Remember you are redeemed through his blood!
Our thoughts are important, so important that Satan uses them to insert his lies. He knows are mind is powerful and if he can get us to think lowly of ourselves, believe his lies and think impure things, he has us.
Proverbs 23:7 says ” For as he thinks within himself, so is he.” NKJV
So if you think you won’t get that job, your poor, your worthless that is what you become. What you think ultimately travels to your heart. Just like words are powerful so are your thoughts and you have to fight back with the word of God. God thinks so highly of you that he gave his only begotten son as a living sacrifice for you. Jesus DIED FOR YOU! He SUFFERED FOR YOU so you wouldn’t have to.
Romans 8:6 ” For the mind is set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the spirit is life and peace.” NKJV
When you think your worthless or other fleshly or undesirable things, have you noticed you that you don’t feel happy or joyful even when you hang out with your friends? That’s because when your mind is set to think on things that are not good or positive or noble it brings death and destruction.
Philippians 4:8 “Finally, Brethren, whatever is true, whatever is Honorable, whatever is righ, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”
It’s important to meditate on Gods word daily, Pray without ceasing and be careful of what you watch and listen to. Ultimately what you watch and listen to you will dwell on. For an example If your listening to secular music a song about heartbreak and what that man did to you. You will dwell on, how can you be healed if you keep you mind on your heart break. What room do you lave for God to heal your heart? That’s why you should be careful of what you listen to and watch. You will dwell on the things that you give your attention to on a daily basis. when you dwell on God and his word it brings peace and life.
That doesn’t mean you won’t struggle or go through trials but it means God will be there, he will be your strength. Don’t take my word for it read the Bible for yourself, pray, and fast. Ask God to reveal it you.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” Second Corinthians 12:9

Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from trouble.- Proverbs 21:23 KJV
Wow, isn’t this verse powerful? The bible speaks often about the power of words. Its in the Old and New Testament.
I hate the saying “keep it real” or keep it 💯” because these phrases and sayings are not biblical. A lot of “chriatians” use it and ignore what the Bible says.
Proverbs 21:23 is saying he who controls his mouth or he who is careful of what he says keeps himself from trouble.
How many of you have lost friends and family because of something you have said. Words are very powerful. They can heal, encourage, or destroy. God wants us to always be truthful, but he also wants us to do everything in love.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. – Proverb 18:21
What has your tongue produced lately? Was it death or was it life?
We can’t bless and praise God and turn around and curse our friends, family and strangers.
Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men. Which are made in similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethern, these things ought not so to be. -James 3:9,10 kjv
Let’s keep our mouth from producing fire and death. Lets uplift and edify! If someone hurts us, wrong us lets in return pray for them. Instead of cursing them out.
And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among its members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth onbfire thebcourse od nature; and it is set on fire of hell. -James 3:6 kjv
Lets guard our hearts, and choose our words carefully because the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. So fill your heart up with God and His Word.
Keep they heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. -Proverbs 4:23 kjv
God Bless You

The world tells us we need degree, money, and lots of expensive material things to be successful. The world also says we need those things to feel secure, and to secure security for our protection.
What was Israel’s security? What was Moses security? What was Kind Davids security?
The answer is God. Our trust does not and should not be in our government, people, money or material things. Our trust needs to be in God always.
“We trust in the name of the Lord our God. “- Psalm 20:7
Let’s learn from King David when he was fleeing from King Saul, (This was before David became king) and when he was fleeing his son Absalom (this was after David was king). He prayed to God without ceasing, he trusted in God! Hey obeyed God!
So trust in the name of the Lord our God!

“Love is not just sentiment; it’s service.” -Walk Thru The Bible
What are your thoughts on thoughts on this quote?
I agree with this quote, God says in his word the greatest commandment is love. Yet you see many people who say they are believers but they show you everything except love. The world tells us to have conditional love for others but our father loves us unconditionally and calls us to do the same. We have to love those who love us and those who make it hard for us to love them. I feel our father tells us exactly what love is and how we should display it in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. Look up these verses and take the time to pray about them and ask God to give you understanding of these verses and to help you put them into practice daily.
God bless you
