“Be Careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 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.” Philippians 4: 6-8
Its all in the attitude . . . That is a phrase that we hear repeatedly but so soon forget. Many of the things we face each day are designed to bring out the worst in each of us. Its a plan put into place by the devil long ago in the Garden of Eden. He placed questions and doubt in the heart of Eve, as he beguiled her with his questions of God’s true love for her. Each day our minds become filled with questions and doubts; what about this, how will we handle that, Is God really listening to us at all, and does He even care? Thats when we need to pause and “Think on these things” . . . . things that are honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, full of virtue and praise . . . . because it truly is all in the attitude of our hearts and mind. Whatever we think upon becomes the focus of our attitude and our attitude directs the focus of our day. When we think on things according to God’s perspective we will be able to come to Him in prayer and supplication with thanksgiving in our hearts; and when we are able to do that we will experience the peace of God that truly passes all understanding. So Today . . . . Think on These Things !!!!
