Think on These Things
By Rusty Wilson
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 4:8
It’s important for the body of Christ to know that we have the mind of Christ. The peace of God that passes all of our understanding will keep our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus, the Word.
Anyone that has had mind battles knows the battles are tough, but we are able to overcome them with the Word of God and prayer. We need the peace of God so we can overcome the battle.
It’s important for anyone during mind battles to think on God and His Word, so that we can get our mind off of what the devil puts into our mind to think about. Getting our focus off the negative thoughts that is causing fear to come in and then causing worry to start taking place.
The Word of God doesn’t say to worry about it, it says to cast the whole care on the Lord for He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7).
Philippians 4:8 tells us what to think on, things that are true, things that are honest, things that are just, things that are pure, things that are lovely, things that are of good report; if there be any virtue (any excellence) and if there be any praise, think on these things and we have the help of the Holy Spirit, our Helper to think on these things.
God is so good He gives us the answers in His Word to think on. We pray, seeking Him and His Word and be ready with expectancy to receive the answer that He has for us as the Holy Spirit ministers them to us.
