3 stooges

There is probably no exercise more important to the Christian than a controlled thought life. Contrary to popular opinion it is “thought” first than “action”; so control your thoughts, control your actions.

That is one reason why pornography is so terrible, it fills your mind, poisoning it. I’ve counseled former heroin addicts that said “kicking H” was easier than leaving sexual addiction.

So rule one, don’t start.

Rule two, Jesus does rescue every addiction.

 

For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Proverbs 23:7.

 

There was a sign in a business that said, “We are not what we think we are; what we think—we are.”

 

What are you allowing into your mind and thereby controlling your heart, your actions, and your words? God made you where you can’t think two thoughts at one time. If you’re thinking what’s right, you can’t be thinking what’s wrong. And as you think, you will become. Guard your mind. Center your mind upon the Lord Jesus. Don’t let the devil take away your pure-hearted devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Stay in love with Jesus and there won’t be any room for those filthy, dirty, wicked, lascivious, lustful, and prideful thoughts that bombard us all.

 

Start today to become more active in marshalling your thoughts and bringing them into obedience to Christ (2 Cor. 10:5). Use Phil. 4:8 as a sieve through which you pass each thought.

Keep praying for Sharon W, more surgery tomorrow if the bone graph worked.

Pray for Simone, who lost her mother at 91 years of age

And for Laura Lee H, maybe a few weeks left in her battle with cancer, pray for her daughters.
