Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus. Philippians 2:5 (NKJV)
We can choose what to think and decide how we think. It’s not true that we can’t help what to think about. Thoughts are like birds; you may not prevent them from flying around your head but you certainly can stop them from building a nest in your head! Our Lord Jesus admonished us saying “take no thought saying” Thoughts are words not yet spoken. Just as we can choose what words to speak and decide how we speak or talk we can choose what thoughts to run in our minds and decide how we think. God says he knows the thoughts he has towards us. That they are thoughts of peace, wholeness, wellbeing. It means God is intentional and deliberate in his thinking. He intentionally thinks peace, wholeness, wellbeing, prosperity towards us. We have the mind of Christ which is the mind of God. 1Corinthians 2:16. We can intentionally choose to think peaceful, wholesome, prosperous thoughts. We can choose not to be anxious, troubled, fearful, discouraged. The Word of God is his thoughts. When we choose to meditate on it, we are intentionally, deliberately and purposefully think God thoughts. We are thinking as God! Remember as a man thinks in his heart so is he! Proverbs 23:7. Think life, peace, hope, wellness, victory as you think on the Word of God! Think on God’s love, goodness, faithfulness to you.
