Philippians 4:7-8 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 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"
Many people want what verse seven talks about, but they don't want to do what verse six says to do in order to get it. In order to get what verse seven says, you have to practice verse six, which we studied yesterday.
People who worry and fret, continually think on the wrong side of life. They continually talk unbelief. If something isn't true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of a good report, then don't think about it. Make it meet all these qualifications. Some things you hear may be true, but they may not be pure and lovely - so don't think about them.
To do so is to give place to the devil, who is always seeking to enter your thought life. That's why the Bible says, "Think on these things."
Meditate and feed on the New Testament that are written to the Church. Through them, God speaks to His Church.
Start your week off with Jesus, Hopefully you heard a good life changing message at church today. Tami preached on putting the devil in the Hot seat. Let’s keep in there Amen
Confession: I do not fret or have any anxiety about anything. Therefore, the peace of God keeps my heart and mind through Christ Jesus. I think on those things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of a good report!
