What I realized is even our thoughts are known. For real, we are observed in our going out and coming in; our thoughts are known! Temptation comes through what we see. Our hearts respond as we will. Now that is saying a lot. When our will is in line with God’s Word, Hallelujah! We are in a position of blessing. To put it mildly- “Blessing Unlimited!” Our wants, needs, desires all taken care of by He who is Love.
So saying this let us see what it says about our thoughts and desires:
Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life.
“The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart.
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,
2 Corinthians 10:3-5
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Let your eyes look directly ahead And let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you.
We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,
2 Corinthians 10:5
We have curtailed just a fraction of the teachings on thoughts which for the most part speaks about what leads to desires. Desires are what we want. Let us take a peek about “desire.”
Psalm 37:4 gives a promise that can often strike us as too good to be true when it says, “Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.” But it is Scripture, it is given by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and it is God’s personal promise to each of His children. One of Satan’s greatest and most frequently used lies to believers and unbelievers alike is that God is a cosmic killjoy. In other words, his assertion is that God does not want to give us what we want, and by implication, He will not give us what we want. Therefore, in order for us to get what we want, we would need to go and get it by ourselves, by our own means, by our own power, and by our own ways. Of course, anytime we do this we will come to regret it as we recognize that God’s ways are the best ways and that He tells us not to sin because He doesn’t want us to hurt ourselves or anybody else. Psalm 37:5 gives a complementary truth to verse 4 saying, “Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it.” The idea is that God wants us to trust Him by committing the entirety of our lives, desires, and hopes to His care and perfect timing, planning, and giving. He doesn’t want us to do things our own way, walking by sight and human wisdom but rather by faith and the wisdom which only He can supply. As we trust Him, we can be sure that God will do what is good, right, and pure.
We started this out to be a brief diatribe, The Word Lives! We may start of talking about one subject, but by His grace, drift into another. Truth? At times people need it. What we know them to need, The holy Spirit knows all, being led we by His grace hit the nail on the head.
There are many times when people are wrong and drift on without prayer. Stop them! In fact, curtail them by directing a word of prayer. In every situation where there are believers, we should all say a word of prayer. In my impression, this is the way it was and is meant to be.
Alright, a quick word of prayer and we are done.
Father Lord, Hallelujah! There is none like You! Awesome in Holiness and giving in grace. We are subject to You. You created us, we praise You for Your Love. Each second we have, we commit into Your Loving arms. Father, where time does not exist; You are. At times we may ask, we know by Your grace we receive, You know Father- the timing is right. We may ask, we are aware that at times our blessings are held up. Father, it via more reason to thank You, for with a heart of praise Our blessings rain down. Soak me Lord, with Your plenty. Father, where I stand in need of forgiveness-make me whole by Your grace. Thank You Father, I praise and glorify You. Lord, go before me! I pray that in my all, You be glorified in Jesus’ name, Amen
