Think On These Things

It can be difficult in our humanity to rid ourselves of the clutter in our thoughts. Circumstances and situations can evoke emotions within us that can be difficult to cope with.

It takes an active, conscious effort to partner with God in the valleys...to bring every thought captive to the obedience of Christ...to think, practice and dwell on truth and that which is holy and pleasing unto Him.

"Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you." (Philippians 4:8-9)

"We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ..." (2 Corinthians 10:5)

"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect." (Romans 12:2)
