Cleaning Out Our Thought Closets

Our best arsenals against unpleasing thoughts to the Lord, is to fill our heart with the word, and to pray. 

What has been taking up room in your thought closet, anger towards another, hate, unkind words about others or yourself?

Perhaps it is time we take stalk of what is going in and out of our thought closets:

I like what Jenifer Rothschild says about this in her book Self Talk Soul Talk

“Our thought closets CAN become arsnenals stocked with the Weapons of Truth.” (Rothschild 76)

Are we letting the words of the Lord fill our thought closets, and then truly letting our mind, our thoughts become Weapons of truth, or are we letting other things filter through our minds?

I am only human, we all are, and the truth is there are going to be times when the ways of the world start playing through our mind, but we have a choice, we can let those thoughts take unenecessary room in our thoughts, or we can fill our thoughts with the word of the Lord.

Our best arsenals against unpleasing thoughts to the Lord, is to fill our heart with the word, and to pray.

2 Corinthains 10:4 reminds us

The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.

When we keep our thoughts filled with the weapons of truth we have a stronger weapon, than anything this world has to offer.  The weapon of truth, and with Truth comes Hope, the Hope Of Christ.

“Fear betrars, hope never does.  Fear and despair make us quiver; hope makes us unshakable.” (Rothschild 83)

“We speak the language of Hope when we tell our souls to look up.” (Rotschild 83)

We need to keep our self talk and our soul talk closely alligned, we need to think the thoughts the Lord finds pleasing, and act on those, not act on anger or hate
