord, Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight.
Our thoughts is really valuable to God – He desires a deep fellowship with the human race which He has developed in His image & likeness. A single can not fellowship with a reduce creation (for instance, nevertheless substantially a particular person likes his pet dog, the dog will stay a dog and man will stay a man and the dog can by no means have an understanding of the thoughts of the larger becoming.) Contrast this with what Paul says in 1 Cor two:16 For who has identified the thoughts of the Lord ? that he could instruct him? But we have the thoughts of Christ. A born once again particular person has the capacity to have an understanding of factors of God & to have His thoughts in a sense. And I thank God for Him opening this way to deep fellowship with Him, Yea, even to the extent that we are now His sons! (John 1:12)
We are the temple of the Living God – and our thoughts is the sacred spot, so it really is so crucial to retain it Holy & Blameless. The most important genuine-estate in the planet is your thoughts. (The lord estimates a human soul to be extra important than the complete worth of the developed earth!).
At this juncture, the prayer of this Godly man in Psalm 19:14 comes to our thoughts. If ever we’ve necessary it extra than ever just before, it is NOW. Dear youngster of God, make it a point to study the thoughts of your thoughts to see what is occupying your thoughts for most of the time. List them – are these thoughts of evil origin, worldly origin, fleshly origin, thoughts of harm or thoughts of the holy spirit. Let not satan and his planet method occupy the valuable space in the temple of the living God.

You are what you feel. Proverbs 23:7 says, “As he thinketh in his heart so is he.” . (If you see the portion in Ezekiel eight:eight-12, it is a image of the Lord seeing into the recesses of people’s heart.) Proverbs 24:9 reads, “The believed of foolishness is sin…” In Matthew five:28, Jesus stated that whoever appears at a lady with lust has currently committed adultery with her in his heart.
Beloved, A holy inner life is the only issue that pleases God. 1 Samuel 16:7 (The LORD does not appear at the factors man appears at. Man appears at the outward look, but the LORD appears at the heart) Praise the Lord for His excellent energy, adore and grace to transform our meditations. Ephesians four:22-24 (four:22) You had been taught, with regard to your former way of life, to place off your old self, which is becoming corrupted by its deceitful desires (four:23) to be created new in the attitude of your minds (four:24) and to place on the new self, developed to be like God in accurate righteousness and holiness.
